Leeds: Whites close to Ismaila Sarr agreement

Leeds: Whites close to Ismaila Sarr agreement -Leeds United News

Leeds United ‘almost’ have an agreement with Watford forward Ismaila Sarr, according to journalist Santi Aouna.

The Lowdown: Gnonto linked with Leeds

The Whites appear to be on the hunt for a new forward before the September 1 deadline, with FC Zurich’s Wilfried Gnonto heavily linked with a move to Elland Road.

Reports have suggested that Leeds want to finalise a deal for the 18-year-old before August 25 and have tabled a €5m (£4.2m) offer for the Italy international.

He doesn’t appear to be the only forward on whom the club are working, though, with a significant update emerging on Sarr.

The Latest: Sarr agreement

According to Aouna, Leeds are ‘strongly interested’ in the Senegal forward and ‘almost’ have a ‘salary agreement with the player’.

The journalist adds that Sarr’s arrival is ‘conditional on a departure’, with Crystal Palace also interested in the forward, who was labelled a “freak” of a talent with “scary” ability by former team-mate Ben Foster and a “top player” by his one-time Hornets boss Xisco Munoz.

The Verdict: Unlikely?

Even though this is a relatively key update on Sarr, it appears as if Leeds would only move for the Senegal international if a current Whites player departs, making a move seem unlikely.

One wide forward who has been linked with an exit is Jack Harrison, although Andrea Radrizzani has ruled out a move away for the 26-year-old and the player has begun the season in fine form.

Where will Leeds finish this season?

Hopefully, a centre-forward like Gnonto will arrive over the coming weeks, with Jesse Marsch relatively short in that department, especially after recent injury scares to Patrick Bamford and Joe Gelhardt.
