Pape Matar Sarr is currently playing his first season at Tottenham Hotspur - and sees no country at all with the north Londoners. Now there are rumors of the Senegalese moving to Serie A.
Tottenham put almost 17 million euros on the table for Pape Matar Sarr a year and a half ago. The youngster stayed on loan at FC Metz and is now playing his first season with Spurs. The record so far: two missions over ten and 24 minutes and remarkably few squad nominations.
A loan could remedy the extremely unsatisfactory situation. According to Fabrizio Romano, Italian top flight side Salernitana are interested in Sarr and would like to loan the youngster out. "Sarr is the kind of player we need, he has the skills we want for this position," said Salernitana's sporting director Morgan de Sanctis, confirming interest in the central midfielder Rank 14 in the Italian House of Lords. In central midfield, Sarr would have a lot of competition at Salernitana. According to Romano, however, the negotiations are still in the early stages. There is probably no tendency on the part of the players yet.
