The Scottish Sun have claimed that Rangers are interested in signing Liverpool striker Rhian Brewster on loan this summer – which would see Brewster form a reunion with his previous Liverpool Under-18 manager, Steven Gerrard.
Brewster, 20, has overcome a long-term injury to enjoy an excellent season so far. Making his debut and clokcing up three appearances for Liverpool have been followed by four goals in 11 Swansea appearances on loan.
The England Under-21 international, who was on the bench for last season’s Champions League final, is expected to go out on loan this summer – but has agreed to remain at Swansea until the season ends.
Rangers have already agreed three signings this summer, in the form of Ianis Hagi, Charlie Lindsay and Calvin Bassey. But they need a striker, even if Alfredo Morelos remains, and Brewster has been eyed.
The Liverpool connection with Rangers is every-growing, with Gerrard attracting the likes of Jon Flanagan, Andy Firth, Ovie Ejaria, Sheyi Ojo and Ryan Kent to Ibrox since taking over as manager from Graeme Murty.
TBR’s view – Brewster would be an exciting addition
Not only would he add plenty of quality and another source of attack to Gerrard’s side, but Brewster would also be able to learn from one of the Premier League’s best goalscorers in Jermain Defoe.
Working under Gerrard and alongside Defoe will give Brewster the perfect platform to continue his development. If the English striker can earn 25 appearances of even more on loan at Ibrox, surely he will benefit.
