Crystal Palace are reportedly interested in signing Liverpool striker Rhian Brewster on loan in the January transfer window but face plenty of competition – and Palace fans have reacted on Twitter to the reported news.
The Sun have claimed 19-year-old Brewster is a target for Palace, with ex-Liverpool boss Roy Hodgson looking to beef up his attacking options in the January window. But it is expected that he will face competition for the England youth international.
The report claims Swansea City and Bristol City are also keen on Brewster, who joined Liverpool as a 15-year-old from Chelsea. German Bundesliga clubs are also said to be interested in landing Brewster in January.
Brewster made his second senior appearance for Liverpool on Wednesday night, after his debut came against MK Dons in the Carabao Cup earlier this season. Indeed, he started against Arsenal and worked hard before scoring in the penalty shootout.
The striker has plenty of pace and has plenty of work rate. It would give Hodgson something different from his current options, which currently include Jordan Ayew, Christian Benteke and Connor Wickham.
Crystal Palace fans reacted to the reported news that Brewster is a target for their club ahead of the January transfer window, but Palace supporters are not particularly enthused over the potential signing of Brewster on loan.

Because we must have someone in our own academy if we wanna use a kid in the squad.
He's shown nothing to suggest we need him. So I don't see the point in taking a youngster from someone else.
