Ismaïla Sarr has emerged as a transfer target for Newcastle United, according to multiple reports coming out of Italy.

AC Milan are keen on bolstering their attack and Real Madrid’s Marco Asensio seems to be the ‘right’ fit for them.

That’s what are reporting and add they have alternatives to the Spaniard, and this includes the Hornets winger.

Apart from the Serie A side, there are ‘eyes of more clubs on him’ and this is when the Magpies get a mention. It’s claimed Eddie Howe’s side ‘seem to have plans to get serious’ for Sarr.

The former Rennes man’s agent, Thierno Seydi, has admitted a deal could take place in the summer, should his employer receive a convincing proposal

“We have a good exit plan. In Watford’s strategy, if the offer is attractive, nothing will prevent him from leaving but where he will go, only the future will tell us. At this precise moment, there are rumours, interest, but really nothing concrete,” Seydi told APS.

Over at, they also explain Milan are looking at the Senegal international. However, the Rossoneri will face tough competition, ‘starting with Newcastle’.

It’s claimed a fee of at least €30-40m is needed to take the player away from Vicarage Road in the next window.

The asking price will go down if Watford are relegated from the Premier League this season. They are 19th in the table with 22 points and are three points behind 17th placed Everton, who have a game in hand.
