      Still have my questions but they are reassured by the fact he will train with Kolo daily.

      I was worried this one was going to be another Mkhitaryan.  :-[. Very excited about getting him. He's potentially world class. A fantastic signing! Welcome Mamadou!   xxxxx:action-smiley-065:

      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.
