Roma chasing Liverpool star

Italian giants Roma are reportedly interested in signing Liverpool defender Mamadou Sakho.

Foot Mercato reports that Roma are keen to bring Sakho to Italy on a season-long loan deal in place of Mapou Yanga Mbiwa.

Roma sold defender Alessio Romagnoli to AC Milan last week and are looking to bring in a replacement.

Sakho did not feature for Liverpool in their Premier League opener against Stoke.

Reports suggest the 25-year-old remains a part of Brendan Rodgers’ plans at Anfield.
