      The BBC say "Sakho (...) will cost around £18m from Paris St-Germain".

      Really rate this lad, think he might have a nervy start to his career whilst he adjusts to the premier league but think he'll grow into one of the best defenders around once he gets a season or two under his belt.

      Welcome to the club Sakho.

      I think he will surprise you and will pull off a Coutinho

      Absolutely made up for this signing, a typical Hyypia replacement (I hope)

      Very pleased with this signing. My main worry is that he has not developed as much as expected over the last couple of seasons. Maybe its just a case of he needs to mature a little, but maybe it is a case of a player who advanced quickly due to his size and physical attributes finding things more difficult at higher levels.

      Fingers crossed I think he will become a top center back over the next few years.

      He won't surprise me mate, I know he's a quality player, I just think its harder for centerbacks to immediately adjust to the premier league from other leagues as the games are played at a quicker pace and a little more physical than in most leagues.

      Liverpool Transfer News: Why Mamadou Sakho Will Be a Great Success at Anfield
      By Christopher Atkins (Featured Columnist) on September 1, 2013

      Paris Saint-Germain centre-back Mamadou Sakho is set to be announced as a Liverpool player in the coming days after agreeing a move to the Anfield side. Ben Smith of BBC Sport is one of many reporting the news.

      Sakho, 23, has spent his entire career to date with the Parisien side, but has fallen behind Brazilians Thiago Silva, Alex and, most recently, Marquinhos in the pecking order.

      Still a regular feature in Didier Deschamps' France squads, however, the commanding defender and former PSG captain has chosen to move on, with the World Cup next summer a priority.

      Smith suggests that Sakho's transfer will cost Liverpool £13 million—a hefty fee for a player with one year remaining on his current contract.

      However, Brendan Rodgers will know that, in Sakho, he will have a player with enormous potential who simply hasn't quite maximised his abilities thus far in his career.

      Liverpool have been looking to find a new centre-back partner for Daniel Agger for some time, and Sakho is an ideal candidate. With impressive physical strength and good technical abilities, it is just on the mental side of his game that he needs to improve—an area where Agger is generally very strong.

      With a bit of guidance, as well as a manager who will cajole him and offer full belief in his abilities, there is no reason why Sakho cannot still become the player he was once expected to be—a truly dominant central defender.

      With Liverpool outside of European competitions this season, it is a policy Rodgers must look to adopt.

      The club failed with audacious bids for Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Willian this summer, with the lure of continental competitions taking them elsewhere.

      It is to the likes of Sakho, or even Philippe Coutinho and Daniel Sturridge before him, that the Reds must look—highly talented players who had lost their way somewhat. Give such players belief and a system to which they are suited, and the rewards could be great, at well below their potential future valuations.

      It is, of course, a far from foolproof plan, but no transfers are guaranteed to be a success. Coutinho and Sturridge have already made a significant impact at Anfield, and Sakho will have to work hard to achieve similar performance levels.

      With motivation surely not a problem with a place in Brazil next summer on the line and a need to prove himself after his fall from grace in Paris, it is surely to be expected that Sakho would be ready to put in the work required.

      The potential is there for Sakho to make a sizable impact and, if he can, Liverpool would have a player ready-made for Champions League football in the future.

      Regardless of the result against Manchester United at Anfield later today, there is undoubtedly a feel-good factor around Liverpool at present, and the signing of Sakho would only help continue that trend.

      At £13 million, given some of the huge transfer fees that have been discussed this summer, it would appear another very astute signing by Brendan Rodgers and his backroom team.

      Bit more info on Mamadou:

      Sakho was born in Paris and has spent his entire career in the French capitol, he joined the PSG Academy in 2002 and progressed into the senior ranks making his first-team debut in the Europa League against AEK Athens in Feb. 2007. He went on to become the youngest captain in their history as he established himself as a mainstay of the back four, he was crowned France's young player of the year in 2011.
      Having won the Coupe de la Ligue in 2008 he added the Coupe de France two years later and played in 27 league games last season during their Ligue one title winning campaign under Carlo Ancelotti.
      The new PSG boss Laurent Blanc favours the centre back partnership of Brazilian duo Alex and Thiago Silva and £27m signing Marqhinhos waiting in the wings, Sakho decided to seek a new challenge with LFC.

      I don't like watching the youtube video things because they give a false impression, so I have to wait until I see him play for us to make up my mind, but by all accounts he's a good player.
      Here's hoping we've got another Hyppia type gem who'll be with us for many years.

      Yes, in fact I can tell you exactly what he said moments before this picture was taken:



      "You gon die mo-fucka"



      Seriously though, there's an interview with him on LFCTV and he doesn't speak a word of English in that so either he can't or he isn't confident enough to do a full interview in English yet.
      Ilori on the other hand just sounds English.
