Watford have broken their transfer record with the news that the Hornets have captured the signature of highly-rated Senegalese winger Ismaila Sarr from Rennes.
The deal is reported to have surpassed the previous transfer record of Watford – that of Andre Gray in in 2017 in an £18m deal.
Sarr enjoyed a breakout season in 2018-19, scoring 13 goals in all competitions from his 50 appearances – including four from nine in the Europa League.
The Senegal international could go straight into Javi Gracia’s line-up this weekend and will provide stiff competition in the forward line for the likes of Gerard Deulofeu, Andre Gray and recent arrival Danny Welbeck.
