Liverpool fans in the Transfer Tavern are loving the 2018 World Cup and are over the moon with the developments coming from Melwood.
Our regulars are delighted to see Jordan Henderson and Trent Alexander-Arnold reach the last 16 of the competition with England, but are more concerned with the latest news coming from Merseyside. Star of the season Mohamed Salah faced an early exit from the World Cup but has penned a five-year-deal with the club which contains no release clause.
The news is music to the ears of the Anfield faithful who have watched their best players leave season after season. With Salah and Roberto Firmino penning new deals, they can be optimistic for the future. Sadio Mane is also expected to put pen to paper on a new long-term contract in the coming days.
Jurgen Klopp still needs cover for Liverpool’s famous three with Daniel Sturridge and Danny Ings set to leave. One man who could solve his problem is Rennes winger – Ismaila Sarr. The youngster featured alongside Mane at the World Cup for Senegal and impressed despite his country’s group stage exit.
Valued at £12.6m by Transfermarkt, Sarr is expected to follow in the footsteps of Ousmane Dembele and join a top European side after impressing in Ligue 1. The 20-year-old made 24 appearances for his team, scoring five goals and registering three assists. Sarr is extremely talented and would provide cover at both right and left wing.
Under Klopp’s tutelage, he could develop into a Premier League star.
