Liverpool have signed a relegated Premier League player in each of the last five seasons, and Ismaila Sarr could be the latest to be snapped up by the Reds, according to reports.
Sarr provided six assists and scored five goals – including a brace in Watford’s 3-0 win over Liverpool – in his debut Premier League season after his £27million move from Rennes.
The report claims that a move from Wolves or Palace would only materialise should their respective talents Adama Traore and Wilfried Zaha move elsewhere in the summer.
A return to France has also been mooted, and clubs in Spain and Germany are also understood to be monitoring the 22-year-old’s situation. It seems unlikely a man of his talent will remain at Watford in the Championship.
