Everton would need to stump up a significant transfer bid to sign Ismaila Sarr in January, according to journalist Dean Jones.
The Lowdown: Everton linked with Sarr
With the January transfer window now close to opening, some details have emerged regarding what it could take for Everton to land the winger.
The Latest: Jones drops Sarr claim
Speaking to GIVEMESPORT, transfer insider Jones had this to say about Sarr and the possibility of Everton making a move to sign him next month.
“If they are exploring this one, I think they’ll probably be discovering that it’s going to take a massive bid to land him because Watford are trying to keep the door shut on this.
“I’m told he won’t leave in January unless it’s a really, really big bid, mainly because they still want promotion and they need him.”
The Verdict: A financial gamble
Described as a “scary” attacking player by Ben Foster, Sarr would follow in the footsteps of the likes of Richarlison and Abdoulaye Doucoure if he were to make a move from Vicarage Road to Goodison Park in the coming weeks.
Also, only one other player has delivered more crosses into the 18-yard box than the winger (8), which further showcases the attacking impact he has.
While the Watford star clearly has significant attacking talent, the financial aspect of a potential January deal is definitely something that Everton and their hierarchy will need to consider before launching a move for him.
