Could Aston Villa signing Brewster prompt flurry of goals for Wesley?

Aston Villa have recently been linked with a move for Liverpool youngster Rhian Brewster.

According to The Daily Mail, Jurgen Klopp is willing to let the striker leave on loan in January, and Villa are one of a number of clubs said to be in the hunt.

The talent, who won the U17 World Cup in 2017, has only been handed Carabao Cup appearances so far this term, with Roberto Firmino effectively irreplaceable in the starting XI.

On Monday, Villa took on Newcastle United in the Premier League and won 2-0 at Villa Park.

It was a dominant performance from the hosts, who have moved up to 15th in the table with the result.

Despite a willing display, striker Wesley finished the game without a goal to his name despite having a golden chance to score.


He came in for a lot of praise on Twitter after the game and rightly so, but some have expressed their concern over his lack of a cutting edge at the moment.

TBR’s view – Brewster a possible catalyst for Wesley?

Wesley – who has four goals in 12 appearances – is doing well enough for Villa considering it’s his first season in the Premier League and he cost around £22 million (Sky Sports).

Perhaps bringing in Brewster though would be the thing to get him firing.

Knowing there is a talented young player breathing down his neck may be the prompt he needs to improve his finishing.

But also, the more mobile Brewster could actually prove an effective playing partner for Wesley – although Smith would have to alter his system to accommodate both.
