Liverpool plan to assess Rhian Brewster over the summer before making a decision on the striker’s future, with Leeds United and Swansea City both interested in a move.
Currently, Brewster is on loan with Swansea and has scored four goals in 11 outings since making the move down into the Championship.
Of course, it’ll be Liverpool’s call what happens with Brewster in the summer, with James Pearce telling The Athletic’s Q&A their plans for the youngster: “I think the plan is to assess him in pre-season and make a call then.
“He has impressed at Swansea but of course there’s a massive difference between doing well there, in the Championship, and making an impact for Liverpool.
“I can see another loan being the best option for his development, rather than sticking around as a squad player.”
The move to Swansea has been Brewster’s first proper taste of senior football, with the 20-year-old making only three appearances for Liverpool over recent seasons.
At Swansea, Brewster has scored goals against Wigan, Preston, Hull and Blackburn, keeping Steve Cooper’s side in the hunt for the play-offs.

This seems a sensible call from Liverpool, who over the summer, will want to have a closer look at how Brewster has been developing.
Then they can work out where might be best for the striker to continue his development, whether that’s Anfield, Elland Road or the Liberty Stadium.
The division promotion-chasing Leeds are in could be a deciding factor in their pursuit, whilst Swansea still have an outside chance of the play-offs and a chance of a Premier League return.
