Jurgen Klopp told winger Sarr ‘would be a fantastic addition at Liverpool’
Ismaila Sarr should remain an option on Liverpool’s recruitment radar, says John Barnes.
Sarr has been impressing at Watford for more than 12 months now and was actually linked with a transfer move to Anfield in the summer, but Jurgen Klopp opted to bring the imressive Diogo Jota to the club instead.
However, there has been more reports that he is back on the radar of the Liverpool boss, and It has been suggested that £40 million ($54m) may be required in order to prise Sarr from Vicarage Road, but Barnes believes that would be money well spent if Klopp looks to land another exciting forward.
The ex-Reds and Hornets midfielder told BonusCodeBets when asked if a move for Sadio Mane’s international colleague should be made: “Yes, if he wanted to be one of the front three, but, and I’ve said this before, we need a centre-back.
“Although a great player and looking forward he’d be fantastic player to have as part of the team, it’s not what we need at this very moment in time.
“If they want to sign him as a long-term investment, then I think that’s great. But right now, this very season, we need to strengthen our defence so to find suitable players for this should be the priority.”
Look, Sarr is a very gifted player, but with all the attacking quality that Liverpool have right now, do they actually need to delve into that transfer kitty and splash £40 million on the winger?
They need to add depth to the squad, but another forward and a new defender will be high on the priority list of Klopp.
