Leeds United close to completing Ismaïla Sarr deal

As reported by Foot Mercato, Leeds United are close to completing an agreement to sign Watford’s former Rennes winger Ismaïla Sarr this summer transfer window.

After Watford’s relegation to the Championship at the end of last season, the Senegalese international has been in high demand and Leeds are on verge of agreeing on a fee for the 24-year-old to join the Elland Road club.

Meanwhile, talks are ongoing between Leeds and Sarr’s entourage over personal terms, which are also close to being complete, say the outlet. However, his move to the Yorkshire side would be dependent on the club making a sale beforehand, to free up funds and space in the squad for the winger to join.

Having joined the English club in 2019 for €30m from Ligue 1, Sarr has made 94 appearances for Watford, scoring 25 goals and making 19 assists in the process, but he only managed seven goal contributions in 22 Premier League outings last season.

Sarr was valued at €35m by Watford last month.
