Sakho has been on the books of Liverpool since the summer of 2013 when he made the switch from Paris Saint-Germain for a transfer fee reported by The Guardian to be worth £16 million.
The France international defender arrived at Anfield with a strong reputation, but the centre-back has failed to make a huge impact and spent the second half of last season on loan at Crystal Palace.
The 27-year-old did well during his time at Palace and helped the Selhurst Park outfit stave off relegation to the Championship at the end of the 2016-17 campaign.
Sakho is now back at Liverpool, but club legend Nicol has suggested that the former PSG defender is not good enough for the Merseyside outfit.
Nicol told ESPN FC on the prospect of Liverpool keeping Sakho for next season: “(Sakho) is fine when all you ask him to do is go and charge into challenges, head the ball away, just do straightforward things, and at Palace they were defensive, there was no space around them for people to get past them and make them look bad, so they looked good.”
Sakho is a decent defender, and perhaps Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp should give him another chance.
The Reds do look vulnerable at the back, and it would not hurt to have a player of the Frenchman’s experience in the team.
