Despite showing initial sluggishness towards their transfers strategy, Liverpool have now rolled on the pace of signing players. The club recently confirmed the signings of Diogo Jota and Thiago Alcantara. And if the latest reports are to be believed, they are now surging forward to sign a winger. As the famous proverb goes, “If you can’t beat them, buy them.”
One would do well to remember Ismaila Sarr’s performance in Watford’s 3-1 win over Liverpool. The winger was exceptionally fast, time and beating Robertson and Van Dijk to move into central areas and taking frequent shots on goal.
It is probably this directness that has attracted the Anfield club to make a move for the former Rennes footballer. Sarr has so far played 30 games and scored 6 goals and 4 assists in his debut season with Watford.
However, a recent move for forward Jota raises doubts over whether Sarr would be able to command a starting place in the Liverpool team. Although there are many clubs who are chasing the Senegal winger, at 22 years old he would be targeting more game time at any club that he moves to. Especially where he can command more game time, possibly a club like Manchester United or Aston Villa – who are the teams named to be linked to him.
As far as the dealing specifics go, Liverpool are ready to pay Watford anywhere between 35 and 40 million Euros for his signing. This is according to the source France Football. However, more trusted information mouthpieces such as Paul Joyce, Melissa Reddy and Fabrizio Romano are yet to confirm this particular transfer rumour. Regardless, this would be an impressive signing from Liverpool – who will add depth to their potent attacking force.
