Manchester United have been locked in negotiations with Borussia Dortmund for some time after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer identified Jadon Sancho as his prime transfer target as he looks to add a top-class right-sided attacker to his squad this summer.
However, their pursuit of the England international hasn’t proven easy.
Solskjaer’s side are growing increasingly frustrated in their attempts to land Sancho and are prepared to walk away from the negotiating table, so Solskjaer is looking at alternative targets.
According to the Independent, have made contact over a potential deal to sign Watford’s £30m-rated attacker Ismaila Sarr.
The report claims Liverpool are also showing a keen interest in the Senegal international.
Jurgen Klopp is working from a tight budget and may not have the money to fund a move for the 22-year-old.
That could leave the Red Devils well-positioned to sign Sarr if they decide to make their interest official and the Independent suggests that the Hornets will demand at least £30m for the attackers signature.
Sarr is predominantly a right-winger so he’d give Solskjaer another option on the flank.
