Watford demand club-record fee from Liverpool for winger

Watford have told Liverpool they must stump up at least £40m to take Ismaila Sarr to Anfield this summer, according to reports.

Last week the  claimed that the Reds were one of a number of clubs keen on the 22-year-old, while they added that Sarr’s respect for Liverpool forward Sadio Mane could prove to be a big lure.

“Mane is not only a Senegal team-mate of mine but he is my inspiration and idol,” Sarr said previously.



“It will be perfect for me to play against him again. For me he is the best player in the world. For sure, the best African player in Europe.

“He’s our national team leader but he’s also a nice guy and I love him.”

And now the claims that the Hornets ‘are ready to demand a club-record fee of over £40million for’ Sarr with Liverpool one of the main interested parties.

The Senegal international has been scouted by clubs from Spain and Germany, while Crystal Palace and Wolves are also credited with interest.

Watford will not let Sarr go on the cheap this summer and they ‘will demand a fee in excess of the record £40m Everton paid for Richarlison in 2018’.

The Premier League side forked out a sizeable £30m to bring Sarr to England from French club Rennes last summer and his performances this season have only increased his value.

With four years left on his contract at Vicarage Road, the Hornets are in a good position to negotiate a high sum despite relegation from the Premier League.

‘Liverpool are emerging as frontrunners to sign Sarr’ with the winger fitting ‘the profile of player Jurgen Klopp is after’ this summer.

The Evening Standard adds that Sarr ‘would be keen on a move to Liverpool’ with a transfer to Anfield proving ‘particularly attractive given it would allow him to play alongside his hero’, .

One stumbling block remains as Liverpool close in on Thiago

Bayern Munich midfielder Thiago is keen to join Liverpool after holding talks with Jurgen Klopp, according to journalist Fabrizio Romano.

Thiago has been heavily linked with a €35m move to the Reds recently. The midfielder is unsettled at Bayern Munich, and could be one of the few missing pieces to be added to Liverpool’s title winning squad.

While Liverpool are yet to meet Bayern’s asking price, they have reportedly managed to convince the player. With his contract in Munich up next year, Thiago is ready to move on.



Spanish newspaper Mundo Deportivo claimed ten days ago that Thiago is and Romano insists the player is keen.

“Jurgen Klopp wants the player and Thiago wants to play for Liverpool,” Romano said on the podcast. “Thiago and Klopp have been in talks for weeks, he wants to join Liverpool.”

However, the one stumbling block that still remains is the price with the Reds keen for Bayern to lower their demands for the 29-year-old.

“Liverpool don’t want to pay Bayern’s asking price and have not submitted a bid,” Romano added.

Liverpool are being frugal in the current market having already pulled out of a deal for Timo Werner over RB Leipzig’s valuation of the player.

Former Reds midfielder John Barnes recently warned against the deal, he told : “With the midfield being very workmanlike, they are a lot of points better off than everybody else. The reason you can have two full-backs attacking at the same time and three strikers is because they have three hard-working midfielders to protect that situation.

“If you get another creative midfielder and you want your full-backs and front three to attack, then maybe you are going to concede more goals.

“Manchester City have got how many creative players in their midfield? But Liverpool finished 20-odd points ahead of them. Maybe Man City should say: ‘Let’s get more hard-working players in midfield so we can catch Liverpool.’”
