Liverpool have rejected a £3 million offer from Watford for striker Jerome Sinclair as they intend to use him as an exchange in other deals, according to the Daily Mail.

The 19-year-old has spoken of his desire to leave Anfield this transfer window and the Hornets have been linked throughout January without making a concrete offer.

However - despite his contract expiring in the summer - The Reds have rejected a £3 million approach from Watford as they have other plans for the young striker.

The Times football correspondent, Matt Hughes, tweeted that the club had rejected a £1.5 million bid, rising to £3 million, from Watford for Sinclair because Liverpool are keen to use him as makeweight in other deals.

Despite his contract expiring, Liverpool will be due compensation if any club signs him in the summer. However, Sinclair has been linked with a move abroad to Spain or Italy, meaning that the Reds will be due a lot less money than if he remained in England.

Sinclair, who came on as a late substitute against West Ham on Saturday, pulled out of Liverpool’s Under-21 fixture today in the fear of picking up an injury ahead of a potential transfer.

Sinclair joined Liverpool from West Brom as a 14-year-old but has only made five appearances for the club during the four seasons he’s been at Anfield. He spent the latter stages of last season on loan at Wigan but only played one match.
