Rennes set to sign Ismaila Sarr

Ligue 1 side Rennes are finally set to seal a deal worth more than €15m for Metz attacker Ismaila Sarr, according to Ouest France.

The 19 year old was one of the hottest young talents in France last season and represents a huge coup for SRFC if they can get the deal over the line.

Barcelona have been following the player for several months, with Lille and RB Leipzig both having courted Sarr heavily, making a series of verbal bids to Metz in the process.

Newcastle United also submitted an offer worth €12m, which was rejected by both Metz and Sarr, with the player deciding that it was too early in his career to leave France.
