Watford attacker Ismaila Sarr a top target for Crystal Palace

Watford attacker Ismaila Sarr is a top target for Crystal Palace.

The Sun says Palace want Sarr to fill the boots of Wilfried Zaha — if their talisman is sold this summer.

Sarr was on Palace's radar a year ago when Hornets splashed out £30m to bring the Senegalese star from French side Rennes.

Ironically their failure to sell Zaha to his admirers 12 months ago cost them that swoop, but this time they will try again.

Sarr was outstanding despite Watford's relegation and he will want to stay in the Premier League or go abroad rather than the Championship.

Eagles also like Dwight McNeil, 20, for the Zaha role but they have missed the boat with the Burnley star who is chased by bigger clubs.
