Liverpool keeping close tabs with €25m-rated African winger

Reds are linked with many forwards and one of them is Watford winger Ismaila Sarr. Earlier this month, the Reds are emerging as favourites to hire the services of Senegal international from the Hornets, who were unable to survive PL relegation last term.

Reds have got one of the best attacks in world football with players like Firmino, Mane and Salah around. The trio have regularly scored and created goals under the management of the German manager. More importantly, the dynamic front three have remained fit as Liverpool do not have enough quality in depth to replace them.

In such a scenario, Kevin Kilbane has backed Liverpool to sign Ismaila from Watford. The ex-PL footballer thinks that Sarr is much better than Divock Origi.

Belgium international is naturally a striker but he mainly played as a winger last campaign. Origi became an Anfield star after scoring some of the most important goals in his career in the 2018-19 season. However, Divock was not in top form the last term and managed to score only 4 goals in 28 league games.

On the other hand, Xherdan was mostly out injured and winter signing Takumi Minamino has not been able to settle as yet. Therefore, the depth of the attack should be improved and Kilbane thinks that the 22-year-old forward would be ‘perfect’ for the Reds.

The teenager directly contributed in 11 goals in the last PL season and was the MOTM vs Liverpool as he scored 2 goals and provided an assist in Watford’s 3-0 victory at home.
