Ismaila Sarr: Senegal young forward on his way out of Watford

Ismaila Sarr: Senegal young forward on his way out of Watford

Senegal forward Ismaila Sarr could be on his out from Watford with Liverpool and Crystal Palace all desperate to sign him.

Sarr who was impressive for the hornets during the 2019/20 Premier League is valued at £40 million by Watford who suffered relegation after a 5 year stay.

Liverpool are looking to continue their dominance in English football by adding to their front three of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino.

Sarr scored a brace against the Reds in a 3-0 win at Vicarage Road to break their unbeaten run.

Crystal Palace are also looking to rope in the 22-year-old Senegalese starlet.

According to Mail Online, the Eagles have slapped an £8 million price tag on forward Christian Benteke as they aim to raise funds in a bid to lure Sarr away from the Watford.

Sarr moved to Vicarage Road from Stade Rennais in August last year and scored six goals in 30 appearances for the club in his debut season.

Sarr could be brought in by Palace as a direct replacement for Wilfried Zaha who continues to be linked with a move away from the South London club.
