But his Chelsea career hit a new low at the start of the season when he was omitted from Mauricio Pochettino’s 25-man Premier League squad.

As a result, the 25-year-old – who is believed to be on wages of £100,000-per-week – has not played a minute of football this season.

But that is set to change after Le Havre launched a late deadline day bid to sign Sarr.

The French club sit 11th in Ligue 1 and famously had Paul Pogba on their books before he first joined Manchester United in 2009.

Chelsea were also working around the clock to shift Armando Broja out on loan to Fulham.

The Albanian striker, 22, had been in demand for a temporary deadline day move amid rival interest from Wolves.

However, the Cottagers have agreed to sign Broja from their West London rivals.

The deal includes a £4million loan fee – reportedly with conditions regarding the number of minutes he plays for Fulham.

However, if Broja does not play a certain number of games when fit and available then Fulham could be forced to pay more.

Wolves had hoped to land the forward until the end of the season after agreeing the same terms with Chelsea.

Broja has instead chosen to stay in West London.
