Sarr has attracted interest from Aston Villa, Everton and Chelsea during the summer. The all-action midfielder made 22 appearances in Ligue 1 last season, scoring three times.
He was only promoted to the first team in November after just one reserve-team appearance. The teenager, who made his international debut for Senegal back in March, signed a five-year contract at the French club last September.
Altogether, the midfielder has played 28 times for the French club – the latest of which came in Sunday’s 1-1 draw against Reims – scoring four times in all competitions.
