Leeds: Whites continue to be linked with Ismaila Sarr

Leeds: Whites continue to be linked with Ismaila Sarr -Leeds United News

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.

The 24-year-old first emerged on the radar at the beginning of the month, with reports last week even suggesting an agreement was close with the Senegal international.

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.

Sarr has played central in the past but is primarily a winger, and with Patrick Bamford and Joe Gelhardt’s recent injury issues, a recognised striker could be of more use.
