Liverpool youngster set for January exit after Klopp changes his mind

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is keen to allow Rhian Brewster to leave the club on loan in January after changing his mind about the youngster, according to reports.

The 19-year-old is behind the likes of Roberto Firmino and Divock Origi in the pecking order at Anfield, but Klopp blocked him from leaving on a temporary deal in the summer to give him experience of being around the first team.

Brewster has gone on to make only two appearances this term – in EFL Cup victories over MK Dons and Arsenal, respectively – while making the bench twice in the Premier League and Champions League.

According to Football Insider, Klopp has come to the realisation that Brewster is only likely to see game time in the EFL Cup and is now willing to listen to loan offers for his services in the upcoming transfer window.

The source says that Klopp wants the youngster to gain more professional experience elsewhere to boost his chances of making it in the first team, with Crystal Palace previously linked with a move.

Brewster is set to be involved in EFL Cup action again next month when the Reds take on Aston Villa, a day before another Liverpool team will play in the semi-finals of the Club World Cup in Qatar.

 

 

As well as Brewster, summer signings Sepp van den Berg and Harvey Elliott have both been heavily involved in the EFL Cup for Klopp’s side this season.
