A source from Sky Sports has revealed that Paris Saint-Germain defender Mamadou Sakho could end up in England after expressing his desire to leave the French club this summer. While Liverpool have already been linked with Sakho over the last few weeks, the source says that Manchester City and Arsenal have entered the picture as a likely landing spot for the defender.

Liverpool recently secured defensive reinforcements when they signed left-back Aly Cissokho on a season long loan last week. The club however, may still be looking for a central defender to help bolster a back four that has already brought in the experienced Kolo Toure.

“PSG are ready to do a deal, and the interest is big – he is a top talent, and it is not surprising,” a Sky Sports source revealed.

“He is a top player and, although PSG are willing to sell, they do still want good money for him, but there is now a good chance that he will move and he could very well be heading for England.”

PSG manager Laurent Blanc may not be able to keep the 23 year old defender in Paris as the boss revealed Sakho told the club he would like to leave this summer. With the center-back’s contract expiring next year, PSG may be looking to offload him before they lose him as a free agent next summer.

“When players express their desire to leave in their head, it is not always clear. He expressed his desire to the club. Will there be a solution by September 2nd? I hope so, for the player and for the club,” Blanc said, according to Sky Sports.

With Arsenal yet to bring in any new signings this summer besides 20 year old striker Yaya Sanogo, manager Arsene Wenger could make Sakho his first big signing of the summer as Sky Sports reported that PSG are willing to sell the defender for £8 million.
