Liverpool linked with African duo

English Premier League

Reigning Premier League champions Liverpool could add two more African stars to their squad this season after being linked with Ismaila Sarr and Omar Colley.

The Reds already boast a proud contingent of African players within their ranks, which includes Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah, Naby Keita and Joel Matip, but they could be adding two more stars from the continent if the latest reports are to be believed. 

According to the Daily Mirror, Jurgen Klopp's side are readying themselves to make a bid for Senegal forward Sarr following Watford's relegation to the Championship last season, although the Hornets are expected to hold out for a transfer fee of £40 million (R855 million) for the 22-year-old's services.

Last season, the former Rennes speedster famously inspired Watford to a shock 3-0 win over the Reds, who were unbeaten in the league at that stage, and he is widely expected to depart Vicarage Road before the transfer window closes.

According to HITC, Sarr is not the only African player on Liverpool's reported radar, with the Merseysiders said to be considering matching Sampdoria defender Colley's reported £10.8 million (R231 million) release clause in order to bring the Gambia star to Anfield.

The 27-year-old has impressed in Serie A since arriving at Le Samp in 2018, and would serve as the direct replacement for Croatia centre-back Dejan Lovren, who recently signed for Russian Premier League outfit Zenit St. Petersburg.
