'He's got it all': Ben Foster raves about 'rapid' £25m attacker Leeds United reportedly want to sign

Ben Foster has been raving about his former Watford teammate Ismaila Sarr, who is reportedly a target for Leeds United.

Speaking to TalkSPORT, Foster was discussing the Hornets chances of being promoted back to the Premier League.

The conversation moved onto the 24-year-old forward, and Foster was asked if Sarr was good enough for a bigger club. “Easily. He would fit into one of the big boys.

“If his head is on it and he’s fully fit and flying and not worrying about any hamstring injuries, he is top notch. I mean top notch.

“He is double rapid and his balls into the box, his delivery, he can finish, he’s got it all. Honestly.”

Foster raves about Leeds target Sarr

Ismaila Sarr could be a man on the move in the final week of the transfer window.

There’s been plenty of speculation about his future, with a number of Premier League clubs interested in the forward.

Aston Villa had a £25m fee agreed for Sarr, but the deal eventually collapsed.

Leeds had reportedly been in advanced talks with Sarr before Villa reached that agreement, however the door is now open for the Whites to rekindle their interest.

The attacker would be a fantastic option for Leeds, offering pace, skill and goals from either wing or in a more central role.

His work rate on and off the ball will also be under scrutiny, with Leeds players all required to maintain a high level of pressing.

Sarr started Watford’s first three league games this season, scoring against West Brom, and providing an assist for Newcastle target Joao Pedro against Sheffield United.

He’s been left out of Watford’s last two matchday squads with a reported fitness issue, but the constant transfer talk is likely to be a distraction.

The Senegalese international’s future is likely to go right down to the wire in this window, but with people like Foster raving about Sarr in the media, it’s unlikely to quieten interest from Leeds or other clubs.
