Watford have reportedly set an asking price of £40m for the services of formerly Liverpool-linked attacker, Ismaila Sarr, ahead of the summer window.
This update comes courtesy of Jacque Talbot for Football Transfers, commenting on the 24-year-old allegedly being offered out to in-form Premier League outfit Newcastle United.
The Merseysiders are understood to be keeping an eye out for a further option to bolster the forward line once the season draws to a close.
Even with two years set to be remaining on the Senegalese international’s contract come the summer, £40m for a potentially relegated outfit’s player seems somewhat steep.
It should be noted that it’s far from prohibitive, of course, with us having recently acquired Luis Diaz for £2.5m less than the aforementioned figure.
Favouring the right-wing, Sarr would also provide some much-needed competition in Mo Salah’s position, which would effectively ensure that we have all the depth we require across the board up top.
