Wolves set to hijack Liverpool move for Ismailla Sarr

Wolverhampton Wanderers have reportedly identified Watford winger Ismaila Sarr as a potential alternative to Adama Traore.

Liverpool have also been linked with a move for Sarr, who is friends with compatriot Sadio Mane.

While the West Midlands outfit have little desire to sell one of their key men, it remains to be seen how they would react if they received an offer in excess of £60m.

According to The Mirror, Wolves have already identified potential replacements for Traore, a list which includes Senegal international Sarr.

Despite Watford’s relegation to the Championship, the 22-year-old enjoyed a productive first campaign in the Premier League, contributing five goals and four assists from 28 appearances.

Given the financial implications which come with dropping out of the Premier League, the Hornets are likely to be prepared to consider any bids in the region of £30m.
