Liverpool have continually been linked with a move for Watford forward Ismaila Sarr.
The Reds’ reported interest in the Senegal international popped up last summer, before signing Diogo Jota.
Sarr, who has scored 20 goals for the Hornets since 2019, is said to have asked to leave the club, as per the above report.
It’s unclear if the 23-year-old’s decision has anything to do with Liverpool, or indeed if the rumour is even accurate – but the Echo ran a story last summer that confirmed the Reds were keen on Sarr, which at least solidifies that part of the new claims.
He’s started the Premier League season well, scoring on opening day, and has a close relationship with Sadio Mane, who he plays with for Senegal.
If he were to theoretically sign for Liverpool, he’d arrive as our fifth choice attacker, but with three positions up top, he’d definitely get minutes – although probably in cup competitions initially.
Jota though started as a sub and is now ahead of Roberto Firmino in the pecking order, so Jurgen Klopp is flexible with his preferences if new signings hit the ground running.
