Liverpool cult-hero shock target for Euro champs after Klopp bust up

Liverpool defender Mamadou Sakho is a target for Turkish champions Besiktas this summer, according to the Sun.

The Frenchman emerged as a regular last season after ousting Martin Skrtel in the Reds’ backline, though has seen his future cast into after being sent home for the club’s tour of America.

He also missed both the Europa League final and Euro 2016 after being suspended by UEFA for failing a drugs test after taking a fat burning substance.

With that in mind, the Istanbul outfit are reportedly lining up a move for the 26-year old as his Anfield career looks in doubt.

Jurgen Klopp has brought in the likes of Ragnar Klavan and Joel Matip to bolster his defensive ranks, with frailty in that department particularly emerging as a sewing motif amid his opening few months in charge.

Despite the former PSG man’s standing as a Kop cult-hero, he could be shipped off to Turkey.
