In an otherwise stellar couple of weeks, the news that promising attacker Jerome Sinclair has reportedly agreed to sign with Watford is sure to anger Jurgen Klopp.

Sinclair first appeared for the club at just 16 in a pre-season friendly in 2012 but despite being highly thought of at the club, the England underage international became disillusioned at Anfield under Brendan Rodgers due to a lack of game time.

And despite a change of manager, it looks like Jurgen Klopp hasn't had any success in convincing Sinclair to stay, with Talksport reporting that he has signed a pre-contract agreement with Watford.

While Klopp will have wanted to hold onto the forward, Liverpool already have a lot of attackers on their books and will likely add more in the summer with the Reds reportedly set for a £100m transfer spend.

Sinclair scored his first senior goal for Liverpool when he netted in the FA Cup third round draw with Exeter back in January but was expected to leave after failing to sign a new contract.
