Report: Everton could now move to sign 'frightening' attacker if Anthony Gordon leaves, he's absolutely rapid
Everton could try to sign Watford attacker Ismaila Sarr this summer, with the Evening Standard reporting that the club could move for the player if Anthony Gordon leaves.
Reports have suggested that Chelsea are aiming to bring Gordon to Stamford Bridge this summer. And it could leave Frank Lampard looking for a replacement.
The ‘frightening’ Sarr could be an attractive option for the Toffees boss and has been dubbed as an absolutely ‘rapid’ player by Sadio Mane in the past.
And now Everton could look to compete against their Premier League rivals for the Championship star.
The Toffees are trying to keep hold of Gordon amid interest from Chelsea. But if the player was to leave, they could turn their attention to Sarr.
Everton could move to sign Sarr
The 24-year-old put in some promising displays in the Premier League last season. Sarr has shown some real glimpses of quality and scored from inside his own half recently.
The Senegal international has already scored and assisted once in three outings for the Hornets this season.
Lampard has been on the lookout for attacking reinforcements this summer, especially after the injury to Dominic Calvert-Lewin.
And if Gordon was to leave for Thomas Tuchel’s side, Sarr would be an excellent replacement. The winger possesses blistering pace and was often a standout performer in a struggling Watford side last season.
If Lampard does lose Gordon, he will be keen to replace him quickly. Sarr is capable of playing across the front-three and would be a versatile option for the Toffees boss.
But with Leeds and Crystal Palace battling for his signature already, Everton would probably have to move quickly. And that may not be possible if they are trying to keep hold of Gordon.
