Man Utd, Chelsea and Man City in contact with Rennes whiz Ismaila Sarr

The Premier League's biggest clubs are chasing World Cup wonderkid Ismaila Sarr.

The Sun says the 20-year-old Rennes ace took the tournament in Russia by storm with a string of impressive performances.

The talented winger has been eyed by top sides around Europe, including Barcelona and Juventus.

It is understood Rennes want around £50m for the ex-Metz star, who has been watched by Arsenal and Liverpool.

Manchester United, Chelsea and title winners City have also sent scouts to keep an eye on The Lions ace.

Thierno Seydi, Sarr's agent, told The Sun: “He is very fast with an excellent technique. He has the same qualities as Dembele of Barcelona. They are similar players.

“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 Ismaïla to get him to the Premier League.

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