Liverpool 'interested in Watford winger Ismaila Sarr'

Watford winger Ismaila Sarr is reportedly on the radar of Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp ahead of the possible summer transfer window.

Sarr joined Watford from Rennes for a club-record fee rising to £30m last year and has gradually adapted to Premier League football with five goals and three assists.

Two of those goals came in the Hornets' surprise 3-0 win over Liverpool in February and, according to The Mirror, the 22-year-old has caught Klopp's eye.

The report suggests that the Reds have continued to monitor the Senegal international's progress and could make a move at the end of the season.

Sarr is said to be viewed as a cheaper opportunity to Borussia Dortmund attacker Jadon Sancho, who is valued close to the £100m mark.

Striking a deal with Watford may prove difficult, however, as the clubs are said to have an easy connection dating back to Liverpool's failed move for Piotr Zielinski from their sister club Udinese in 2016.
