Spurs fans react to Ismaila Sarr display for Watford
A number of Spurs fans have taken to Twitter to comment on Ismaila Sarr after the reported Tottenham target came up against Nuno Espirito Santo’s side on Sunday.
Spurs top the Premier League heading into the international break. They have now won three games in a row in the top flight, with one goal being enough to win each fixture.
In their latest, it was Son Heung-min who bagged the winner as the Hornets were beaten in North London.
Of course, Spurs fans would have been looking forward to seeing their side attempt to extend their flawless start to the new campaign.
But the game also provided Tottenham fans with an opportunity to have a look at a player they have been linked with this summer.
It was reported by Eurosport earlier this month that Spurs want Sarr. It was noted that Watford could ask for more than £50 million.
Admittedly, a move at this stage of the window looks highly unlikely. There seems to have been little to suggest that Spurs will confirm their interest in this window.
But interestingly, a few Tottenham fans have insisted that they would rather see a move for Sarr than another reported target Adama Traore.
No player on either side completed more dribbles than Sarr in the clash on Sunday (Whoscored). And some fans felt that Nuno had developed a specific plan to deal with the 23-year-old.
‘Signed the wrong Sarr’: Spurs fans react to Watford star’s display
It would be an amazing move if Tottenham did now put in a bid for Sarr. But certainly, he is a player that many fans would like the club to monitor in the months ahead.
With that in mind, here is what some of the Spurs were saying about Sarr on Sunday…

Take it but must improve offensively!
• Defense superb again
• PEH needs to stop going out to RW
• We BADLY need an AM
• Stevie B needs to add some threat
• Dele never stopped running – MOTM
• Skipp was solid
• Sarr is better than Adama

From what I’ve seen, I’d rather Paratici go after Sarr than Traore. #COYS

Would love to sign Sarr tbh

Hope the results don’t hide the fact we need 2 or 3 more in. Desperate for a creative Midfielder and also getting Traore or Sarr would be magic.
Need right back the most imo.
Impressed with both centre backs again today.
Anyone seen the league table mind the gap #COYS

I’d bring Gil on at HT. Let him run them ragged and I’d also take Sarr hostage at FT! Sign him. He’s brilliant!
