Liverpool Keeping Tabs On Premier League Attacker, Will They Finally Sign Him?

In anticipation of the departure of one of their top players in the summer of 2019, Liverpool is allegedly in the market for Ismaila Sarr.

Apparently, Liverpool is keeping an eye on Ismaila Sarr, according to Fichajes. Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino are the club’s top three. The Watford winger has been touted as a possible replacement for one of the group’s key players. He will be a backup in the initial season, with him being slowly inculcated into the team eventually.

According to reports, Liverpool is considering selling at least one of the aforementioned attackers, with Mohamed Salah, in particular, facing an unclear future at the club. The Egyptian international’s current contract with Liverpool ends in 2023, and the club has so far been unable to get him a new agreement.

Former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher has previously pushed the club to extend Salah’s current deal. However, nothing has come to fruition, with Liverpool reportedly interested in signing Sarr instead.

The 23-year-old winger has been a part of the Watford squad since the start of the 2019 season. He has had tremendous success with the Hornets, which has attracted a lot of attention.

As a rookie in the Premier League, Sarr had an immediate impact. He has a total tally of 11 goals and has helped Watford avoid relegation previously. However, Sarr’s efforts were not enough to save the Hornets from slipping into the Championship eventually.

Samir Sarr ramped improved his game in the Championship, scoring 13 goals and assisting on a further 10 goals. It played a crucial role in the club’s re-admission to the Premier League. Moreover, it seems that the Senegalese striker has been able to carry over his impressive form from the Championship into the Premier League, having scored four goals in the first seven games of the season.

In addition, his achievements have not gone unnoticed, with Liverpool reportedly interested in signing him to further bolster their attacking ranks in the next season. It is expected that Sarr’s Premier League experience, as well as his quickness, trickery and direct style of play, would fit in well with Jurgen Klopp’s tactical philosophy.

However, with his current deal at Watford ending in 2024, it is anticipated that the Senegalese international would command a high transfer fee. It is possible that Liverpool may be forced to seek elsewhere, given the fact that the club is experiencing financial difficulties as a result of the coronavirus epidemic.

They are fortunate in that there is no scarcity of choices. For example, Karim Adeyemi of Red Bull Salzburg, who is on the rise, might be a viable alternative for Sarr next summer, with the German likely to be much less expensive than the Egyptian. The cheapest estimate for his transfer fee is €35 million, which would make him a bargain for Liverpool, according to recent media sources.
