West Ham United supporters may have been handed a significant update as the east Londoners continue their push to sign Watford winger Ismaila Sarr.
The Lowdown: West Ham in transfer talks…
As backed by reliable sources, West Ham have held talks over the Senegal international for David Moyes after they completed their first major summer addition in Nayef Aguerd from Rennes.
The Latest: West Ham ‘prepared to pay’ Sarr price…
There has now been a significant update regarding West Ham’s pursuit of Sarr.
He explained (via Twitter): “I understand that West Ham are prepared to pay #Watford’s asking price (£28m) and personal terms won’t be a problem.”
The Verdict: Promising…
West Ham supporters may well be hopeful this claim eventually comes to fruition.
There is little denying that Sarr has the ability to seriously bolster Moyes’ forward line, with former England goalkeeper Ben Foster calling the African star (and former Watford team-mate) ‘scary’.
Which forward do West Ham need to sign?
As per WhoScored, when fit and available last season, the 24-year-old was one of the Hornets’ biggest key threats in the final third, averaging the joint-most attempts at goal per 90 in their squad (1.8). Sarr also proved to be a real handful for opponents as none of his team-mates attracted more fouls per game than his 2.1.
For around £28m, West Ham could well secure a real asset in the Senegal winger.
