Swansea join battle for Liverpool defender Mamadou Sakho

Swansea City are chasing Liverpool defender Mamadou Sakho.

The Liverpool Echo says the Premier League strugglers have registered their interest in the France international, who will leave Anfield during the January window in a bid to relaunch his career.

New boss Paul Clement wants Sakho on board to help spearhead their push for survival.

The 26-year-old centre-back is weighing up his options with the Reds holding out for a permanent deal worth around £20million.

Sevilla and Galatasaray are also among his suitors. Southampton have been heavily linked with a move for Sakho but have yet to make official contact with Liverpool.
