Liverpool are battling Manchester United for the signing of Senegal star Ismaila Sarr, according to a report.

The winger – who plays his club football at Ligue 1 side Rennes – drew compliments after his exploits at the 2018 World Cup in Russia.

Now, an exclusive from The Sun claims that the 20-year-old has attracted interest from Arsenal, Barcelona, Juventus, Manchester United, Chelsea and Liverpool.

Some of the aforementioned clubs have already sent scouts to watch Sarr.

“He is very fast with an excellent technique,” Thierno Seydi – the player’s agent – told SunSport.

“He has the same qualities as Ousmane Dembele of Barcelona. They are similar players.

“I have received many calls from English and German clubs and maybe even one from Italy. Many agents from the UK have called me proposing to work with them and Ismaila to get him to the Premier League. One Italian agent asked to speak with Juventus. The price will be around €50-60m (£44m-£53m).”
