Liverpool to add up another Senegal star in summer window

Timothy Aiyeku



Emerging reports claim that the English Premier League outfit could have the second Senegal international player in the team ahead of the coming season as they are being linked with the signature of French Ligue 1 outfit Rennes star Ismaila Sarr.

The Reds team seem to have developed confidence in the ability of Senegal players as they have had it good with Sadio Mane so far since he joined the club from Southampton.

It has been claimed that manager Jurgen Klopp is already considering the option of bringing a striker to the team that will complement Brazilian international Roberto Firmino and also provide the competition needed in the team.

Ismaila Sarr has therefore been impressing in the French Ligue 1 and has been tipped to succeed as well at the Anfield like his Senegal counterpart.

However, in 31 appearances for Rennes, Ismaila Sarr has been able to drive home 5 goals and provided 8 for his teammate but his impressive performance has created the belief that he can perform.

Meanwhile, he has got a contract with the Ligue 1 outfit until 2020 but there are suggestions that he will jump at any offer from the Reds team because of his desire to play in the English Premier League.
