The agent of Senegal winger Ismaila Sarr has revealed interest in the 2018 World Cup star from European giants such as Juventus and Barcelona.

Sarr, who plays for Ligue 1 side Stade Rennais, caught the eye with his powerful displays for the Teranga Lions at Russia 2018 – even is he was unable to inspire them into the last 16.

Thierno Seydi, Sarr’s agent, told SunSport: “He is very fast with an excellent technique. He has the same qualities as Dembele of Barcelona. They are similar players.

“I have received many calls from English and German clubs and maybe even one from Italy. Many agents from the UK have called me proposing to work with them and Ismaïla to get him to the Premier League.

“One Italian agent asked to speak with Juventus. The price will be around 50-60m Euros. We are talking about a great football player, who will play at the highest levels for the next ten years.

“I am open to discussions with all top European clubs. The important thing is that he goes in a team that makes him play. He cannot stay on the bench. Last year Barcelona wanted him. Let’s see what happens now.”

Sarr, 20, was born in Saint-Louis, Senegal and has just two seasons of top flight football under his belt, turning out for Metz in 2016/17 and Rennes in 2017/18.

He has recorded 10 goals and four assists in 55 outings (42 starts) in the French Ligue 1.
