Liverpool have reignited their interest in signing Watford winger Ismaila Sarr to bolster Jurgen Klopp’s attack in January, while Thursday’s Euro Paper Talk also claims that Tottenham can land a centre-back target for a bargain £17million.
KLOPP SWITCHES FOCUS BACK TO WATFORD WINGER
Jurgen Klopp’s men were strongly linked with the 23-year-old back in the summer of 2020, but nothing came to fruition.
Calciomercato claims that the Merseyside outfit are keen on landing Sarr to offset the loss of Mo Salah and Sadio Mane to the African Nations Cup in January. With that being the case any potential deal is expected to be done in early January.
The Senegal star is currently valued at €27million (£22.7m). However, the fact that he remains under contract until 2024 almost certainly means that the Vicarage Road outfit will demand more for arguably their top player.
Sarr has scored 24 goals and added 16 assists in 82 appearances for the club. This season he has notched four times in 11 Premier League games for a Watford side currently 16th in the table on 13 points.
The attacker is not yet considered the finished product. Despite that Klopp still wants Sarr as part of his front-three rotation.
The winger could also be a devastating option off the bench, when the regular trio of Salah, Mane and Roberto Firmino all start.
