The deal for Jota was expected to cool Liverpool's interest in Ismaila Sarr. Not so, apparently.

Liverpool have reportedly “agreed a deal” for Ismaila Sarr, despite completing the signing of Diogo Jota last week.

The Reds were interested in the Senegal international before he joined Watford last summer for a club-record £30million, and have continued to be linked with the winger ever since.

Their deal for Jota was expected to end of their interest in Sarr for the time being, but Jurgen Klopp is still keen on the 22-year-old according to France Football.

The report suggests Liverpool have made a breakthrough in negotiations and have agreed a deal with Watford worth between £32million and £36million.

Sarr put Liverpool to the sword in Watford’s 3-0 win over the Reds at Vicarage Road in February, their first defeat of the season.

Earlier this summer, Sarr made it clear he would be open to joining Liverpool where he could team up with “big brother” Sadio Mane.
