Liverpool want £3m for academy starlet – will let him leave this January

Posted by

Liverpool are looking to recoup £3m for young forward Jerome Sinclair, whose contract is out in the summer, writes Dave Maddock in the Mirror.

If Sinclair runs his deal down and leaves at the end of the season, we’d still be due a compensatory fee due to his age, but Liverpool will reportedly accept the £3m sum now to get him off our books.

Watford apparently lead the chase for the 19-year-old, who became Liverpool’s youngest ever player over three years ago under Brendan Rodgers – having just turned 16.

There were enormous hopes for Sinclair as a result, but he’s not fulfilled his early promise and isn’t a viable first-team option.

The striker did start against Exeter in the FA Cup, scoring his first senior goal in the process, but if this article is to be believed – that won’t be enough to earn him more minutes or a contract at Anfield.

Similarly, Maddock claims that Liverpool will allow Lawrence Vigoroux to join Swindon permanently, where he’s currently on loan. The keeper has little chance of emerging at Anfield due Danny Ward’s recall from loan, and the fact the Welsh 22-year-old is now above Adam Bogdan in the pecking order.
