A number of Tottenham Hotspur fans have taken to Twitter to react to reports from the Sunday Mirror (9/8; page 65) over the weekend suggesting that Spurs are in the race to sign Ismaila Sarr from Watford.
There is set to be plenty of intrigue surrounding what Tottenham do during the coming weeks. It is, of course, Jose Mourinho’s first summer at the helm.
And one of the players Mourinho reportedly wants is Sarr with the Watford star attracting a lot of attention following the Hornets’ relegation.
The 22-year-old was a revelation for the club following his club-record move last summer (via BBC Sport). He scored five goals and provided four assists in the Premier League.
And the Sunday Mirror (9/8; page 65) has suggested that Tottenham, Liverpool and Manchester United are all tracking the youngster.
There are certainly plenty of Spurs fans desperately hoping that they can win the race for Sarr. They are excited by the links with the attacker and believe that he could be a fantastic addition to Mourinho’s squad.
There are some concerns about targeting players from relegated clubs. But the majority appear to feel that he has an incredible future ahead of him.
And thus, Spurs need to do all they can to convince him to snub interest from elsewhere and move to North London.
Here is how some of the supporters have reacted to the reports…
If the funds are there then definitely Yes

Although we don’t need wingers, we’d be mad not to get him. The kid could be a star. Absolutely rapid!
