Report: After failing to complete £40m transfer in 2021, West Ham could now sign superstar for just £17m

West Ham United are reportedly back in for Watford forward Ismaila Sarr ahead of the summer transfer window.


According to Jeunes Footeux, West Ham want to sign Ismaila Sarr, and we can pick him up for an absolute bargain – €20 million (£17 million).

The Hammers wanted to sign the 25-year-old Watford attacker in the summer of 2021 for around £40 million, but he remained at Vicarage Road in the end.

Hammers boss David Moyes desperately needs to add some pace and power to his front-line this summer.

And it seems as though the Scot could go back in for one of his old transfer targets when the summer window opens…


West Ham are apparently back in for Ismaila Sarr

Jeunes Footeux reckon that the Hammers could sign the 25-year-old Watford forward for just £17 million this summer.

Considering that he was once valued at around £40 million, that would represent unbelievably good value for West Ham.

I firmly believe that this is a deal that Moyes quite simply has to get done this summer. Sarr possesses everything that we currently lack inside the final third.

The 25-year-old has bagged 10 goals and six assists in 39 Championship appearances for Watford this season (Transfermarkt). He has 34 goals and 24 assists to his name in 131 career games for the Hornets (Transfermarkt).


Sarr can play on either wing, or even though the middle as a centre-forward. He has blistering pace and raw power in abundance.


The Athletic once described the Watford attacker as a ‘superstar’ and an ‘elite’ forward. They might have slightly over egged that one, but he is certainly a very good player.

And if West Ham sign Ismaila Sarr for just £17 million, it would be great business for us.
