Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp will have a decision to make regarding youngster Rhian Brewster, as Swansea City are reportedly keen on having him on loan again next season.
The Reds allowed the talented England youth star to head out on loan to the Liberty Stadium in January to gain first-team experience in the Championship.
Brewster joined up with his World Cup-winning
Under-17 England coach Steve Cooper in South Wales and has impressed, scoring four goals in 11 games before football was suspended due to the global health crisis.
According to The Telegraph, he has already convinced Swansea to try and bring him in again for the 2020-21 season. The report claims Klopp ‘will assess’ the situation, deciding whether a full season in the Championship will be more beneficial than training regularly with the Liverpool first-team.
Klopp is known to be a big fan of Brewster. The German denied a loan move for the player last summer as he wanted him to fully recover from a serious ankle injury before making such a move. As reported by The Independent, Klopp spoke very warmly of Brewster’s talents at the time.
“I love the boy, he is [a] fantastic player. Why should I play it down?”
“Rhian Brewster is a top striker, he is a top talent and I have told him already that he has an important role this year – but how important depends on him.”
It was also reported by the Liverpool Echo in the summer of 2018 that Klopp shelved plans to sign German international Timo Werner as he felt Brewster was ready for the first-team.
Injuries delayed that from being the case but now, two years down the line, Liverpool are again said to be in the running for the £51 million (Daily Mail) German and Brewster is wanted elsewhere.
It will be interesting to see if Klopp once again decides to go with Brewster or believes the time is not quite right and lures the RB Leipzig star to Anfield.
