Watford star Ismaila Sarr admits ‘everyone would love to play’ for Liverpool as talk of a move to Anfield this summer gathers pace.

As reported by Standard Sport on Wednesday, Liverpool are interested in signing the Senegalese international, with Watford setting an asking price of £40million .

Sarr scored twice and applied an assist in Watford’s shock victory over Liverpool at Vicarage Road last season - what was Liverpool’s first Premier League defeat of the season - and that performance doesn’t appear to have gone unnoticed by the now Premier League champions.

And Sarr admits that the chance to join Liverpool would be a ‘dream’ for any player.
