Liverpool are reportedly eyeing up a potential move for Watford’s Ismaila Sarr this summer.
According to The Mirror (relayed via @AnfieldEdition), the Senegalese winger is on the radar of the Premier League champions. However, a failed moved for Piotr Zielinski from Udinese back in 2016 could resurface and scupper any movement due to bad blood between Liverpool and the Pozzo family, who own both the Italian club and Watford (via Liverpool.com).

Sarr has been in good form for the struggling Hornets this season, tallying five goals and five assists in the league so far (via Transfermarkt). He is the club’s second top scorer for this term with six goals overall, behind only Troy Deeney with nine (according to BBC Sport).
No transfer fee has been announced but the 22-year-old’s current Transfermarkt value is £22 million, which could reflect in an asking price should Watford be relegated. The Hornets are currently 17th in the league table, outside of the drop-zone by just three points.
Two Liverpool fans think the Reds should take advantage of Watford’s difficult situation, with one tweeting ‘we have to get him’ and the other telling the club ‘don’t think twice’.

Great potential here, he’ll need work to become competition for our first team just like Mane, Robbo, Fab etc
