Report claims West Ham are set to lodge £25 million Ismaila Sarr bid

West Ham United are allegedly lining up a £25 million bid for talented Watford attacker Ismaila Sarr.

That’s according to a report from The Mirror (print edition June 12th, page 72) who claim that the Hammers could swoop in for the relegated star this summer.

West Ham manager David Moyes desperately needs to bolster his centre-forward ranks at the London Stadium before the start of next season.

Ismaila Sarr allegedly could be West Ham bound and we think that’s great news…

The Scot has history of preferring attacking wide players to operate through the middle – just look at what he did with Marko Arnautovic and Michail Antonio.

With that in mind, it’s surprise to see why West Ham might want to sign Sarr from Watford.

And it seems as though a Hammers bid for the 47-capped Senegal International could be imminent…

West Ham eyeing Ismaila Sarr bid

The Mirror reckon that West Ham are set to make a £25 million bid for the 24-year-old Watford ace.

He is allegedly likely to leave Vicarage Road and the Hammers apparently have a good chance of getting a deal done for the fee mentioned above.

We believe that Sarr would be a smart addition for West Ham for that kind of money.

However, it must be noted that he is more of a winger, although he can play through the middle if needed. As mentioned earlier though, Moyes prefers that kind of attacker anyway.

Sarr has racked up 24 goals and 18 assists in 92 games for the Hornets (Transfermarkt).

This season just gone, he bagged five goals and two assists in 22 Premier League games (Transfermarkt). He has only chalked up 10 goals and eight assists in 50 Premier League games, and that may well be somewhat of a concern for Moyes and the Hammers.

He’s well capable of improving those numbers though.

The 24-year-old is a frightening talent with explosive pace. He has a really direct playing style and that combined with his speed would add so much to West Ham’s counter-attacking setup.

£25 million for Sarr seems like very good value to us.

If West Ham sign Ismaila Sarr this summer, we firmly believe that we will be a lot stronger next season. One thing we really lack at the moment as a team is pace. And bringing in the Senegalese star will solve all of that in one fell swoop.
