Pires: Ismaili Sarr style suits Emery's Arsenal

Arsenal hero Robert Pires is backing their move for Rennes winger Ismaili Sarr.

It's been revealed Arsenal directors asked after Sarr last week following their Europa League first-leg defeat.

Pires told Sport24: "Ismaila Sarr? It would not hurt Arsenal to sign him, but I do not know his price (laughs).

"He has the profile to evolve at the Gunners. He would adapt quickly to the way of play wanted by Unai Emery. He is a wide player, a dribbler who runs fast and is able to score. I appreciate him very much.

"Rennes has good players. That's why I'm not surprised by their performance in the first leg."
