Liverpool line up double transfer swoop for Watford's Ismaila Sarr and Barcelona ace Ousmane Dembele on loan

LIVERPOOL are in talks with Watford’s Ismaila Sarr as part of a double swoop before transfer deadline day, reports claim.

The Premier League champions are also rumoured to have made enquiries about a loan deal for Barcelona's Ousmane Dembele. 

Jurgen Klopp’s side have already added Thiago Alcantara to their ranks with the former Bayern Munich ace coming on as a second-half sub during Liverpool’s win against Chelsea. 

And France Football claim the Merseyside giants are far from done in terms of beefing up their title-winning squad. 

Dembele, 23, and Sarr, 22, are thought to be the latest targets on the Anfield giant’s transfer shopping list, according to reports in France and Spain.

Liverpool are looking to land struggling Frenchman Dembele on a season-long loan deal before the October 5 deadline.

They are reportedly willing to offer Barcelona a loan fee for him as well paying the winger's full salary for this term. 

The former Bundesliga star, who moved to Barca from Borussia Dortmund for an eye-watering £135.5million, has battled with injuries at the Nou Camp. 

And last term he made just nine appearances for the LaLiga giants. 

Meanwhile Watford winger Sarr attracted Liverpool’s interest following his eye-catching performance when the Hornets beat the Reds 2-0 at Vicarage Road last season.

The Senegal international, who is valued at around the £40million mark, netted a brace for his team who dropped to the Championship in July.

And the former Rennes starlet netted six goals and provided six assists in 30 appearances across all competitions for the Hornets last term. 

Should Liverpool’s transfer chiefs wish to seal a deal for the Watford ace, they could face a battle from rivals Manchester United.
