According to reports in Italy, Serie A outfit AS Roma are lining up a loan deal for Liverpool central defender Mamadou Sakho.

The Italian giants are looking to get cover in their central defense as their centre back and new signing  Mario Rui suffered a cruciate ligament injury on Friday which rules him out for the most part of the current season.

However, the former PSG defender is an important player for Liverpool going into their new season under Jurgen Klopp. But the player’s bad discipline coupled with an injury meant he was sent back to the United Kingdom from their pre-season tour in the United States by Klopp.

Liverpool who were not happy with the player’s discipline meant his future at the club remains unclear despite his major role in their proceedings last season.

Sakho has featured for the Reds 33 times but Roma believes that they can strike a deal with Liverpool over a potential loan move this summer.

The 26-year old who had suffered an Achilles injury meant he would be sidelined for another three weeks but Roma is keen to have him in their squad before their Champions League qualifier next month hoping he could get fit by that time.
