West Brom should move for Jerome Sinclair, who Liverpool want to loan out next season

Liverpool want to loan out Jerome Sinclair next season, and West Brom could be the perfect club for him.

According to a report in the Liverpool Echo, the Reds are set to secure Jerome Sinclair to a new long-term contract, but they want to loan him out to a Premier League club next season.

An 18-year-old striker, Sinclair is held in high regard at Anfield, and he has already appeared twice for the Reds’ first-team, coming on as a 22 minute substitute last weekend in the 1-1 draw with Chelsea.

Liverpool want the youngster to agree a new contract in the coming weeks, but their plan is to send him out on loan to a Premier League club next season, to guarantee he receives consistent top level playing time so as to aid his development.

Few clubs would willingly sign an unproven forward on loan for a season, but West Brom are keen on revamping their squad, and Sinclair could be the perfect striker.

Tony Pulis will oversee his first pre-season in charge at the Hawthorns this summer, and he needs to improve the attacking force of the Baggies. Saido Berahino and Brown Ideye are too inconsistent to be the only strikers on their books, and there is a real lack of pace around the squad.

Sinclair would fix these problems, with his impressive physical attributes exaggerated by a bullish attitude to the game. He has a natural eye for goal - as seen by his six strikes in seven UEFA Youth League games - and is very talented with the ball at his feet, providing a creative threat, on top of his goal output.

He is very much a striker who plays on the shoulder of the last defender, and in a Pulis system he could really thrive. With a tall striker next to him - such as Ideye - Sinclair would be able to pounce upon second balls and rebounds to close in on the opposition goal.

The Baggies are not the richest club, and so when a player is available on loan they should take the offer up as soon as possible. Liverpool already have a good relationship with West Brom due to the success of Andre Wisdom’s loan this season, and Sinclair is the perfect player to fix the ailing offensive line-up at the Hawthorns for next season.
