Ismaïla Sarr will finally join Senegal. Initially held back by Watford, which claims that its player is injured, the English club has finally agreed, according to The Athletic, to let the winger fly to Africa for medical examinations.

Absent from the field for several weeks because of a knee ligament injury, Ismaïla Sarr (23) will join Senegal and perform medical examinations. Initially held back by Watford, The Athletic assures that the 17th of the Premier League has finally authorized the winger to join his selection. But his participation in the African Cup of Nations is not completely assured.

The English media says that this decision follows the numerous pressures suffered by the English club. Notably from the Senegalese Football Federation, which via a statement had “informed of its decision to refer to the competent bodies of FIFA in case of persistence by Watford in its deliberate refusal to release the player to his national team.

Watford expects Sarr to return

Although the club coached by Claudio Ranieri has finally agreed to the departure of the former Rennes, the training remains convinced that the Senegalese will not stay long in Africa. The English press claims that Sarr will meet with the Senegalese medical staff to assess the severity of his injury.

Watford would expect to see the 23-year-old player back in England soon when the medical results come in. This would confirm the statements of the leaders a few days ago about the health status of the Senegalese: “Ismaila Sarr suffered a knee ligament injury on November 20 during the game against Manchester United (…) We have informed the Federation of the rehabilitation process of Ismaila and the likely timetable for his recovery.”
