The Senegalese striker quickly became a fan favourite at the club following his move from Metz in 2014, but out of the team and out of favour, it is time for the player to move on.
Having made five disappointing substitute appearances in the league so far, it appears Sakho’s time in east London is quickly coming to an end, and a January move seems very likely.
The 27-year-old can still make an impact at the club, but there is no point allowing the player to rot on the bench, and if Bilic refuses to utilise him, he may as well be moved off the wage bill to make room for new faces.
