Liverpool striker Rhian Brewster appears to heading for the Anfield exit.
The 20-year-old was reported by Sky Sports yesterday to be a possible permanent outgoing at the club, while The Telegraph has today claimed a return to Swansea City on loan is possible.
Brewster has only recently been talking about his hopes to make an impact at Anfield in 2020/21, but it seems he may not get his wish.
Roberto Firmino is still very much the number one striker for Liverpool, with Sadio Mane and Mo Salah also both playing through the middle on occasion.
And January signing Takumi Minamino can also operate as a false nine.
Many Liverpool fans don’t want to see the back of Brewster before he’s been given a proper first-team chance.
And certainly, the youngster can feel hard done by if he is sold before another attacker who has had many opportunities for the Reds.
TBR’s View – Origi should depart before Brewster
The possibility of Brewster leaving the club before Divock Origi is a strange one.
It’s all gone quiet quite on the front of the Belgian’s future, suggesting that he might be staying put for another season at Anfield.
The £45,000-a-week star’s (Spotrac) heroics in the 2018/19 Champions League will never be forgotten and his popularity won’t wane, but sentiment surely cannot get in the way.
Realistically, there are question marks about Origi’s consistency and his ability to push Firmino, Mane and Salah for a starting berth.
Brewster has shown how clinical he can be at Swansea last term and with the England U21s and surely deserves a proper shot.
