The winger, who has also drawn interest from European giants Barcelona and Juventus, has been in high demand this summer, according to the Sun.

Sarr’s agent Thierno Seydi is reported as saying: “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 Ismaila to get him to the Premier League.

“One Italian agent asked to speak with Juventus. The price will be around 50-60 million Euros.”

Gary Lineker was among those lauding Sarr in Russia, as Senegal were cruelly knocked out in the group stages by virtue of picking up more yellow cards than Group H rivals Japan.

Seydi continued: “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 things 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.”
