Liverpool threaten Arsenal plans for Rennes dazzler Sarr - thanks to Mane

Liverpool are jumping into the battle for Rennes dazzler Ismaili Sarr.

The Mirror says Arsenal will face competition from Liverpool to try and land 21-year-old Rennes winger Sarr.

The Senegalese attacker has emerged as a target for Jurgen Klopp at Anfield after Unai Emery had to put off a January move until the summer due to their financial constraints.

There is now a risk they could miss out on the pacey youngster, who has bagged 11 goals in Ligue 1 this campaign.

The presence of Sadio Mane could have a big impact on a potential move to Liverpool as Sarr is offered the chance to link up with his Senegal team-mate.

The 20-cap attacker has previously labelled Mane as a "role model" and admitted he'd love to follow in his footsteps.
