City keen on PSG stopper.
Manchester City are monitoring developments with Paris St Germain defender Mamadou Sakho.
The 22-year-old, who has been pushed out by the arrival of Thiago Silva and his partnership with Alex, is keen to gain more game time.
The powerful defender has a bleak future in the French capital despite his standing as a fans favourite having been born in the city and come through the ranks at the club since the age of six.
In August, Sakho was told he was able to leave the club but dug in and has gone on to make 10 starts this season.

With Kolo Toure looking like Bambi on ice during his sub appearance against Manchester United last week and Joleon Lescott strangely frozen out by boss Roberto Mancini, a new centre-half appears to be a priority for the Champions in January.
Lescott, 30, was a staple in the side that won the title last season but has made just three League appearances this term, with Mancini preferring teenager Matija Nastasic alongside skipper Vincent Kompany at centre-half.
As central defenders go, City could do far worse than Mamadou Sakho. The Frenchman is one of Paris’ favourite sons but has struggled to win back his place in the PSG first-team after being sent off during last month’s clash with Montpellier.
The 22-year-old is powerful physical presence but also boasts the technical ability and range of passing to make him a huge success in the Premier League.
PSG are certainly in no need of cash but if Sakho feels that his future lies away from the Parc de Princes then the Ligue 1 outfit could struggle to hold onto the France international in January.
