Liverpool fans keeping an eye on Sadio Mane for Senegal were left impressed by his international teammate Ismaila Sarr.

Sarr started alongside Mane as Senegal battled to a 2-2 draw with a resilient Japan side.

Winger Sarr had one shot on target and created another chance in the Group H clash.

Liverpool are not short of wingers and Sarr would only be a back-up, and could be an alternative to Xherdan Shaqiri if they decided to make a move.

The Reds have been looking towards more proven stars in the transfer market of late, with Fabinho, Naby Keita and Virgil van Dijk.

Making a move for a young prospect like Sarr is more the strategy employed with mixe dresults under Brendan Rodgers, but fans believe he could turn out to be a real gem.
