Report: Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp held further talks with Chris Wilder about Rhian Brewster sale

Liverpool forward Rhian Brewster is reportedly edging closer to exiting the club, as more discussions have been held about his future.

According to the Independent, the 20-year-old has been left out of the Reds squad on Thursday night for the Carabao Cup fixture away to Lincoln City

It is claimed that Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp held further talks on Wednesday with Sheffield United boss Chris Wilder about the young striker, with the Yorkshire club leading the race at present for his signature.

The report explains that Brewster is the first-choice target for Wilder to sign in attack this summer and the Blades are hopeful of reaching an agreement before other interested clubs come calling.

 

The Independent reports that Swansea City, Aston Villa, Brighton and Crystal Palace are all potential suitors for a player that is valued at £25million by Liverpool.

TBR’s View:

Brewster is somebody that was superb last year when he joined Swansea City on loan for the second half of the season, scoring 11 goals in 22 games across all competitions for the Championship club.

It looked like it was a no-brainer to keep him as the second-choice forward in this new campaign, but £25million is brilliant money for an inexperienced player and the Merseyside giants have already signed versatile Wolves attacker Diogo Jota.

Brewster is a clinical striker to come through the Reds academy and keeping him would please many fans, but at the same time his exit could be smart for both the club and player.
