Sky Sports reporter Dharmesh Sheth has said that Tottenham will likely loan out Pape Matar Sarr as long as Oliver Skipp makes a swift recovery from his injury.

Antonio Conte and his coaching staff have got their first look at Sarr during pre-season after the midfielder was loaned back to Metz for the 2021/22 campaign.

The 19-year-old featured in the club’s pre-season friendlies but was not part of Tottenham’s matchday squad for their Premier League season opener against Southampton.

Corriere della Sera reported last week that Milan hold an interest in Sarr and asserted that Tottenham would be willing to sell the midfielder permanently for a fee of around €30m (£25.1m).

Gazzetta dello Sport claimed earlier this week that the Rossoneri could accelerate their pursuit of the Senegal international after midfielder Sandro Tonali suffered an injury in the club’s pre-season friendly against Vicenza.

Sheth has now revealed that Conte plans on sending Sarr out on loan again this summer and is waiting for Skipp to return from his injury to give the green light for the youngster to leave.

The journalist said on Sky Sports Transfer Centre (10/08/22 at 13:35): “Another player they signed last summer is Pape Matar Sarr, he came from Metz, they signed him for around £14 million.

“But as part of the deal, he went back on loan to Metz for the season and he is now back at Tottenham. They are yet to decide whether he will go on loan or be part of the first team squad.

“I think they will decide towards the end of this transfer window because Yves Bissouma contracted COVID, so he missed part of the South Korea tour. He is just making his way back. 

“Oliver Skipp as well has had an injury. If he recovers and they are both recovered, up to full speed, at the end of the window, then Antonio Conte will probably decide that Sarr could go out on loan again.”

Spurs Web Opinion

Tottenham must be mindful of loaning Sarr out to a club where he will get regular game time, which might not be the case at Milan.

I do not think it will be a bad idea to send the teenager to a Championship club as he will be guaranteed to start every game and would get accustomed to the physicality and intensity of English football.
