The Lowdown: Villa move falls through
The Eagles have been linked with a move for Sarr in recent weeks but looked set to lose out to Aston Villa.
However, the Midlands side pulled out of a transfer at the beginning of the week, and it appears as if a move to Selhurst Park could still be on the cards.
The Latest: O’Rourke’s comments
O’Rourke was talking to The Transfer Tavern regarding Sarr following the move to Villa Park collapsing.
He stated that there’s a ‘real possibility’ Palace could make their move for the forward and should know the figures involved over a potential transfer.
“There’s a real possibility that Palace could move for Sarr. They do like to the Senegal international and they were reportedly leading the race for him before Aston Villa did agree that fee with Watford before the move fell down.
“Palace know what the figures are probably if they are to try to get Sarr out of Watford.”
Sarr at Crystal Palace?
Yes, get him in!
No, not needed!
The Verdict: Sign
Ben Foster has raved over the African superstar, calling him ‘frightening’ and ‘phenomenal’. He already has Premier League experience, contributing to 18 goals in 50 games, and will be able to provide cover in other areas which could come in handy as the season progresses.
It seems as if Palace may have to match a £25m fee Villa agreed with Watford last weekend, though, so Steve Parish and Dougie Freedman will need to make a decision soon.
