Sterling all over again? Manchester City reportedly targeting Liverpool's Jerome Sinclair

Manchester City are reportedly targeting Liverpool teenager Jerome Sinclair.

According to The Sun, Manchester City are weighing up a move for Liverpool teenager Jerome Sinclair, who is out of contract at the end of the season.

City famously signed England international Raheem Sterling from Liverpool over the summer, in a controversial deal after playmaker Sterling had turned his back on the Reds.

Sterling is now a hated figure amongst Liverpool fans, but history could be repeating itself, with City allegedly interested in another Liverpool ace.

The Sun report that City are hoping to land Liverpool teenager Jerome Sinclair, whose contract at Anfield expires at the end of the season.

The 19-year-old joined Liverpool from West Bromwich Albion back in 2011, and he became the Reds' youngest ever player at 16 years and 6 days old in 2012 - ironically against the Baggies.

Now though, Liverpool may be facing up to life without Sinclair, with City believed to be interested in capitalising on his contract situation.

Sinclair's contract may be expiring next summer, but if he joins an English club, Liverpool will take the case to tribunal and seek a hefty compensation fee for the teenager, given that he is under the age of 24.

After the chaos surrounding Sterling's move last summer, Liverpool will be hoping that this saga is a little smoother - or, in a much better scenario, convince Sinclair to snub City and sign a new deal at Anfield.
