Report: Watford ready to pay £2m to land coveted Liverpool forward Jerome Sinclair

Watford, West Bromwich Albion and Crystal Palace have been linked with Liverpool’s Jerome Sinclair.

According to the Mirror, Watford are ready to pay £2 million to sign Liverpool’s Jerome Sinclair.

The report claims that the Liverpool forward has agreed in principle a three-year deal with Watford and the club are expected to pay the compensation fee via a tribunal panel.

Sinclair used to be on the books of West Bromwich Albion before joining Liverpool as a 14-year-old.

He has since progressed through the club’s youth ranks, impressing a number of youth team coaches and earning international recognition with the England U16 and U17 teams.

Capable of playing both as a winger and as a forward, Sinclair became the youngest ever player to feature for the Reds in the Premier League, making his senior debut six days after his 16th birthday.

But despite creating his own piece of history at Anfield, the now 19-year-old seemingly has his heart set on a switch elsewhere as he allegedly refuses to extend his contract with the club.

His situation has also alerted the likes of Crystal Palace and West Brom, yet it is Watford who appear to have won the race for his signature with a switch to Vicarage Road this summer expected to take place.

Sinclair has often drawn parallels with Raheem Sterling for his style of play, and his impending exit while not quite as dramatic or costly is taking a similar path to that of the Manchester City man.
