Do you think the seller knew it had a problem with starting ? It does sound like starter clutch is about to fail completely, in which case potentially expensive fix, as you've probably sussed already.

Have you tried bump starting it using the existing battery..? That would narrow down the possibilities a lot.

Problems brewing up with the sprag clutch won't make it turn over slow.
A slow starter motor will lead you to problems with the sprag clutch, but that's another thing all together.

Check everything, and every connection, in the starter circuit and service the starter motor (check / renew brushes). Do this as a matter of some urgency or you will end up with sprag problems.
