Rangers hoping personal touch helps them lure Liverpool forward

Rangers are hoping to lure Rhian Brewster away from Swansea for next season, according to reports.

Football Insider reported at the start of the month that Liverpool forward Brewster was a top target for Steven Gerrard this summer.

The Scottish Sun now also claim that Gerrard is keen on signing the 20-year-old, who is currently on loan at Championship side Swansea.

Brewster signed for the Swans in January after struggling to get into Jurgen Klopp’s first-team plans. He was included in Liverpool’s squad for the Champions League, the UEFA Super Cup and the Club World Cup double-header, but only played in the EFL Cup and League Cup.

He has scored four goals in 11 games for Swansea and is expected to remain in Wales until the end of the delayed season.

Now Gerrard is keen to add the England youth player to his squad for next season with question marks over the future of Alfredo Morelos.

Swansea are though to be keen to take him on loan again, but the lure of playing for Gerrard and Brewster’s former coach Michael Beale might be too strong.

Brewster played under Gerrard during his time in charge of the Under-18 side, while the attacker also worked with Ibrox coach Beale at Chelsea before moving up to Merseyside six years ago.

 

 

 

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has been happy to send Ryan Kent, Sheyi Ojo and Ovie Ejaria north in recent seasons and he could opt for Brewster to follow that trio to Ibrox.

Undoubtedly Klopp would like Brewster to taste Premier League football, but if the offers are not forthcoming then he may well sanction the striker’s move north, as he bids to get him up to speed with the Premier League.
