3 reasons why Leeds United need to do all they can to win race for talented striker



Leeds United are monitoring a potential deal for Liverpool’s Rhian Brewster when the January transfer window opens.

The talented striker is regarded as one of the best English talents coming through right now and starred as the U17 side won the World Cup two years ago.

However, he has obviously found minutes hard to come by for the Premier League leaders and the Mirror are claiming that Jurgen Klopp will sanction a loan move for the player in the New Year.

They also add that Leeds will battle Swansea, Aston Villa and Crystal Palace to land Brewster.

Whilst the Premier League clubs will have an advantage because they are playing at a higher level, he may get more game time in the Championship.

And, here we look at THREE reasons why the Whites should do all they can to sign the 19-year-old…

They could lose Eddie Nketiah

Leeds could be on the lookout for a new number nine in the summer with doubts emerging over whether Eddie Nketiah will stay at Elland Road.

Arsenal may recall the player in the New Year over a lack of regular appearances, so the Yorkshire side need to plan for alternatives to come in and Brewster fits the bill.

He should suit their system

Whilst Nketiah’s situation may concern Liverpool, the chance to work under Marcelo Bielsa is an attraction.

He is a renowned coach and encourages fast, attacking football and the Reds will want to send Brewster to a club that plays that sort of style as it will help his game.

It could weaken a rival

Even though Swansea are the only Championship side linked with Brewster right now, if Liverpool do make him available in January then you can imagine a host of promotion hopefuls will register an interest.

So, not only would Brewster help Leeds, he will ensure no one else can pick him up.
