According to The Sun on Sunday (print edition, page 57, January 3, 2021), West Ham United and West Bromwich Albion are interested in signing Mamadou Sakho from Premier League rivals Crystal Palace in the January transfer window.

The report in the British tabloid has claimed that Palace would be open to selling the former Liverpool central defender this month, with the 30-year-old out of contract at the end of the season.

West Brom manager Sam Allardyce signed Sakho when he was in charge of Palace and is looking to bring him to The Hawthorns on a loan deal, according to the report.

However, Allardyce is reportedly facing competition from his old club West Ham.
