Liverpool reportedly have strong interest in Ismaila Sarr

Liverpool are reportedly very interested in Ismaila Sarr and, after they almost signed him in January 2020, will he ever get his Anfield move?

The Watford star is the man responsible for ending Liverpool’s unbeaten run in the 2019/20 Premier League winning season, as the Hornets defeated the Reds 3-0 in the biggest shock of the campaign.

They got relegated that season but are now back in England’s top division, and Sarr is once again showing why he is a highly sought after forward, with five goals to date.

He has scored just two less than Sadio Mane, his friend from the Senegal side that is one to watch at AFCON.

He scored in the 4-1 win over Manchester United that effectively got Ole Gunnar Solskjaer sacked as manager and any player that has helped get a United coach fired is more than welcome at Anfield.

His pace, strength and goal-hungry nature make him the perfect target for Klopp, and I can imagine he would be an absolute menace for defenders to deal with when being counter-pressed.

According to Calciomercato, ‘there is strong interest from Liverpool’ with the Italian outlet making specific mention of his contract’s expiry in 2024 and this is notable because Watford will be increasingly keen to cash in.

The Senegal international was reportedly very close to joining the Reds in January 2020 but his agent said the Reds refused to pay the €40million (£33.6m) that was demanded.

His agent, Thierno Seydi, told Pan African Football: “With Liverpool, we were at the stage of signing the contract to bind the Reds to Ismaila Sarr.

“Everything was set, the monthly salary and the length of the lease. I even asked Sadio Mane to find him an apartment.

“But in the end, the English club could not put €40 million on the table to finalise this case.”
