A report by the Mirror indicates Manchester City is eyeing a potential shock transfer for Liverpool’s 5-star prospect Jerome Sinclair.
City is showing great interest in the 19-year old striker after reports surfaced that Sinclair and Liverpool have not been able to agree on an extension on his expiring contract.
The Manchester based side has sent scouts to many Liverpool Under-21 games to keep tabs on the progress of the young Englishman from Birmingham.
While City is the biggest club to show interest to this point, they are not the only club in the hunt. Spain’s Espanyol and Dutch side Groningen are also keen to sign the young man in hopes of securing the services of a top prospect.
It is not known at this time if Manchester City will make a splash with a big money offer during the January transfer window or wait to see if the player can join for a minimal fee once his contract expires in the summer of 2016.
When Liverpool signed Sinclair in 2011, they compared the young player to Raheem Sterling, another massive Liverpool prospect that was transferred to Manchester City in July of 2015.
