Liverpool target Ismaila Sarr is a perfect fit for Jurgen Klopp

Liverpool have made just one dip into the transfer market ahead of the new campaign, which starts this weekend, but one mooted target is a name that simply won’t go away…

What’s the word?

According to the ECHO’s Paul Gorst, the Premier League title holders have relegated Watford sensation Ismaila Sarr “under consideration” ahead of a potential switch to Anfield.

Is £40m for Ismaila Sarr good business for Liverpool?

Yes, get him in!

Yes, get him in!

No way, next!

No way, next!

It’s not the first time the Hornets winger has been linked with a move to the Reds after Alan Nixon at The Sun claimed they were prepared to meet the £40m asking price just over a week ago.

He believes Sarr is one of their top priorities given his ability to also play through the middle and that he would be patient over a spot in the starting XI.

Perfect fit

It’s no surprise to see Klopp keen on the Senegalese international after he haunted him back in February. The 22-year-old condemned Liverpool to their first league defeat of the season and he was integral to it.

Per SofaScore, Sarr not only bagged a brace and assisted another in the 3-0 victory, but also recorded six shots, two dribbles and one key pass. Andy Robertson had a torrid time having won just one duel as well as losing possession 22 times.

In addition to that, the Watford speedster would undoubtedly be a perfect fit for Klopp’s system given his comparisons to both Sadio Mane and Ousmane Dembele, who the German had at Borussia Dortmund.

WHO IS THE PLAYER?

Soon-to-be ex-teammate Abdoulaye Doucoure believes Sarr is a “Champions League player” as he “has exceptional qualities, [is] not just quick, he’s incredible at finishing, he can find space, keep the ball and I hope he’ll go very far.”

With Harry Wilson reportedly on the chopping block and the likes of Xherdan Shaqiri and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain pretty average alternative options, it would make a ton of sense to clinch the tricky winger.

£40m is not much more than what they paid for Mane; look how that turned out.
