Many Crystal Palace fans are reacting to the latest transfer news surrounding Championship winger Ismaila Sarr.
Crystal Palace were linked with the winger throughout the summer transfer window and it seems a January swoop is now on the radar – Sarr had not just attracted attention from the Eagles, but also from Liverpool as well.
The Senegalese attacker signed for Watford in August 2019, and impressed as he made 28 Premier League appearances last season. He managed five goals and four assists, per WhoScored, and also managed 1.6 shots and 1.7 successful dribbles per game.
To hit the ground running in England at such a young age makes him look like a special player and suggests that he has a lot of potential. Therefore, it could be a huge lift for Roy Hodgson to get a deal over the line.
Liverpool superstar Sadio Mane hailed Sarr when the youngster signed for Watford, saying: “I’m really happy for him and he made the right choice to come to Watford. For sure I think he will be great.”
Here is how Palace fans reacted to the news:
“Need this to happen. 4-4-2 Eze Zaha Benteke sarr”
“4 goals and 2 assists in 17 championship matches. Just what we need another winger, bet he can’t cross a ball either! Need a striker, rather have Diego Costa on a free for a season!”
“Sarr is a great player. We’re not gonna sign him though”
“Please please please please.”
“Please for the love of god get this over the line!”
“If this could be the only signing Palace make this window I would be very satisfied”
