West Ham United have a ‘genuine’ interest in signing Ismaila Sarr from Watford, the Athletic report.
West Ham have identified Sarr as a potential addition, with David Moyes’s side still looking to improve their attacking options.
West Ham already have the likes of Jarrod Bowen, Michail Antonio and Said Benrahma available, who could play down the flanks.
But Moyes is said to want another wide-man and Sarr is on his wishlist.
Watford want £50 million for the rapid winger though, which makes any deal look difficult this window.
West Ham are prioritising signing an out and out centre forward following the departure of Sebastien Haller, which means that Sarr’s potential move may be put on the back burner for a while.
If Sarr was to join West Ham he could be a seriously exciting addition to their attack.
The 22-year-old was a real threat in the Premier League last term, despite Watford’s relegation, and looks to have a hugely bright future ahead of him.
