After completing the signing of Thiago Alcantara and Diogo Jota, Liverpool is still keen to sign Watford’s Ismaila Sarr. They reportedly agreed on a contract worth 36m for the winger. The reds are also interested in Barca’s Ousmane Dembele. They want him on a loan but Barcelona has disagreed, insisting it will be a complete transfer.
According to France Football, Ismaila Sarr agents have met with the Liverpool board and a deal has been agreed with his club that could reach £36m.
The contract also worth £120,000 a week but terms have not been agreed. Aside from Liverpool, Manchester United and Leicester are also interested in the Watford star. Reports also said that Aston Villa has joined the race. And with the possibility of a first-team shirt, he could move to Villa Park.
Liverpool has been practicing a quiet transfer during this summer after spending £11.75million to sign Konstantinos Tsimikas from Olympiacos. The reds have also secured Diogo Jota from Wolves and reports say they are more to come after.
Sarr was part of the squad that broke Liverpool’s unbeaten run last season at Vicarage Road in February. He scored two goals against the reds in the match that ended 3-0 in favor of Watford. Earlier this summer, Sarr made it clear that he would be available to join Liverpool where he could team up with Sadio Mane.
Meanwhile, the interest over Barca’s Dembele is still in the light with the asking for a loan. But the Catalans are only ready for a complete transfer for the french international winger. The deal is unlikely not to be done. Jurgen Klopp is conscious of setting competition for Liverpool’s forward, Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino, and Mo Salah.
Diogo Jota will be a source of competition in front and Dembele is another player that can be of quality for the reds. Liverpool began their season with high fashion after beating Leed United 4-3. They also secured a 2-0 win against Chelsea at Stamford bridge.
