I've always thought he's a solid player the handful of times I've seen him. He's a hard working winger who has some pace, skill, and trickery about him. Probably a better fit for our 4th choice forward than either Origi or Shaq. If we get him, it will likely be him, Minamino, and Chambo playing as backups to our regular front 3.
Alternatively, this could be smoke and mirrors to get Watford to lower their asking price for Sarr.
