Hi ed1. The Sarr rumours seem to be everywhere, have you heard anything at all? Saying we have agreed a fee with Watford. Thanks.

{Ed001's Note - nothing mate, I know he is desperate to join us because of Mane, so it seems highly unlikely to me unless we are worried about coronavirus issues hitting the team. If Mane or Salah were likely to be leaving, it would make more sense. This is probably the time for a bigger squad though, and it would give him time to bed in. But I don't know anything about it.}

Thank you for the quick response. Have a good evening.

{Ed001's Note - very welcome mate, you too.}

Even if we sell players who basically aren't going to feature this season (Wilson, Karius etc. ) and Origi and Shaqiri as well, I genuinely don't see how we'd possibly use Sarr, Taku and Jota with enough regularity, given that Salah, Mane and Bobby are undisputably first choice. Not to mention the occasional look in for Elliot. We'd basically be relying on injuries or corona to make Sarr necessary.

And even without Sarr, we've enough cover for pretty much anything but half the team getting corona, in which case we'll likely have fixture postponement anyway.

I reckon it's just Twitter chat with no substance and our interest ended when we decided to go for Jota instead.

100% agree SR. It was either Sarr or Jota.

23 Sep 2020 00:49:25
If Sarr comes that would surely mean both Shaqiri and Origi are on their way out.

Would only make sense if there’s discussions around either Mane or Salah going next summer for a large fee. I hope not as they are both extraordinary and complete game changers, as already evident from first two games. We are incredibly lucky to have both in our squad.

23 Sep 2020 06:20:35
Before we signed Thiago, I was sure that we had to sell Gini and probably Grujic to make space. Before Jota, I would have thought we'd need to move on one or two from the attacking trio before we brought one in.

I am sure there will be sales, but I am now taking a wait and see approach to any future incomings.

23 Sep 2020 06:27:53
I'm all for strength and depth, I have a theory that Sarr is purely financial. As the fee is relatively low and the guy is young and talented I think they are looking at it saying "if this guy does well when he plays we can double our money in 2 years"

If it fails you'll still get a pretty penny due to age and reputation.

23 Sep 2020 06:42:09
Or maybe we are expecting Mane or Salah to leave next year so getting Sarr on a cheap now can lessen the blow.

23 Sep 2020 07:59:27
Sarr will join if watford can get the asking price down.
I can understand why club is looking to sign players. And i see sarr as a important signing.

23 Sep 2020 09:13:30
I wouldn't close the chapter on transfers just yet. Still two weeks to go and we saw what happened in just two days. Jota has come in, Brewster is still not gone, and lots of talk about Sarr. To me, if Brewster is not gone soon and Sarr comes in, it means one of Salah or Mané is going, and going now, not next summer. Nobody knows what's going on behind closed doors.

23 Sep 2020 10:52:25
Indeed, nobody knows what goes on behind close doors but I doubt that either Salah or Mane want a move as they are already at the best team in the world. I don't think selling either of them would go down well with most of the support. We could probably get Sarr by flogging Divock, Shaq and maybe someone like Woodburn but I reckon if the club is looking at anyone at the moment it's likely to be a decent CB. Cheers.

Saar makes sense to buy if we are looking to the future, we know both Salah and Mane's reps have been in contact with the likes of Barcelona and Madrid in the past. Both will be 29 turning 30 after this season, so selling one of these before their value likely starts to decline majorly wouldn't be a shock. Won't want to be left needing to replace both the year after either. That said 4/ 5 need to leave or are spending the year playing reserves.

23 Sep 2020 20:13:54
I get what you guys are saying but we only competed realistically in the league last season if we want to compete on more fronts then we need the quality in depth particularly in attack, the high energy area of the pitch I can see Klopp going for Sarr to bolster the front three so we can perform mor consistently on all fronts and not have to rely on kids in lower comps.

Sarr isn't ready for Liverpool. So buy him now, and make him ready later!
