Malang Sarr: Who is the young talent pursued by Chelsea and Arsenal?
Although he has made a name for himself in Ligue 1, Malang Sarr, a young talent pursued by Chelsea and Arsenal is still a name that makes fans curious.
According to the British and French press, Chelsea and Arsenal are giving their all to the race to win Malang Sarr, a player whose contract has just expired with the southern French team, Nice.
In the latest development, Chelsea with attractive financial promises is very close to getting the signature of the 21-year-old midfielder. The Guardian, the prestigious newspaper in the land of fog reported, Sarr will join the West London team in the next 5 years.
Sarr was one of the most important factors in the defense of the southern French team last season with 19 appearances in Ligue 1. Before refusing to renew his contract, Sarr never played for any team but Nice.
Although he does not have the ideal body with a midfielder (possessing a height of 1.82 meters), in return the player born in 1999 is very good at coordinating with his teammates, thereby helping his team easily move the ball from the home field to the top.
But what makes Sarr all the more different is his flexibility when he can kick well in the center of the defense and in the left wing. In Ligue 1 2019/20, the 21-year-old player has been entrusted with the task of ensuring the safety in the left corridor many times by coach Patrick Vieira and has completed a job well.
Although he has not been called up to the national team, Sarr has in turn played for the French U16, U17, U18, U19, U20 and U21 teams. Of course, with the current advancement, Sarr’s appearance in the Les Bleus squad is only a day or two.
According to the latest update of the transfer site Transfermarkt, Sarr is valued at 16 million euros.
