Nice eyeing Crystal Palace defender Mamadou Sakho

Nice are eyeing Crystal Palace defender Mamadou Sakho.

Foot Mercato says Nice see the veteran as an alternative to Strasbourg defender Mohamed Simakan, who has already seen a €15m OGCN offer turned down.

With Sakho's deal to expire in June, Nice are ready to offer Palace a cut-price deal to sell this month.

And the veteran would be open to returning to France, having opened the door to the idea earlier this season.

The 30 year-old stopper is a former PSG captain.
