Liverpool target Ismaila Sarr sends transfer message amid Man Utd speculation

Liverpool transfer target Ismaila Sarr has said he "would love to play" for the Reds as he admitted he has had offers to leave Watford.

Jurgen Klopp's Reds are believed to lead the chase for Sarr, while Manchester United have also been linked with the 22-year-old as they seek alternatives to Jadon Sancho.

Watford are believed to want more than £40million for their star winger, who can play on either flank as well as up front.

The Senegal international has outlined his admiration for Liverpool – but he also warned he would consider other suitors as he admitted he has "yet to make a choice" about his future following the Hornets' relegation from the Premier League.

"Liverpool are a really great team – everyone would love to play there," Sarr told Les Echos in his homeland, in an interview reported by Metro.

"They won the Premier League this year and the Champions League last year.

"But also there are great teams in the English league.

"Frankly, I have yet to make a choice. If that were to happen, I just wish they were a good team. At the moment, there are only guesses."

Liverpool star Sadio Mane has referred to compatriot Sarr as his "little brother" in the past, and the Reds are well aware of the winger's capabilities after he scored twice to inflict their first Premier League defeat of the season in February.

Crystal Palace and Wolves are also said to be keeping tabs on Sarr, who moved to Vicarage Road from Rennes for £30m last summer.

Sarr admitted he was receiving plenty of enquiries from agents about his future plans – but insisted that until something concrete came his way he would remain a Watford player.

"I still have years of contract with Watford, another four years," he said. "If Watford want me to stay, I’ll play in the Championship – my departure also depends on them.

"I’m at the same level of information as everyone else about these transfer rumours.

"Every day, like everyone else, I receive information like what I’m going to play for Liverpool, Manchester United etc.

"But really, for the moment, we have not yet discussed it internally.

"I continue my work and the rest, my agent and my team will take care of it. Because whatever happens, you need the backing of the club."
