Steve Parish has taken to Twitter to deny that Crystal Palace have made a bid for Liverpool striker Rhian Brewster following reports from Sky Sports on Monday.
Sky Sports reported that the Reds are now prepared to sell Brewster this summer. It was suggested that the Premier League champions need to fund the moves for Thiago Alcantara and Diogo Jota.
And Sky Sports claimed that Crystal Palace had made a £19 million bid plus add-ons for Brewster.
The Reds were also reportedly set to have first refusal on the 20-year-old. And Sky Sports added that a buy-back clause worth £37 million would also be included in the terms.
However, it appears that that may not be the case. Parish took to Twitter after the reports had emerged and insisted that they had not made any sort of bid for the youngster.
Here is Parish’s tweet…
We have asked Sky to take this down
as it is a total fabrication from start to finish.
We have not made a bid formal or informal. https://t.co/uIusuAsDcW

TBR View: Brewster could be an excellent target for Palace
It remains to be seen if Palace do make a bid for Brewster before the transfer window closes. There are certainly likely to be some of the supporters of the club who want the youngster to come in this summer.
He scored 11 goals on loan at Swansea City during the second-half of last season. And he is desperately unlucky to be tasked with trying to break up one of the best attacking lineups in world football right now.
But following Parish’s denial of any sort of bid being made, it would appear that there is a long way to go before Brewster’s future is resolved.
