Report: Everton join Crystal Palace, Leeds & West Ham in race to sign £71,000-a-week man
According to the Evening Standard , Everton have joined Crystal Palace, Leeds and West Ham in the race to sign Ismaila Sarr.
what is the story
Interest in the Senegalese international is growing after Patrick Vieira spoke to the £71,000-a-week man about a move to Selhurst Park.
It comes after sources claimed that Leeds have advanced talks to sign Sarr, a player David Moyes is also monitoring as he considers bringing him to West Ham.
Now that Chelsea are attempting to sign Anthony Gordon, Everton have lined up the Watford No.23 as a potential replacement for the England Under-21 international.
The Evening Standard believe Watford are demanding £30m for the 24-year-old striker, the same fee they handed over to Rennes for the 2019 signing.
Crystal Palace have a long-term interest in Sarr.
The south Londoners appealed to Watford for his services before he left Rennes and also made a £25m bid in 2020 after the Hornets were relegated.
Sarr has scored one goal in three games in the Championship so far this season and has also provided one assist.
Crystal Palace, Leeds and West Ham must be wary of Everton
In our opinion, Everton could soon blow away the competition in the race for Sarra.
That said, Chelsea are interested in signing Gordon and have seen a £45m bid rejected for the Everton No.10 in recent days.
However, should the Toffees eventually agree a sale worth £50m or more, it would give Frank Lampard the chance to make a huge bid for Sarr, while the Toffees would have the extra funds to offer him a more enticing contract.
Therefore, even if the likes of Crystal Palace, Leeds or West Ham meet Watford’s £30m asking price, Everton could end up increasing that amount with an improved offer if they receive significant funds from Chelsea.
Keep an eye on this situation as things seem to be moving quickly.
