According to a report from Jeunes Footeux, West Ham United is considering a move for Watford's Ismaila Sarr as the 25-year-old winger seeks an exit from his current club at the end of the season.

It is believed that Watford is open to selling Sarr for a fee of around €20 million (£17.3m). With West Ham in need of attacking reinforcements, the Senegalese international could be a valuable addition to their squad.

Having previously played in the Premier League, Sarr is expected to adapt quickly and make an immediate impact at West Ham. His experience in English football could prove to be beneficial for the London club, who are eager to bolster their attacking options.

Sarr is contracted with Watford until the summer of 2024, putting pressure on the Hornets to sell him this summer rather than risk losing him on a free transfer next year.

Watford has had a disappointing season in the Championship, currently sitting in 11th place in the table. Sarr is reportedly seeking a fresh challenge, and the opportunity to join a Premier League club like West Ham would be an appealing prospect for him.

With 11 goals and six assists in all competitions this season, Sarr has demonstrated his attacking prowess. He could potentially provide an upgrade to West Ham's current options in the final third, namely Gianluca Scamacca and Michail Antonio, who have struggled to consistently find the back of the net.

As the summer transfer window approaches, West Ham United will be hoping to secure the services of Ismaila Sarr as they aim to strengthen their squad for the upcoming Premier League campaign.
