West Ham United manager David Moyes may have been handed a boost as the club pursue Watford forward Ismaila Sarr, according to a new report.
The Lowdown: Hammers on the hunt…
Andriy Yarmolenko, Ryan Fredericks, David Martin and the retired Mark Noble will not be at Rush Green for the 2022/23 Premier League campaign, with Moyes setting his sights on potential replacements.
The Latest: West Ham ‘most likely’ to sign Sarr…
According to the newspaper’s information, West Ham are the ‘most likely destination’ for the Watford attacker, who ‘could be on his way to the London Stadium’ if the right offer arrives.
It is believed that the east Londoners, and by extension club owners GSB, are lining up a move for the 24-year-old as his club look for around £25m to green-light a sale.
The Verdict: Get it done?
When handed the opportunity, Sarr can prove to be a real menace and a handful when at his very best.
According to WhoScored, over his 22 top-flight starts last season, the Senegal international averaged Watford’s joint-highest number of shots at goal per 90, whilst also attracting the most fouls.
Should West Ham move for Ismaila Sarr?
Transfer journalist Dean Jones has said that Newcastle view Sarr as a ‘game-changer‘ of a player, with former England international Ben Foster also calling the 24-year-old ‘frightening‘ to play against.
For £25m, he may well be a credible option for Moyes and West Ham.
