Everton need to pay ‘massive’ fee to sign Ismaila Sarr in January

Everton need to pay ‘massive’ fee to sign Ismaila Sarr in January -Everton News

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

Earlier this month, it was reported that the Toffees are interested in signing the £40k-per-week Senegal winger.

Prior to making four appearances for his country in the World Cup, the 24-year-old had scored six goals and delivered three assists in 18 Championship appearances with Watford this season.

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.

As well as his goals and assists in the second division, only Joao Pedro (39) has had more shots at goal than the winger (38) at his current club.

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.
