Liverpool mull over key Brewster clause with Klopp’s stance made clear

Rhian Brewster

Liverpool would not be against allowing Rhian Brewster to leave on a permanent deal before the transfer window closes, according to a report.

The 20-year-old‘s stock has risen significantly in 2020, helped mainly by a goal-laden loan spell at Swansea.

However, the Englishman has continued such form with three goals in two pre-season games for the Reds.

Several clubs, including Aston Villa and Newcastle, made their interest known earlier in the window. But both clubs have now signed other targets in Ollie Watkins and Callum Wilson, respectively.

According to The Telegraph, Brighton are another side who remain keen on a deal for Brewster. The Seagulls reportedly believe their style of play will suit the striker, however they must convince him a Premier League move this season is the right one.

Swansea also have a keen interest and are in the frame for another loan deal.

The newspaper adds that while a loan exit looks more likely, a permanent deal is still on the cards.

Should Liverpool go down the latter avenue, though, they could add a buy-back clause. This would give the Reds first refusal if Brewster’s form skyrocketed at a new club.

Rhian Brewster Liverpool TEAMtalk

What’s more, it is possible that a bid of £25million could tempt Liverpool into doing business.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp said previously he remains unsure whether to keep Brewster or allow him to leave; the attacker remains unproven in the Premier League and is yet to make his top-flight bow.

However, he has shown more promising form than the likes of Divock Origi and Xherdan Shaqiri.

In any case, The Telegraph adds that Brewster is one of the most “sought-after” players in Klopp’s squad.


Meanwhile, Dejan Lovren has revealed the gift and letter he has received from Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson.

Centre-back Lovren left for Zenit St Petersburg earlier this year after a six-year spell at Anfield.

And Henderson has personally written to him on behalf of his teammates to thank the Croatian for his service.
