Agent hints at ‘planned’ transfer for Prem star amid Liverpool links



A ‘plan’ is in place for Watford attacker Ismaila Sarr to leave the club this summer amid reports linking him with the likes of Liverpool and Man Utd.

The Premier League club splashed out around £30m to sign the Senegal international from Rennes in 2019.

Sarr was a standout player for Watford during his debut season as they were relegated down to the Championship. Liverpool and Man Utd were linked with him last year. 

Every Premier League club’s worst signing of the season

The 24-year-old ended up staying with Watford in the Championship. He was involved in 17 goals as they were promoted back up to the Premier League.

He has struggled with injuries this term but he has been impressive when he’s been fit enough to play a part.

The Hornets are battling to stay up as they currently sit 18th in the table. Sarr’s contract is due to expire in 2024.

His agent – Thierno Seydi – has suggested that Sarr will have “chances to leave” Watford this summer:

“The only evidence is that I think he has chances to leave regardless of what happens between now and the end of the season with Watford. That’s how it’s planned with those in charge,” Seydi told Afrique Sports.

“Last year, or a year and a half ago, when the team had gone down to the Championship, he was meant to go, and I was convinced he would.

“Until the last minute, it was almost guaranteed he would leave, but unfortunately it didn’t get done.

“He took it on the chin and played in the Championship. He told me it was maybe the step he needed and he had a great season after that. Watford went back up.

“He’s been in good form, but the injury has stopped him in his tracks. He’s going to come back soon and try to finish the season like a cannonball. It’s clear there are chances he leaves this year from Watford.”

Elsewhere, David James has claimed that Man Utd forward Marcus Rashford would be a “valuable asset to Liverpool”:

“I just think he’s got all the attributes to be a false-nine, through-the-middle player, rather than being stuck out wide. Therefore, again, when you look at the likes of Liverpool’s fluidity, he could actually play wide, and in the middle, and essentially do anything he wants to do if he was playing in that Liverpool side.

“I don’t think he’s afforded that with Manchester United with their reliance on the likes of [Cristiano] Ronaldo going down the middle. In a theoretical world, if you took the rivalry out of the equation, I would snap him up straight away. I think he could be a valuable asset to Liverpool.”
