Plenty of Aston Villa fans have been reacting to transfer comments from former midfielder Lee Hendrie, who tipped the club to move for Watford winger Ismaila Sarr this summer.
The 23-year-old has starred for the Hornets this season in the Championship, scoring 10 goals and registering 10 assists in the second-tier.
Who has been your Villa player of the season?
“I think he’s a fabulous player, I really do. He’s a young man still learning his trade, very raw. I was a bit disappointed with him this season, at the start of the season.
“I felt that maybe he had possibly sulked at the situation that he wasn’t able to go to Liverpool or actually be back playing in the Premier League and he had to stay at Watford. And it took some time for the penny to drop and he is now in great form, scoring goals, creating.
“Yes, he’s a player that certainly brings that element of attack and forward threat. He’d certainly fit the bill for Dean Smith’s side because that’s the sort of formation he plays with, a sort of three with two wide men. So, yeah, he’d be a great addition to the football club.”
Villa fans react
@AVFC_News shared the story to Hendrie’s comments on social media on Tuesday morning, asking fans if they would like to see Sarr at Villa Park.
This is what they had to say in reply, with many for a potential summer swoop for the winger who Sadio Mane labelled ‘rapid’.
“Yes would be a great signing for us.”
“YES! YES! YES!”
“I wanted him at the start of this season”
“Yes. Good player. Will be hard to get particularly if they come back up.”
“Yes if he is available for a reasonable price and he wants to come to AV.”
“Ismaila Sarr, Michael Olise and Rico Henry are three players I would be happy with for starters. Desperately need a strong midfield enforcer too.”
