Newcastle United can form deadly duo by signing Ismaila Sarr

Newcastle United managed to salvagee what started out as a horrendous Premier League campaign by eventually finishing 11th in the table.

However, with just 44 goals scored, Crystal Palace, Brentford and Aston Villa all ended up finding the net more often despite finishing below the Magpies.

Should Newcastle sign Ismaila Sarr this summer?





One reason for this could be down to Newcastle having to make do without Callum Wilson in the team for a long period due to injury issues. Despite playing just 18 league games, the Englishman still netted eight goals, making him the Toon’s top scorer for 2021/22.

Therefore, it would be safe to assume that, had the striker been fit for the entire campaign, he would have made Newcastle a deadlier team and given them more goals by the end of the season.

Now that their rollercoaster campaign has come to a positive end for the club, their focus will undeniably be on the summer transfer window and potentially bringing in some new faces to freshen up Eddie Howe’s squad.

One man who has been linked with a move to St James’ Park and who could form a deadly duo with Wilson at the top of the pitch is Watford winger Ismaila Sarr.

How many 2021/22 Premier League goals did Newcastle score?

After scoring 18 goals and providing 16 assists in 77 appearances for Rennes, the winger joined the Hornets back in the summer of 2019 for a fee of £40m. Since then, the 24-year-old has found the net 24 times and supplied 18 assists in 92 appearances for the Hertfordshire club.

Labelled by Ben Foster as a “freak” of a talent in terms of the “scary” ability that he has on the pitch, Sarr has racked up 167 shots at goal and 289 crosses throughout his three seasons at Vicarage Road.

This highlights the clear attacking ability that he has and why he would be an absolute danger for Newcastle, especially if he has Wilson to play alongside and provide with goalscoring opportunities.

Watford’s relegation could well give the Toon an edge when it comes to being able to convince the player to return to the Premier League and be their next attacking star.
