Liverpool defender set to be axed this summer and join Serie A side?

SakhoIn a slightly worrying turn of events for Liverpool fans here in the boozy Transfer Tavern, there are various reports that a first team central defender is set to leave the club this season.

TalkSPORT are reporting that AS Roma of Serie A are eyeing up a swoop for Mamadou Sakho, and are looking to take the French international defender on loan for the season.

Whilst Sakho, has found life relatively difficult on Merseyside since his switch from PSG, at only 25- years-old he could come good for Liverpool – if given more chances than the 16 appearances he totted up last term.

Another reason some Kop faithful are putting down their pints in anger at this rumour is that even if it was just a loan, a deal taking place this late into the window would leave Brendan Rodgers with little time to bring in a replacement, perhaps making the Reds a bit exposed at the back in the coming months.

Our resident Reds fans here in the Transfer Tavern feel that Sakho is a player that should stay at Anfield this season, because you never know what player is going to get injured!

What do you think Liverpool Fans? Would you be worried if Sakho left? Or would it be good business to get him off the wage bill? Let us know your thoughts and opinions in the comments below!
