Sports Mole rounds up all of the latest transfer news in the Championship on Friday, September 18.

Friday morning's Championship transfer talk news roundup:

Watford attacker Ismaila Sarr has reportedly emerged as a potential target for Manchester United.

The Red Devils continue to be linked with Jadon Sancho, but it remains to be seen whether the club are able to agree a deal with Borussia Dortmund before the transfer window closes on October 5.

According to The Independent, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side are currently weighing up alternatives to the England international and have identified Sarr as an option.

The report claims that the Senegal international, who is also believed to be a target for Liverpool, could be available for £30m following Watford's relegation to the Championship.

Sarr joined the Hornets from Rennes last summer and impressed during his first season in the Premier League, scoring five goals and providing six assists in 28 appearances.

The 22-year-old still has four years left to run on his contract at Vicarage Road.



Report: Arsenal set loan condition by Brentford in David Raya deal

Brentford have reportedly told Arsenal that they can only sign David Raya if they loan the goalkeeper back to them for the rest of the season.

The Gunners are seeking competition for Bernd Leno in goal after selling Emiliano Martinez to Aston Villa in a £20m deal earlier this week.

Raya has emerged as a possible option but, according to The Telegraph, Brentford have already knocked back a £10m bid from Arsenal.

Sky Sports News suggests that a transfer could still go through before the October 5 deadline, but only if Arsenal loan the Spaniard back to the promotion-chasing Bees for 2020-21.

Mikel Arteta's side are also believed to be in talks with Dijon keeper Runar Alex Runarsson, although that transfer is likely to be dependent on whether or not Raya joins.
