Watford Looking To Snap Up Two More Players Before Transfer Deadline

Watford have been one of the surprises of the 15/16 season as they began the season as one of the favourites to be fighting a relegation battle, but they are now sitting in a healthy 10th position on 32 points which puts them 11 points away from the relegation zone and only 10 points off a Champions League spot.

Watford manager Quique Flores has been busy in this current window as his club already signed Nordin Amrabat and Costel Pantilimon but he is now looking to sign Mario Suarez and Jerome Sinclair before the deadline next week. 

Mario Suarez

Mario Suarez has been linked with a move to Liverpool on a couple of occasions in the last couple of years but the Anfield club never made an official approach for the defensive midfielder.

The Spanish midfielder enjoyed 5 successful years at Atletico Madrid where he played 121 league games and scored 4 goals in the La Liga. Suarez also enjoyed winning a La Liga title, a Europa League, two Super Cups, Copa del Rey and a Supercopa de Espana during his time at Atleti.

The midfielder moved on to Fiorentina in 2015 but has now been told that he is not guaranteed playing time at the club which has forced the Spaniard to move on once again.

This grabbed the attention of Watford boss Flores who has worked with Mario Suarez before during his time in Spain where he managed Atletico Madrid from 2009-2011. Flores knows that Mario Suarez can bring experience, physical strength and tenacity to his team.

Mario Suarez has already agreed personal terms with Watford and is expected to land in the UK on Thursday to finalise his move to Watford by completing a successful medical in a deal rumoured to be worth in the region of £4.1m.

Jerome Sinclair

Sinclair has been clear that he wants to leave Liverpool this month as he is struggling to break into the first team on a regular basis.

Klopp explained in a press conference earlier this month that Sinclair still has plenty to learn and explained that the reason he couldn’t break into the first team just yet is because he is not physically ready as he stated,

“Physically it is not easy for Sinclair to survive in a central position in a Premier League game vs six feet four inch defenders. It is not important to get the highest wages in your life. Education is more important than high wages”.

Klopp hinted that Liverpool want to keep Sinclair and help him develop further as a player but he may be looking to force a move out of Anfield due to lack of opportunities within the first team. Liverpool signed Sinclair from West Brom when he was only 14 year old.

On the 26th of September 2012, Sinclair became the youngest Liverpool player ever to make his debut when he came on in a League Cup game against West Brom at the age of 16 years and 6 days.

The youngster didn’t make much progress from then on but impressed at youth level where he scored 22 goals for youth teams at Liverpool including 6 goals in 7 UEFA Youth League games. The striker had a brief loan spell at Wigan in 2015 from March until May and he returned to Liverpool to make his Premier League debut against Chelsea as a 68th minute substitute on the 10th of May 2015.

Recently, Sinclair made his full debut for Liverpool in their FA Cup tie away to Exeter on the 8th of January 2016 where he managed to score in their 2-2 draw.

Many were hoping that the youngster would be about to break into the first team but instead he declared that he would be looking for a move away from Anfield. At first, Sinclair was eyeing a move to Spain but now he is being heavily linked with a transfer to Watford.

According to the Daily Mail, Watford have tabled a £3m offer for the striker and have started official negotiations with Liverpool.
