Leeds United: Whites eyeing up move for Ismaila Sarr

Leeds United: Whites eyeing up move for Ismaila Sarr -Leeds United News

Leeds United are ‘courting’ Watford forward Ismaila Sarr as a replacement for Raphinha, according to Foot Mercato.

The Lowdown: Sarr profiled

Sarr, labelled by Ben Foster as a “freak” of a talent with “scary” ability, has been with the Hornets since 2019.

Capable of playing anywhere across the front three, the Senegal international has scored 57 goals for club and country, 24 of which have come for Watford.

The 24-year-old, previously of Rennes, is into the final two years of his Vicarage Road contract, and it looks as if Leeds may make a move in the final weeks of the window.

The Latest: Leeds eyeing move

Foot Mercato provided a Leeds transfer update on Tuesday and were told that Sarr has been ‘courted’ by Victor Orta and Co.

They claim that Leeds are looking to replace Raphinha before the window closes, adding that PSV’s Cody Gakpo is still on their shortlist also.

Sarr apparently ‘could be tempted’ into leaving Vicarage Road.

The Verdict: Really?

Leeds appear to have filled the void left by Raphinha by signing Luis Sinisterra, so it is interesting to see these rumours regarding Sarr.

Sarr at Elland Road?

Yes, get him in!

No, we need a striker!

No, we need a striker!

He is primarily a right-winger but does have experience of playing as a centre-forward on 33 occasions. Sarr has contributed to 15 goals when occupying a central role, so perhaps his versatility is something of interest to Orta and Andrea Radrizzani.

It could well be one to watch, however, the club may well be better off looking to sign an out-and-out striker who can fill in out wide, instead of the other way around.
