Kevin Phillips has suggested that up and coming Liverpool striker Rhian Brewster could join West Bromwich Albion on loan next season.
The 20-year-old joined Swansea City in January and has made a fast start to life at the South Wales club – scoring four times in 11 Championship games.
A product of the Liverpool academy, Brewster has a hugely impressive record for the Reds U23s, having grabbed 13 goals and 10 assists in 28 Premier League 2 games.
The striker has featured just three times for the Liverpool senior side and given the quality of their current forward line, may have to wait before he gets his chance.
Speaking to Football Insider, Phillips suggested that the 20-year-old could be at the Hawthorns and not Anfield next season.
He said: “Tammy Abraham got his chance at Chelsea in extraordinary circumstances but you will not see that at Liverpool.
“Next season the same three will be up top and Klopp might add to that. It might make it even more difficult.
“Brewster might be one that a promoted team might target, someone like a West Brom. He is not out of his depth at that level.”
West Brom are second in the Championship as things stand and look on course to secure promotion to the Premier League when the season resumes.
None of their strikers have been hugely convincing this season and Hal Robson-Kanu is the only one to have hit double figures in league goals.

This looks like a move that would make a lot of sense. Brewster is unlikely to get much of a chance at Liverpool, so going out on loan could be a smart decision for all involved.
If the Baggies are in the top flight, the 20-year-old would be able to gain some valuable Premier League experience before returning back to Anfield.
The forward line is an area that Slaven Bilic will surely look to improve in the summer, as the signings of Kenneth Zohore and Charlie Austin haven’t worked out so far.
It will be interesting to see if this one has any legs once the transfer window opens.
