Sakho is a typical striker’s striker. He is 6 foot 2 and not afraid to use his height to his advantage in the box. His positioning and movement are top notch. The Senegal International has the ability to get into the right areas at the right time, which makes him a nightmare to defend against.

He’s scored eight goals and assisted two more in 23 appearances in all competitions this season. That’s not a bad return for someone who is still getting used to the Premier League and adapting to Liverpool’s style of play.

His finishing needs some work but I think he has all it takes to be Liverpool’s next star striker.

The 6’3” striker, signed from Paris Saint Germain (PSG) in September 2013 for a fee of £15m, has been out of the spotlight but his size, pace and clinical finishing suggest he could be a success at Anfield.

Sakho has only started one Premier League match for Liverpool, when he picked up an injury after just 23 minutes against Newcastle. His lack of game time is a mystery to many Reds fans given the club’s struggles in front of goal and Sakho’s impressive goal scoring record.

He scored 50 goals in 225 appearances for PSG and at international level he has scored nine goals in 24 appearances. This suggests that Sakho is comfortable in front of goal and Liverpool fans will be calling on Brendan Rodgers to give him more game time.

Liverpool have only scored 19 goals this season, with Daniel Sturridge out injured for three months and Mario Balotelli failing to impress anyone since his arrival from AC Milan.

Sakho seems like the perfect fit for Liverpool. He is big and strong enough to hold up the ball with his back to goal and create space for Raheem Sterling and Adam Lallana. He is also quick enough to stretch defences, allowing Philippe Coutinho and

The transfer fee of £15.5m makes Sakho the most expensive defender Liverpool have signed in the Premier League era. It is also a considerable outlay for a player who has represented France at every level from under-16 to under-21.

However, the 23-year-old’s imposing physique (he stands 6ft 2in) and athletic style have earned him comparisons with former French international stars Marcel Desailly and Lilian Thuram.

With Daniel Agger’s future at Anfield uncertain, Sakho will be expected to form a central defensive partnership with Martin Skrtel, who made more appearances than any other Liverpool player last season.

The goal was a simple one, as they tend to be. Sakho spotted the ball with his eyes, opened his body up slightly, and with a clean strike of the ball he sent it right into the back of the net. The strike was such that the goalkeeper didn’t even have time to react.

Sakho’s quick adaptation to the Reds style of play has been impressive. He has formed a great centre back partnership with Martin Skrtel and is starting to become a fan favourite at Anfield. The fans love his passionate persona and his ability to make a last ditch tackle when needed. His enthusiasm and attitude on the pitch are infectious, as shown by his quotes after the game against Chelsea.

“I’m very happy because my first big game against Chelsea went well, but it’s not just me, it’s more than that. It’s a victory for the whole team,” Sakho told “We played as one unit and we gave our all, both collectively and individually, which is what got us the win in the end.”

The Frenchman has come a long way since he was left out of Liverpool’s tour of Asia and Australia for being overweight and unfit. He has worked hard to get fit for Brendan Rodgers’ side.

He is getting better with every game he plays for Liverpool, as he is getting used to playing in England’s top tier league. Sakho will be vital if Liverpool are to challenge for honours this season, as he provides much needed steel at the back and can also score

Liverpool have become masters of buying obscure players and turning them into superstars. Just look at Luis Suarez, who they bought from Ajax for £22.8 million after a season in which he scored 49 goals in 48 appearances. After three seasons at the club, he was sold to Barcelona for £75 million.

Meet Mamadou Sakho, the latest Liverpool player to be tipped for greatness. He is an exciting defender with great pace and skill and has already proved his worth for both club and country. He joined Liverpool from Paris Saint-Germain for £18 million in 2013, a record fee paid by a British club for a defender.

Sakho started his career at Paris Saint-Germain at the age of 12. He made his debut as a 17-year-old against Auxerre in 2007. He went on to make over 200 appearances for PSG before joining Liverpool in 2013.

In 2012/13, Sakho played 34 games as PSG won their first Ligue 1 title in 19 years. Time and time again, he proved himself to be one of the best defenders in France. He was also named captain of PSG at just 22 years old, despite being one of the youngest members of the team.

For Liverpool, the international break couldn’t have come soon enough.

The Reds’ season has been derailed by a string of injuries, but manager Brendan Rodgers is hoping to have a stronger squad to choose from when they face Sunderland at Anfield on October 25.

The return of Mamadou Sakho should give Rodgers a lift after the Frenchman’s absence coincided with some poor defensive performances in Liverpool’s 2-1 loss to Manchester United and 4-1 defeat to Arsenal.

Sakho has returned to full training and is back in contention for a starting place at Anfield this weekend, but who will partner him when he returns?
