PSG chairman Nasser Al-Khelaifi will try his upmost to persuade Liverpool target Mamadou Sakho to stay at the French club, after claiming he is PSG's Steven Gerrard. 

Towering centre-back Sakho, 23, has been at the club since he was 12 years old but is reported to be unsettled.

Liverpool are not alone in assessing the situation though, as Italian trio AC Milan, Napoli and Roma have all enquired. 

However, chairman Al-Khelaifi is adamant that Sakho, who has played right through from the French U16's to the U21's as well as making 14 appearances for the senior side, will firmly remain at the Les Parisiens. 

As reported in The Mirror, Al-Khelaifi claimed: 

"Sakho is a child of the club just like Steven Gerrard is at Liverpool." 

"It is hard to imagine him wearing another team's jersey. I'm a little surprised that he wants to leave.

"I had a discussion with him. My position is very clear and he knows it. We want to keep him and we will do everything to achieve that."

Sakho has yet to play in a competitive game for the club this term and with his contract expiring next summer, Liverpool have added themselves to a growing list of admirers.
