Report: West Ham now most likely side to sign Ismaila Sarr

West Ham United are the most likely side to sign Ismaila Sarr this summer, with the Sunday People (12/6; page 61) reporting that the Hammers are on pole position to beat Newcastle to his signature.

Sarr looks set to be offered the chance to stay in the Premier League next season. He scored five times in 22 games in the top-flight as Watford were relegated to the Championship.

Unsurprisingly, a queue of clubs has formed at the start of the window. Reports claimed that Everton, Newcastle and Crystal Palace all want the Senegalese.

The Magpies looked to be leading the race by holding talks with his agent. But it seems that David Moyes’ men may have jumped to the front of the line.

The Sunday People (12/6; page 61) reports that West Ham are now lining up a move for Sarr. Watford meanwhile, want around £25 million for the forward.

Interestingly, it is also suggested that the London Stadium is Sarr’s most likely destination.

West Ham most likely to sign Sarr

It would be a potential coup for West Ham to sign Sarr this summer. Certainly, if the Irons can get the best out of the 24-year-old, he could prove to be an absolutely inspired signing.

Obviously, the Hornets have not had the best time in the top-flight in the last few years. But Sarr has 10 goals and eight assists in 50 Premier League games. That is a pretty strong record.

He has been described as a ‘frightening‘ player. And for £25 million, it is not difficult to see why so many top-flight sides want to secure his signature.

Perhaps there may be further twists to come. But it does seem that West Ham are well on their way to winning the race to sign Sarr this summer.
