Liverpool have reportedly made contact with Watford over a move for £40 million-rated Ismaila Sarr but a deal is a long way from being completed, with Manchester United also keen.
According to TEAMtalk, the Hornets are open to selling the 22-year-old if their asking price of around £40 million is met.
The report claims that Liverpool have been keen on Sarr for a while and contact between the clubs over at a formative stage, while Premier League rivals United are interested but yet to make contact.
So, would the Senegal international be a good signing for Jurgen Klopp’s side? And is he worth the £40 million asking price?
We asked our FLW writers for their thoughts…
Good signing, yes. Worth £40 million, I don’t think so.
In all honesty, we’re not going to be looking at a deal that is £40 million upfront I don’t think, especially in this current market.
Liverpool have just done a deal for Thiago for half that price, you’re not telling me they won’t think of something a bit shrewder here!
Sarr is a player with obvious quality and potential and I think at Liverpool he’d be the ideal man to push their current front three whilst I can see a £25 million deal initially plus add-ons.
