Liverpool striker Jerome Sinclair has agreed to leave the Anfield giants this summer and will join Watford.
The highly talented young striker is out of contract in June and will join the Premier League outfit on a free transfer. However, Liverpool are set to receive a fee through tribunal because of the player’s age (under 21).
Watford submitted a bid of around 3 million pounds in January for the talented frontman, but Liverpool rejected the bid and started to initiate talks for a contract extension.
It seems that the English forward is not too keen on staying at Anfield beyond this summer. Sinclair has reportedly agreed a 3-year-deal with Watford.
Sinclair is represented by Aidy Ward, the agent who orchestrated Raheem Sterling’s move to Manchester City last season.
Sinclair is one of the best youth players at Liverpool and the fans will certainly be disappointed with him leaving them. Liverpool could also lose the likes of Jordan Rossiter this summer.
His departure is a bit of surprise considering how good Jurgen Klopp is at developing young players. Furthermore, joining Watford is a massive step down for Sinclair.
The young forward scored his first senior goal for Liverpool against Exeter this season and is also the youngest ever debutant in the history of the club. Sinclair has attracted a lot of attention from other Premier League sides due to his explosive style of play. He can also operate out wide as well as a central striker.
