Writing in a piece for Liverpool.com, journalist David Alexander Hughes has tipped Watford winger Ismaila Sarr to eventually succeed Sadio Mane at Anfield – going on to add that the Hornets’ relegation battle could be a huge factor over whether we make a move.
Sarr, who has started 13 Premier League games this campaign, scoring five goals and assisting three others, is seen as one of the top flight’s ‘future stars‘ – so much so that the Reds and manager Jurgen Klopp should consider him as an eventual Mane replacement, according to Liverpool.com.
Could Ismaila Sarr eventually succeed Mane?
Yes, absolute beast
No, Mane is on another level
Having moved to Vicarage Road in a club record £25 million deal last summer, the Senegalese winger and compatriot of Mane has impressed in flashes – most notably up against the Reds during our 3-0 defeat which ended an impressive unbeaten run.
Indeed, as per SofaScore, the 22-year-old terrorised Andrew Robertson down the flanks – scoring two goals and assisting one other during the rout.
It’s clear that Sarr may have the potential and reputation for an Anfield move, but journalist Hughes also claims that his close relationship with Mane could be a deciding factor.
Whether or not we are tempted with a move in future remains to be seen, but the attacker could be a welcome addition as Mane’s future heir.
