Arsenal’s interest has been confirmed by Sarr’s compatriot, Papa Waigo. The former Senegal international confirmed Arsenal are keeping tabs on the Rennes star.
“[Sarr] was born in my city and started in my soccer school,” Waigo said. “He has talent and has shown it in France. Arsenal are following him and I’m proud of him.
“He is very fast, in one against one he is strong, but he also knows how to score.
“He is 20 years old, has to grow again but if the big ones want him, it means that he has quality.”
Sarr featured in Rennes’ Europa League win over Arsenal.
