Nice are moving for Crystal Palace defender Mamadou Sakho.

The former PSG captain is off contract in June and expected to be on the move this year.

Nice-Matin says OGCN are keen and hope to take Sakho to France this month.

Despite the arrival on loan of William Saliba from Arsenal, Nice would like to attract the services of Sakho in the coming weeks.

The deciding factor will be if Palace are willing to release Sakho from the final months of his contract.
