iverpool had agreed personal terms with Watford attacker Ismaila Sarr in January, it has been revealed.
Sarr was on the verge of joining Liverpool in the January transfer window before the Premier League champions balked at his £35 million price-tag, according to his agent Thierno Seydi.
Seydi told PanAfrican Football: “With Liverpool, a few days ago, we were at the stage of signing the contract to bind the Reds to Ismaila Sarr.
“Everything was done, the monthly salary and the length of the contract. I even asked Sadio Mane to find him an apartment.
“But, in the end, the English club could not put 40 million euros (£35 million) on the table to finalise this case.”
