Premier League side Arsenal are plotting a fast move to beat other suitors in the race to sign Rennes top star Ismaila Sarr.
According to a UK Sun report citing the Daily Mirror, the Emirates side are now eyeing the £50m-rated Sarr, who is also on the radar of top Europe clubs that include Manchester United, Chelsea, Man City, Barcelona, Juventus and Inter Milan.
Reacting on the latest development, following the 20-year-old’s wonderful strike against FK Jablonec in the Europa League, his agent, Thierno Seydi, who likened his player to Ousmane Dembele stressed that the Senegalese is top quality on the pitch.
“He is very fast with an excellent technique.
“He has the same qualities as Dembele of Barcelona. They are similar players.
“I have received many calls from English and German clubs and maybe even one from Italy.
“Many agents from the UK have called me proposing to work with them and Ismaïla to get him to the Premier League.
“One Italian agent asked to speak with Juventus. The price will be around 50-60m Euros ,” noted Seydi.
Interestingly, since Sarr excelled at the summer World Cup in Russia, his profile has continue to be on the rise with former England Gary Lineker describing the Teranga Lions ace as a star of the future.
