Swansea striker Andre Ayew says Liverpool loanee has “everything” he needs to be a “top, top player” in the years to come after his impressive spell in South Wales.

The 20-year-old moved across the UK in January after spending the first six months on the fringes at Anfield.

Indeed, his loan move came a few months after returning from a run of serious injuries last spring.

However, he has defied expectations with Steve Cooper’s side, scoring 10 goals in 20 Championship games. He proved crucial in the Swans’ late run to the Championship play-offs on Wednesday.

And Ayew says his recent form proves he can be a fantastic prospect in the future, perhaps for Reds boss Jurgen Klopp.

“Rhian has everything to play for,” he told Swansea’s official website. “He has goals, he has speed, and he has power.

“He is still young, and he has a few things to learn and improve on, but when we are talking about a pure finisher and talent in front of the goal, he has it all.

“He has everything a striker needs to get, and that is very important.

“When you are 19 or 20, and you see the season he has had. If he continues to work hard, he is going to be a top, top player.”

Brewster scored Swansea’s opener against Reading on Wednesday as the visitors dramatically overturned a five-goal swing over Nottingham Forest to take their place in the play-offs.

Forest aided that push, however, collapsing in their final fixture with a 4-1 loss to Stoke.


Brewster is one of several exciting young talents emerging at Liverpool this season.

Back at Anfield, 19-year-old Curtis Jones is likely to replace the outgoing Adam Lallana in midfield. At right-back, Neco Williams has impressed with his first-team action.

Furthermore, 17-year-old Harvey Elliott has also made strides with his first professional contract signed earlier this month.
