Jurgen Klopp thinks Jerome Sinclair isn't strong enough to start as a striker in the Premier League at the moment so is happy to let him leave Liverpool

Liverpool striker Jerome Sinclair looks set to leave Anfield, with Watford among the clubs interested in him, Sky sources understand.

The 19-year-old has just six months left on his contract and could make the move away from Anfield during the winter transfer window.

Sinclair became Liverpool's youngest player when he came on as a substitute in a Capital One Cup game with West Bromwich aged just 16 years and six days.

He subsequently spent a short spell on loan at Wigan in the 2014-15 season, although he featured in just one game, a 2-0 defeat to Watford.

Sinclair made his first start for the Reds in their 2-2 draw at Exeter last week in the third round of the FA Cup and scored the opening goal at St James Park.

"It's not important to get the highest wages of your life in your first year, it's about getting a good education," said Klopp.

"I like Jerome, he's a good talent. If he wants to stay with us then he's welcome, if not then we can't stop it.

"We need young players who want to learn, if they feel it's the right place to learn then good. We can do that next season but not now. There's no rush.

"I cannot make decisions for them, we can only offer things and first of all education."

Watford have already been busy in the transfer window, having signed winger Nordin Amrabat from Malaga for £6.1m on Monday.

Hornets boss Quique Sanchez Flores is also understood to be trying to bring Sunderland goalkeeper Costel Pantilimon to the club.
