Liverpool attacker, Sadio Mane has backed his side’s chase of Watford attacker Ismaila Sarr this summer.
Sarr has been strongly linked with Liverpool over the past one year.
And sharing a video with his 8.5million Instagram followers, Mane showed his Senegalese compatriot Sarr scoring for Watford against Liverpool back in February 2020.
The shock 3-0 defeat for the Reds that day was their first loss in 28 Premier League matches that campaign and ended their hopes of emulating Arsenal’s Invincibles.
Sarr’s agent, Thierno Seydi, earlier this year claimed a move for the Senegal international was at an advanced stage before they looked elsewhere.
“With Liverpool, we were at the stage of signing the contract to bind the Reds to Ismaila Sarr,” he said to Pan African Football.
“Everything was set, the monthly salary and the length of the deal. I even asked Sadio Mane to find him an apartment.”
