Liverpool is interested in signing Watford’s Ismaila Sarr for £40 million after the Senegalese international expressed his desire to leave the club.
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is allegedly interested in signing Watford’s Ismaila Sarr. According to reports, the Senegalese winger has informed the club of his desire to go. Despite having one of the most lethal front fours in the Premier League, Liverpool wants to add to their squad.
In the wake of Liverpool’s interest in Ismaila Sarr, the Watford midfielder has requested a transfer away from the club. Liverpool’s long-standing desire to recruit Watford’s Ismaila Sarr could finally be realized now that he has reportedly wanted to leave the club. Sarr is interested in heading to Anfield before the summer transfer window shuts on August 31, according to TransferMarketWeb, and Liverpool has made a £40 million approach to sign him. The signing of the Senegalese winger will be a massive boost for Liverpool’s offense, which currently includes Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino, and Diogo Jota.
One of the main reasons Liverpool is interested in bringing in reinforcements is because Xherdan Shaqiri and Divock Origi are expected to leave the club shortly. While both players have contributed significantly to Liverpool’s success in recent seasons, the Reds’ team must be improved to compete for big trophies again. Origi scored the winning goal in the 2019 Champions League final against Tottenham Hotspur to help Liverpool win.
Watford’s comeback to the Premier League is off to a good start, thanks to Ismaila Sarr.
Ismaila Sarr got off to a good start in the Premier League, forming a solid partnership with new acquisition Emmanuel Dennis and scoring the second goal in Watford’s 3-2 victory over Aston Villa. Furthermore, in 39 games for the EFL Championship, the Senegalese international scored 13 goals and four assists. Sarr’s contract with Watford, which he joined from Rennes two years ago, expires in 2024.
In the Premier League, Liverpool will face Burnley next.
While it is unclear whether Ismaila Sarr will join Liverpool before the summer transfer window ends, the Reds will concentrate on their upcoming meeting against Burnley. On Saturday, August 21, at 5:00 p.m. IST, the match will begin.
