Liverpool eyeing move for £22m-rated ace

Ismaila Sarr versus Manchester City

How do you improve this Liverpool team? 

It's a tricky question. They are World Club Cup Champions, the current Champions League holders and they now have a Premier League title in the bag.

Jurgen Klopp has essentially achieved all he can at Anfield, but that won't stop him in his pursuit of further greatness.

This Liverpool side can outclass anyone on their day but Klopp needs to keep things fresh and introduce new players capable of challenging the regular starters.

The Reds haven't had the greatest depth on their bench throughout the season and they were particularly lucky that injuries didn't strike them severely. 

Liverpool will need to get rid of deadwood like Xherdan Shaqiri this summer and after selling Dejan Lovren, efforts are clearly being made.

However, those types of names will need replacing by someone.

According to the Watford Observer, a new target has been identified. 

They suggest that Liverpool are in the hunt to sign winger Ismaila Sarr, the man who ended their chances of going unbeaten with two goals and an assist earlier this season. 

Rated at £22m by Transfermarkt, his value has fallen since joining the Hornets for around £40m.

After being relegated with the Hertfordshire side, he could be on the move following just a year at Vicarage Road. 

Three clubs are pondering a deal for the 22-year-old with Wolves and Crystal Palace also in the race. 

No bid has been made yet but it's reported that Liverpool have already contacted the player's representatives.

GIVEMESPORT'S Matt Dawson says...

Sarr had a troubled start to life in England and it took him until the end of November to score his first Premier League strike.

However, he impressed considerably once he finally got going, bagging seven goals and creating five assists in 22 starts.

There was also a period at one stage where he scored four times and provided three assists in eight outings.

It's hardly surprising that he's commanded the respect of his teammates in such a short period of time. Goalkeeper Ben Foster swooned over the youngster earlier this term, saying: "He's a crazy good talent, he's so calm in front of goal and he's got electric pace as well."

If he did join, then it would continue a trend that Liverpool have established in recent years.

They've looked towards the relegated sides and pounced willingly on their better players. You only need to look at the additions of Andy Robertson, Gini Wijnaldum and Shaqiri to realise that.

Sometimes it works out better than others, but at the age of just 22, Sarr surely has a greater chance of ending up like Wijnaldum, rather than his Swiss teammate.
