Liverpool have not had a €40m bid accepted by Watford for Ismaila Sarr, despite reports claiming otherwise earlier this week.

The club had reportedly reached an agreement with Watford worth between €35m and €40m for the attacker.

TalkSport journalist Alex Crook, however, has denied these claims and says that Liverpool have not even made an offer for Sarr – let alone had one accepted.

ANFIELD WATCH VERDICT 

Liverpool have signed Diogo Jota from Wolves to bolster the competition out wide, meaning that a move for Sarr may not be on the cards now. Jota scored 16 goals in all competitions for Wolves last season, whilst Sarr found the back of the net five times in the Premier League for Watford as they were relegated to the second tier.

Jota’s superior goal return to Sarr also suggests that Liverpool made the right decision in signing him over the Watford man. Jota is only 23 and has the potential to further develop and improve to help ease the load on Mo Salah and Sadio Mane across all competitions.

If he can add some more goals to Liverpool’s squad and contribute in the Premier League and Champions League to help the club win trophies, it could be an excellent signing. It will now be interesting to see if Sarr does leave Watford to join another Premier League team before the end of the window, or if he decides to stay in the Championship.
