Quick question for markdavfrance

Being our resident french football expert how good is the boy sarr from Metz?

We were linked with him but now the big boys are circling . available for 40;million

Worth the money?

He’s good Smithy, a young Pogbaesque type, but 40 million is far too much IMO. Proving ones self in the French Ligue 1 is one thing, being able to cut it in the Premier league is another. It’s still early days for Sarr, but he is talented yes. The work permit issue could mean paying over the odds to get round it apparently but for 40 million I think there are probably better options out there.

What I can see happening with this 1 is someone will buy him at a price less than that £40M and loan him back to Metz, by the end of the season he might have played enough international games to make a difference for the work permit, I’d say that rules us out as our need is for a DM here and now but who knows if we ship out a few players and see it as a long term investment 🤷🏼‍♂️
