Liverpool linked with move for Manchester City midfielder

Liverpool are being linked with a move for out of favour Manchester City winger Scott Sinclair at the end of the season.

The Express are reporting that Liverpool are keen to sign the winger, who Brendan Rodgers managed at Swansea.

The 24-year-old has really failed to make any impact at City, starting just two premier league games all season, failing to score a single goal.

However Liverpool are not the only club in the race to sign Sinclair as his former club Swansea are also interested in resigning the Englishman, who moved to City for just over £6million last summer.

Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini admits that Sinclair may be allowed to leave in the transfer window, saying that he blames himself for his lack of progress.

“This situation with Sinclair is difficult because I didn’t give him a lot of chances to play. He is very unlucky. It is my fault, not his fault. A young player like Scott who is a good player deserves to play always. For him, it was a really difficult year this year,” Mancini explained.

“Scott is young and he has good quality but this year was difficult for him. I think it is better if he can have another solution. If he stays here, maybe, everything can change but I can understand his frustration in this moment because he didn’t play a lot of games. I can understand when one player can’t play often it is difficult,” the City manager added.

Swansea boss Michael Laudrup has declared his interest in the player, but remained tight lipped on whether or not the Welsh club would submit a bid.

“He [Sinclair] has quality and he has already shown it. We will see what decisions we make on that for the future. Good players in his position are always an option and he has a British passport which is another thing we have to look at in an overall perspective,” he said.
