Liverpool may reportedly be about to receive a bid for youngster Rhian Brewster from Premier League rivals Sheffield United.
According to the Telegraph, Sheffield United are preparing a £20million offer to try sign the highly-rated forward.
It is explained that the 20-year-old has been a priority for Blades manager Chris Wilder throughout the summer window and negotiations between them and Liverpool are getting closer to his £20million valuation.
The report explains that Sheffield United are open to including a buy-back clause in the deal, which would allow Liverpool to re-sign him in the future.
Brewster, who was previously on the books at Chelsea and ending up graduating from the Liverpool academy, is an excellent striker that is a deadly finisher in the box and he’s played four senior games for the Reds.
The England Under-21 international has been highly-rated by Klopp in the past, but the competition for spaces at Anfield in the first-team squad is fierce.
“I saw a really good game and Rhian is a fantastic player,” Klopp said in July 2019, as quoted by the club’s official website.
There are plenty who feel Brewster should be given his chance in the Liverpool squad this campaign, as he was superb during a loan spell at Swansea City in the second half of last season and is an intelligent striker with great movement in the box.
But his game-time would be severely limited due to the talent in the squad at Anfield, so receiving £20million for his sale with the inclusion of a buy-back clause looks like brilliant business on paper.
He could prove to be a genius signing for a Sheffield United side that need to try find more goals and Liverpool fans would be watching his career develop closely if he does leave this summer.
