Last time out, Callum Wilson finished the season as Newcastle’s top scorer for a second campaign running, however, that should be seen as a worrying statistic for fans and Eddie Howe as he only started 16 league matches and still finished top of the scoring charts with eight strikes.
This will almost certainly be an area that Howe looks to improve this transfer window with links to the likes of Amine Gouiri, Moussa Diaby and also, recently relegated Sarr from Watford who experienced a poor season in front of goal registering just seven goal involvements.
Talbot, who claims he broke the Magpies’ interest in Sarr, still backs Newcastle to try and sign the Senegalese international.
Would you like Newcastle to sign Sarr?
(16:55) “I think Sarr is a good one, we’ve got to talk about Sarr a little bit, that’s my exclusive.”
(17:55) “Sarr, I think they’ll probably get him as he’s quite cheap and he just seems like the cheapest option.”
TIF Thoughts on Newcastle’s interest in Sarr…
It was being reported that Newcastle wanted to sign Sarr in January, however, given they were then direct rivals with Watford to avoid relegation, any deal would have surely been very difficult to complete. Former Watford head coach Xisco Munoz labelled the African attacker as a ‘top player’ during his time working with him at the club.
Now though, the Hornets have dropped down a division and after having already played one season in the Championship and just two years left on his contract, it remains to be seen whether or not Sarr would be willing to stay at Vicarage Road for another campaign.
