ARSENAL TARGET BATTLES MESSI, RONALDO FOR GOAL OF THE SEASON

Arsenal transfer target Ismaila Sarr is up against Juventus forward Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi who plays for Barcelona, Chelsea’s Pedro and six other players for the 2018-19 Uefa Goal of the Season. The Senegal international scored a stunning goal in the group stage of the Uefa Europa League last season against Jablonec to earn the nomination.
The 21-year-old winger opened the scoring for the French Ligue 1 side by firing in his volley from outside of the penalty area after a brilliant one-two pass with teammate Benjamin Andre.
Sarr was linked with a move to the Gunners after a wonderful display against Unai Emery’s side in the UEFA Europa League. He crowned his stunning performance against Arsenal with a goal.
The Rennais star stands as the only African player in the shortlist, which also includes Apollon’s David Faupala, France U17 star Enzo Millot, Sporting Lisbon’s Nani, Messi’s teammate Ivan Rakitic, Slavia Praha’s Katerina Svitkova, and Portugal’s Danilo.
Rennes progressed out of Group K but they were eventually knocked out of the European tournament by Arsenal in the Round of 16. In the 2018-19 season, Sarr scored 10 goals in 46 games across all competitions for Rennes, and he is currently linked with a move to another Premier League side Watford.
