Tottenham Hotspur are one of the teams who look set to miss out on Rhian Brewster, with the Sheffield Star reporting that Jurgen Klopp feels that the Liverpool striker would be best off at Sheffield United if he is going to leave Anfield this summer.
Brewster is attracting a lot of attention during this window. A recent report from Goal claimed that six Premier League sides want the striker.
The Sheffield Star has since reported that he is discussing a potential move to Bramall Lane. It is suggested that Liverpool want to agree a loan rather than a permanent deal for the 20-year-old.
But interestingly, the Sheffield Star has added Spurs to the list of teams that will miss out if Brewster joins Chris Wilder’s side.
TBR View: Spurs loan move would make less sense for Liverpool
It would arguably be a great piece of business for Tottenham if they could get Brewster in any capacity this season.
He looks to have an incredibly bright future ahead of him, and demonstrated his ability in senior football with 11 goals on loan at Swansea City during the second-half of last season.
But it is unsurprising that Liverpool are reportedly keen to steer him elsewhere. If he is going to leave on loan, a switch to Tottenham would be a risk.
Of course, he is versatile. But he faces a monumental task trying to get in the side ahead of Harry Kane.
There would be opportunities with Spurs potentially battling on four fronts. But you can understand why Klopp is seemingly confident that he would be better off with the Blades if he is going to leave.
