Liverpool target Mane countryman

English Premier League

Sadio Mane could line up alongside one of his countrymen next season after Premier League champions Liverpool were linked with a move for Ismaila Sarr.

Reports from England suggest that the Reds are "monitoring" the 22-year-old's situation ahead of a possible move at the end of the season after his club Watford fell into the relegation zone.

With only one match remaining for the campaign, the Hornets are at risk of losing several of their star players if they are unable to avoid the drop, with Sarr said to be at the top of that list.

According to the Daily Mail, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp sees the Senegal star as a good back-up to his current attacking line, and will weigh up a cut-price offer for the forward in the event Watford are relegated.
