The 24-year-old moved to lens three-and-a-half years ago from Nimes, but mainly, due to injuries, he is now down the pecking order under Joel Muller.
"Yes I want to leave Lens," said Sakho.
"But I must tell you there is no link with the atmosphere. The fans love me, I have the support of the coach and my team-mates. But something inside my mind has been broken.
"I am low. It is nothing to do with the fact that I don't play.
"Anyway, the team play very well, so Joel Muller won't change the players. I don't want to fall out with anyone. I want to leave without any trouble.
"Everyone must take advantage. I will try to be professional until the end, I am not a cheat."
Muller has admitted that it is difficult for Sako at the moment, saying: "I met him several times and he told me of his desire to leave.
"We can say he is the victim of our success and I can feel he is not at ease and he has to find his own solutions, but perhaps he won't be any more happy somewhere else."
Reports are now suggesting that Sakho could be involved in a possible swap deal for Marseille's Zoumana Camara.
