Manchester United target Watford attacker?

Ismaila Sarr on Manchester United radar?

Watford attacker Ismaila Sarr has reportedly emerged as a probable target for Manchester United as they aim to strengthen the wide attacking department.

The Red Devils have been regularly linked with a move for Jadon Sancho, but they are running out of time to agree a deal with Borussia Dortmund.

The international transfer window closes on October 5 and so far, they have shown no interest in matching Dortmund's £108m price tag for the attacker.

Hence, they are deemed to be looking at alternative options and The Independent claims that Sarr has been added to their shortlist.

The Senegal international joined the Hornets from Rennes last summer and he made a good impression in his debut season with five goals and six assists from 28 league outings.

Sarr is said to be keen on returning to the Premier League after the Hornets' relegation, but he has clearly mentioned that he won't force a departure from the club, where he is contracted until June 2024. 

Manchester United have yet to make a formal approach for his services, but reports claim that the Hornet could consider his sale for £30m during the ongoing transfer window.
