18-year-old midfielder one of best young players in France and is Valued at €40m, so he will not be coming cheap
Sarr is one of the most exciting talents in French football right now and it is very easy to see just why the club, and many other clubs, are interested in trying to get a deal all done
It will be interesting to see where he ends up if he does leave the club this transfer window, as the next move that he makes in his career could define what level he will reach over the next few years
And £40 million is alot of money to splash on the talent right? Especially as he still has alot to prove in the game
