Crystal Palace set to make move for Watford ace on one condition



Crystal Palace will look to sign Watford forward Ismaila Sarr if the price is right this month, according to Alan Nixon.

Sarr has been a key player for Watford this season, as the Hornets look to make an immediate return to the Premier League after being relegated last season.

The 22-year-old has scored four goals and chipped in with five assists in the Championship, and is easily one of the most dangerous attacking players in the division.

Sarr attracted interest from the likes of Manchester United and Liverpool over the course of the summer, but Watford pulled off a coup in keeping him at Vicarage Road.

After an impressive start to this season, it remains to be seen whether interest from those two clubs surfaces once again with the January window now open.

According to Nixon, one side who will look to make a move for Sarr are Crystal Palace, but only if the price is right.

Sarr was brought in by Watford from Rennes last summer, arriving for a reported club-record fee of £40million on a five-year deal.

The Verdict

Sarr has been excellent for Watford this season, and I was really surprised to see him stay at the club amid interest in the summer.

He’d be another exciting player for Palace, who already have the likes of Ebere Eze and Wilfried Zaha to choose from in their attacking armory.

Sarr would cost a lot, you would imagine, so I can see that being a stumbling block.
