Sky Sports have made an on-air transfer claim involving Leeds United and Watford forward Ismaila Sarr.
The Lowdown: Sarr links
Sarr, labelled a “freak” of a talent with “scary” ability by former team-mate Ben Foster, has been linked with an Elland Road move for a number of weeks.
Rumours have since cooled after Phil Hay dismissed a potential transfer being close, but Sarr’s name has popped up in conversation once again when it comes to any late business from Leeds.
The Latest: Sky Sports claim
Sky Sports reporter Kaveh Solhekol said this on Wednesday’s club by club round-up regarding Leeds and Sarr.
“Leeds United looking for a forward and they continue to be linked with a move for Watford’s Ismaila Sarr.”
The Verdict: Interesting…
The rumours regarding Sarr seemed to have eased off in recent days, so it is interesting that Sky Sports have name-checked the Whites and Sarr again.
Where will Leeds finish this season?
Jesse Marsch may well be open to the possibility of bringing Sarr to Yorkshire, however, the wiser move may be to bring in a player who is more naturally suited to a central attacking role.
