Report: Sheffield Wednesday keen on agreeing pre-contract with Liverpool’s Jerome Sinclair

Sheffield Wednesday 2

Sheffield Wednesday, Watford, Fulham and Bristol City are all keen on the Liverpool youngster.

Sheffield Wednesday have entered the race to sign Jerome Sinclair of Liverpool, the Telegraph reports.

Sinclair looks set to be leaving Anfield at the end of this season, when his contract expires, due to a lack of first-team chances he has been handed.

Jurgen Klopp gave Sinclair a chance to impress in the FA Cup, and he scored his first ever professional goal in the 2-2 draw with Exeter, but the youngster is still said to be keen on moving away from Merseyside.

Due to the high regard that the 19-year-old is held in, there are no shortage of suitors for his signature, and Sheffield Wednesday are the latest team hoping to secure the youngster’s talents.

It is claimed that the Owls want to reach a pre-contract agreement with Sinclair this month, tying him down before he moves on a free transfer at the end of the season. Wednesday would be forced to pay compensation to Liverpool for his move, but it would be cheaper than signing him this month - with the Reds said to be demanding £3 million right now.

However, they face competition for Sinclair from two other Championship sides, Fulham and Bristol City, whilst Premier League club Watford are also interested in the youngster.

It is likely that Sinclair will agree a pre-contract this month to leave Anfield, but it remains to be seen whether he opts to move to the Championship or the Premier League.
