Liverpool will meet with at least three clubs including Swansea and Leeds over the coming weekend to discuss the potential January exits of Curtis Jones and Rhian Brewster, according to a report.

The pair have been on the fringes of the Liverpool team this season, both playing twice in the EFL Cup and appearing on the bench for a total of three Champions League group stage games.

Jones, meanwhile, made his Premier League debut against Bournemouth earlier this month, coming on for 14 minutes when Jurgen Klopp’s side were cruising at 3-0.

Recent reports have suggested that Klopp has changed his mind about Brewster, having originally wanted him to get experience training and working with the first team.

Indeed, Sheffield Wednesday have been linked with a move for the 19-year-old in January, while Crystal Palace have also been credited with interest.

According to Goal, the Reds have decided that allowing Brewster and Jones to leave on loan in the winter window would be the best option to further their development.

The source says that the club are to meet with “at least three interested parties”, adding that Herbie Kane is another youngster who could be allowed to leave.

Kane, who was named in the League One team of the season last term while on loan with Doncaster Rovers, made his first start for made his first start for Liverpool in Tuesday’s defeat to Aston Villa.

It is thought that the Reds are prepared to allow the 22-year-old leave on a permanent deal but a loan exit seems more likely.

In other Liverpool transfer news, the club are reportedly tracking the progress of Juventus winger Federico Bernardeschi.



Reports in Italy claim that the Italian could leave if the Turin giants receive an “important offer” from Klopp’s side.

However, with RB Salzburg’s Takumi Minamino close to securing his move to Anfield on January 1, it is doubted whether the Reds would sanction such a move.

Bernadeschi has been in and out of Maurizio Sarri’s Juve team, having been unable to complete 90 minutes since October.
