Watford fans react as Newcastle reportedly eye move for Ismaila Sarr

Newcastle United are reportedly looking to sign Ismaila Sarr as the Saudi-backed consortium’s first addition – and Watford fans have reacted.

Sarr, 23, has been on fire for Watford during the early stages of 21-22 campaign. Indeed, his form has seen him linked with Liverpool, at times.

Four goals in nine Premier League outings, predominantly as a right winger – for a side that have already changed manager, is supremely impressive.

Little surprise, then, that Newcastle are keen. The Toon have Callum Wilson up top, and Allan Saint-Maximin on the left. A right-winger is needed.

The Mail claim that the new owners want to make Senegal international Sarr their first signing in January – though Watford are reluctant to sell.

What do Watford fans think as Newcastle reportedly eye Sarr?

For Watford fans, it is a tricky one. They will be desperate to see Sarr remain in Hertfordshire, but they will also know he will eventually go.

Perhaps, they will be hoping they can at least keep their star player until the summer before cashing in. It is yet to see Sarr’s stance.

Watford fans have reacted on Twitter to reports that Newcastle are interested in signing Sarr – as the first addition in January.
