LFC Daytrippers contributor Grizz Khan has been discussing Ismaila Sarr during a recent edition of the podcast.

Earlier in the window, the Reds were said to have an interest in the Watford winger, however, according to the podcaster, the club’s desire to land the player has developed into a firm bid.

Sarr signed for Watford from Stade Rennais in August 2019 in a deal reportedly worth £27m (as per Transfermarkt). Since signing for the Hornets, he has made 30 appearances, scoring six goals and providing his teammates with six assists.

During the opening game of the 2019/20 Premier League season, which Norwich City player scored an own goal to open the scoring?

Khan confirmed that to his knowledge, the Anfield club have now submitted a formal offer for the 22-year-old, here is what he had to say:

“We’ve actually put in a bid for Ismaila Sarr. We made a very, very lovely bid of £25m. We’ve initially tried to get [him] on a loan deal with an obligation to buy but Watford have refused that, so then we’ve put in a bid of £25m to test the waters.”

TIF Thoughts…

Last season in the Premier League, the Senegalese wide man made 28 appearances and according to, his average performance rating was a solid 6.71/10.

Taking into consideration the player’s age, it could be argued that he could still develop further, although if he were to join Jurgen Klopp’s side now, in our view, he would likely provide backup to Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah initially, while the Reds’ reported £45m deal to sign Wolves winger Diogo Jota could potentially diminish the chances of Liverpool plumping for the Watford man.

The aforementioned pair scored 45 goals between them last season and so, if Sarr does join Liverpool, you could argue the £22.05m-rated winger would need to up his game in order to displace one of the two current first-choice wingers.
