Liverpool FC and Manchester United are one of four Premier League clubs chasing Ismalia Sarr’s signature, according to a report in England.

Website Metro is reporting that the Senegal international is attracting a lot of interest following his impressive performances at the World Cup.

The same article states that Liverpool FC and Manchester United are facing competition from London duo Arsenal and Chelsea FC to sign the African forward.

According to the same story, the Rennes forward has earned favourable comparisons to FC Barcelona and France striker Ousmane Dembele.

The report goes to suggest that Ligue 1 side Rennes would demand a transfer fee in the region of £50m for the 20-year-old in the current transfer market.

Sarr scored five times in 27 games in all competitions in his first season at Rennes following a move from French club Metz in the 2017 summer transfer window.

The Rennes star has scored three times in 17 games for the Senegal national team since he made his debut as a teenager in a 2-0 win over Nambia in September 2017.

Liverpool FC could have a slight advantage in the race to sign Sarr given his team-mate Sadio Mane is currently a member of Jurgen Klopp’s squad.

The Reds have history when it comes to signing Senegal’s World Cup stars after Gerard Houllier brought in Salif Diao and El Hadji Diouf following their performances at the 2002 tournament.
