Liverpool have opened talks with the representatives of Watford winger Ismaila Sarr, according to the Watford Observer and supporters have been reacting on Twitter.
Wolves and Crystal Palace are also interested, but Liverpool appear to have moved first.
Sarr only arrived at Vicarage Road last summer, costing a club record £25 million from Ligue 1 side Rennes (BBC).
He enjoyed a decent maiden campaign in the Premier League; notching six times and registering as many assists in 30 appearances.
Sarr played brilliantly during a 3-0 win over Liverpool during 2019/20 and may have caught the eye of Jurgen Klopp.
The 22-year-old scored twice and set up the other as the Reds were surprisingly swept aside.
On the back of the latest reports, supporters have been talking about the Senegal international on Twitter.
Plenty believe he will be a shrewd enough signing and hope a deal can be struck to see him head to Anfield.
Sarr earns £25,000-a-week at Vicarage Road and Watford’s relegation will only enhance his chances of leaving.
Liverpool won’t be on the lookout for regular starters and Klopp would welcome Sarr’s quality in reserve.
Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah aren’t going anywhere soon but Sarr would be an improvement on Xherdan Shaqiri or Divock Origi from the bench.

He will be a good player for us

This guy was excellent when Watford beat us this season. Sadio is an international teammate so he's not going to have a problem settling in. This could be a good signing for us if its true.(I take all transfer speculation with a pinch of salt)

Decent player, Wouldn’t be surprised if Liverpool are having a good look. Have done it in the past with Wijnaldum, Robertson etc.

I’d love to see this. This kid could be amazing within one to two years under Klopp and be world class.
