A former Liverpool star is reportedly eyeing a move to Georgia in a bid to revive his career seven months after leaving his last club in controversial circumstances.

The 34-year-old spent four years at Anfield between 2013 and 2017 as he featured under Brendan Rodgers and Jurgen Klopp.

He remained in England until 2021 before returning to his homeland in France to play for Montpellier, but has been a free agent since last November.

That could be set to change, though, as Mamadou Sakho is now in talks with Georgian side Torpedo Kutaisi over a potential move, according to RMC Sport.

He has been offered a one-year deal with the option to extend by a further 12 months, and is understood to be keen on joining due to the wages on offer and the positive environment he expects his family to experience in Georgia.

If the transfer goes through, he would be managed by forgotten ex-Premier League boss Steve Kean, who was in charge of Blackburn Rovers from December 2010 to September 2012.

Kean has since had spells in Brunei, Greece, Australia and Scotland, before taking the job at Kutaisi last May. 

Sakho, who also played for Crystal Palace in the Premier League, left Montpellier by mutual consent seven months ago after reportedly getting into a physical altercation with his manager Michel Der Zakarian.

As reported by L'Equipe, Sakho grabbed Der Zakarian by the collar and knocked him to the ground in front of several witnesses during a training ground bust-up.

The confrontation was allegedly sparked by Der Zakarian calling Sakho a 'cry baby' during training, leading to the defender's furious reaction before his team-mates and staff stepped in to prevent the situation escalating.

Sakho parted ways with Montpellier just days after the alleged incident. The 29-cap international refused to take the blame in his farewell statement as he hit out out a lack of respect shown towards him.

His statement read: 'You have to know how to leave the table when respect is no longer served.

'I spent two years in this family club where I took pleasure to share my high-level experience with my team-mates and my 'little brothers' from the centre of training. At the same time, I think them for their support flawless as well as the medical stuff without forgetting the supporters who appreciated my time at the club.

'Thanks also to the sports director Bruno Carotti for his loyalty to me throughout my adventure [at] Montpellier.

'Finally, I wanted to give a special thanks to the president, Laurent Nicollin, who, like his late father did before him, heads the MHSC with the values and principles that are dear to me.

'We met as men, let's leave as men. Happy end of the season, Mamadou Sakho.'
