Both Bristol City and Swansea City are said to be lining-up a January move for Liverpool’s Rhian Brewster, with the striker looking for a loan-move out of Anfield.
Liverpool and Arsenal played out one of the Carabao Cup’s most exciting games this week – a thrilling 5-5 draw which Liverpool eventually won on penalties.
One man who featured that night was 19-year-old Rhian Brewster.
Brewster made only his second appearance of the season that night, his first coming in Liverpool’s Carabao Cup match against MK Dons last month.
He’s yet to make his Premier League debut for Liverpool, but has been with the club since 2015 having previously been a part of the Chelsea youth academy.
Both Bristol City and Swansea City are said to be interested in signing the striker on-loan in January, with Crystal Palace also said to be monitoring his situation at Anfield.
Jurgen Klopp holds Brewster in very high-regards – he was the top-scorer at the under-17 World Cup in 2017, scoring back-to-back hat-tricks against Brazil and USA.
Lee Johnson though will have a decision to make come January, with Spanish striker Rodri’s short-term contract running out come the opening of the transfer window.
Who should sign Rhian Brewster?
Whilst Steve Cooper already has an on-loan striker in Bournemouth’s Sam Surridge, who’s been deployed mostly as a winger and a back-up striker to Andre Ayew.
Brewster is clearly a man with talent, and would be an asset to any Championship club.
He’d learn a lot from the Championship too and if he could put in a good show at this level, he may well be a part of Klopp’s plans next year.
