Transfer rumours are starting to ramp up now that the domestic season has been concluded and players that have previously been heavily linked with Arsenal are now starting to attract other interested parties.
One of those players is Rennes star Ismaila Sarr, and the £25 Million rated forward has now come to the attention of Leicester City, Roma and AC Milan, who are all reportedly keen on signing the 21-year-old.
Sarr is highly talented, we know this from our own experience of watching him play against us in the Europa League and with 12 goals and 11 assists, mainly from the wing, for a side hardly setting French football alight is fairly impressive.
His price is very attractive and when you take on board his young age, he is definitely a player we should be looking to sign.
It is also being reported that we made contact with Rennes back in March but for some reason that has died down and that is a slight worry.
In fact, a source close to the Senegalese international has claimed that Leicester City has now made a firm approach for the player.
This is what the source apparently told Senegalese media:
‘Leicester, Roma and AC Milan are the three clubs that have shown genuine interest in signing Ismaila.
‘He has been linked with moves to Arsenal and Liverpool. But I have not heard any news from either of these two clubs.’
It would certainly be frustrating if we allow others to come along and basically hijack our plans when it was us that first showed significant interest in the impressive winger and I have a feeling that we will regret it if we do not pull our fingers out and start to firm up that initial interest with a firm bid and soon.
