Everton were linked with plenty of players over the summer, with Frank Lampard desperate to stamp his mark on a side that were beaten and bruised throughout a testing season.
With the inevitable sale of Richarlison, the Toffees earned a much-needed £60m cash injection to reinvest.
A winger was a must, and in Dwight McNeil, they secured a solid if unspectacular option, perhaps freeing up the money used to buy Amadou Onana.
However, with how Everton have started the season, perhaps they should have invested more heavily in a reliable source of goals from out wide.
Especially if he were to have replaced Anthony Gordon, who despite his two goals, has largely disappointed so far this campaign.
Gordon is actually yet to have an outstanding goal-scoring season, whereas Sarr has already lit the Championship up previously. If he had joined and brought even a fraction of the ability that led him to 13 goals and ten assists in the 2020/21 season, he would have surely been a success.
Also, Lampard would have benefitted from a proper wide man with pace and power far greater than any of their current wide men.
Journalist Rob Blanchette actually thought the winger would be a good buy for Manchester United, citing him as “young, hungry and electric.”
