EPL: Man United in another late Liverpool target bid


Man United seem to be leaving it late to capture most of their targets this summer transfer window as they are now reported to be making enquiry about some players.

It has been reported that they have just submitted a bid for Alex Telles and now, it is claimed that they are making an approach for Watford winger Ismaila Sarr who is also a target for Liverpool.

The Telegraph reports that the Red Devils have enquired about the availability of the player from Watford with the hope that they can hold talks over his services in the next few days.

Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is keen on a winger and he might just consider Ismaila Sarr after losing out on England international Jadon Sancho for failing to agree on a fee with German Bundesliga outfit Borussia Dortmund.

Now that the Red Devils cannot get Jadon Sancho for anything less than the £100 million asking price, they are considering Ismaila Sarr as a cheaper alternative.

Ismaila Sarr is also young and already has an experience of the English Premier League which makes him a good option for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to strengthen his squad for the season’s challenge.

Liverpool were earlier leading in the race for the Senegal international winger but they are not prepared to meet Watford’s £40 million price tag.
