Issue with him is he'd be absent at the AFCON at the same time we'd lose Salah and Mane. I suspect Watford will want close to or more than the £30m they paid for him.Ismaila Sarr anyone?
Just been relegated with Watford, absolutely tore us to pieces for two goals a month or so ago.
Should be a good price, would surely have a relegation clause and where better to come and learn his trade than under his mate Sadio's wing.
Definetly young enough that we wouldn't be pressing for a starting role yet but from the bench and to rotate for Cup games we could do a lot worse.
I'd be more interested to see us take another look at Joao Pedro who we were linked to heavily before. Not had many opportunities since arriving at Watford in January but their fans seem to think he's a far better player than those getting games ahead of him. Suspect his age, being relatively new to the country and the change of manager haven't helped him settle.
