Liverpool have dominated headlines on the transfer front this week amidst rumours they will move for Bayern Munich's Mario Gotze this summer.

This time around, however, they're at the centre of attention regarding potential departures.

The Guardian reports that fellow Premier League side Watford are planning a double swoop for the out-of-favour Jordan Ibe and Joe Allen as they look to bolster their squad ahead of another exciting season in the top-flight.

Allen, who will enter the final 12 months of his contract this summer, has flattered to deceive when called upon by Jurgen Klopp - and a contract extension appears unlikely.

A move to Vicarage Road under Quique Sanchez Flores would arguably be a smart move for the Welshman in order to resurrect his career and rediscover the kind of form that saw him leave Swansea for Liverpool in the first place.

As for Ibe, the youngster has endured a topsy-turvy season at Anfield having failed to live up expectations when given a run in the first team.

He's fallen down the pecking order on Merseyside as a result, with Adam Lallana, Philippe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino all securing regular places in Klopp's starting XI.

Elsewhere, it seems Watford are already on the brink of bringing another Liverpool starlet to Hertfordshire, with 19-year-old Jerome Sinclair reportedly agreeing to sign for the Hornets this summer with the view to provide competition for Troy Deeney and Odion Ighalo.

The trio's potential departures would likely tie in with Klopp's ambition to build a Liverpool squad to his liking - and one capable of bringing glory back to Anfield.
