Championship promotion-chasers Leeds United are plotting a fresh bid for Liverpool forward Rhian Brewster ahead of the summer transfer window, a report from Football Insider has claimed.
Marcelo Bielsa’s side were apparently interested in a move for Brewster back in the January transfer window, when the England youth international eventually joined Leeds’ Championship rivals Swansea City on loan for the remainder of the season.
Since then, Brewster has scored four goals in 11 appearances for the Wales-based club, who are currently 11th in the Championship table, and it seems the 20-year-old’s performances are once again attracting attention from Elland Road.
According to the latest reports, Leeds are considering another move for Brewster when the transfer window reopens, when it is thought that Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp will once again be willing to let the young attacker leave Anfield on a temporary basis.
So far, Brewster has made just three appearances for Liverpool in his senior career – all of which have come in domestic cup competitions – and it has been suggested that another loan move could be on the cards next season in order to give him more game time, something Leeds could look to take advantage of.
Brewster signed a five-year contract with Liverpool back in the summer of 2018, securing his future with the Premier League leaders until the end of the 2022/23 season.
I think this would be a smart move for Leeds to make, particularly if they do indeed win promotion this season.
When you look at the options currently available to them upfront, it does seem as though they will some extra firepower if they are to make the step up to the Premier League, and Brewster does look as though he has the potential to provide that.
This is a move that would likely benefit him as well, given the opportunity to play in the top-flight next season, would likely be seen as a chance for him to prove that he has the ability to make it as a regular starter back at Liverpool at some point in the future.
