Liverpool remain interested in signing long-time target Ismaila Sarr in the summer transfer window, according to a latest transfer rumour.
The Lowdown: Sarr linked in the past
The Senegalese forward famously scored twice for Watford against the Reds back in 2019/20, ending their hopes of going unbeaten for a whole Premier League season.
Sarr remains at the Hornets currently but he hasn’t always been a regular this season due to injuries, making 15 league starts and scoring five goals in that time.
Liverpool have been linked with a move for the winger numerous times in the past and it appears as though their interest isn’t going away.
The Latest: New rumour emerges
He is also ‘a favourite’ of AC Milan’s but Liverpool are providing ‘competition’ for his signature, ahead of a likely exit at the end of the season.
The Verdict: Possible replacement for superstar
Liverpool are in a situation where they have five superb attacking options currently, so it is hard to imagine Jurgen Klopp needing any reinforcements in that area.
That being said, there is a chance that one of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane or Roberto Firmino could leave this summer, which would then open up a space in the squad.
If so, Sarr would be an exciting option to come in, having scored nine goals in 39 caps for Senegal and been hailed as ‘outstanding’ by Garth Crooks, bringing the same pace and directness out wide as his mentor Mane.
