Leeds: Whites keen on Ismaila Sarr

Leeds: Whites keen on Ismaila Sarr -Leeds United News

Leeds United are still ‘keen’ on signing Watford forward Ismaila Sarr, according to journalist Jacque Talbot.

The Lowdown: Sarr links

The Whites have been heavily linked with Sarr over the past five days, with reports even claiming that a transfer was close to being finalised.

As we know, a deal is yet to materialise, with Phil Hay saying those rumours were wide of the mark.

Speculation of a move has continued, however, with Talbot sharing what he knows about the Senegal international, who shares the same agent as summer signing Brenden Aaronson.

The Latest: Talbot’s post

Talbot took to Twitter on Friday afternoon to provide an update on Sarr’s future.

He said he’s heard that a move to Newcastle is ‘very unlikely’ at this stage before adding that Leeds are ‘keen’.

The Verdict: Centre-forward needed

If Leeds needed a wide forward, then Sarr, who Ben Foster labelled ‘phenomenal’, could be the perfect man due to his versatility and previous Premier League experience.

Happy with Orta's business so far?

Yes, 100%

However, Jesse Marsch seems to need a new striker, especially following the 2-2 draw with Southampton on Saturday. Joe Gelhardt didn’t make the trip due to a minor issue and Patrick Bamford had to be withdrawn through injury once again, this time with an abductor problem, leaving Marsch with limited options.

Therefore, a new centre-forward appears to be more important than another wide forward, so hopefully, Andrea Radrizzani and Victor Orta can get one in before the deadline.
