The oddchecker team looks at the most likely destination for Ismaïla Sarr after the transfer window closes and how the odds have changed.
It was only last week that Ismaïla Sarr finally had his move back to the Premier League, with Aston Villa agreeing a fee with Watford for the Senegalese forward. Fast forward a few days and Sarr is set to stay in the Championship after failing to agree personal terms. A move to B6 now looks very unlikely with odds drifting drastically to 20/1. With this move seemingly off, who are the new favourites to sign the winger?
Newcastle have become the clear front runners, with Eddie Howe looking to add quality to his attack. The odds of Sarr moving to the Northeast have been cut significantly over the last 24 hours from 20/1 to as short as 3/1. Following a good start to the season and the addition of Alexander Isak to his attack, is Howe about to add more fire power to his front line?

Patrick Vieira’s Palace are another side thought to be interested. They currently sit as second favourites with odds at 7/2. However, there odds were as short as 5/2 yesterday so it seems their interest in signing Conor Gallagher on a permanent bases may be taking priority.
There are other Premier League clubs thought to be keen on acquiring Sarr’s services too but none have expressed more than an interest at this moment. Everton currently sit at 18/1 with Leeds at 22/1, but both look unlikely after publicly targeting other positions.
Chelsea (25/1) and Man United (25/1) are the only ‘top six’ teams to make it onto the list of interested parties, but both look unlikely to make a move after spending heavily in the last few days, with Manchester United signing winger Antony for £85 million.
After all the drama surrounding Sarr’s future, to remain at Watford is still the bookies favourite at 2/3. This is down from 20/1 just 10 days ago and so - at this late stage - staying at Vicarage Road appears to be the most likely outcome according to the bookmakers.
