Determined Liverpool starlet opens up on first team hopes for new season
Liverpool’s promising academy product Rhian Brewster has revealed he hopes to break in to Jurgen Klopp’s plans for the 2020/21 season.
Brewster has made just three appearances for the Reds so far, all of those coming last term. He featured twice in the EFL Cup, and once in the FA Cup before being loaned out to Swansea.
He impressed for the Welsh club, scoring 11 goals in 22 games as the Swans reached the Championship play-off semi-finals.
His performances have led to suggestions he is ready to play a bigger role for Liverpool in the next campaign. The Premier League champions are thought to be looking to bring in some competition to their current front three.
Ismaila Sarr has been touted as a potential signing, although the Merseyside club would have to splash out £40million to land him.
But Brewster is hoping that he will be given an opportunity to prove himself. Speaking to the Beautiful Game podcast (via the Liverpool Echo), he said: “Of course I want to be at Liverpool next season, be fighting for a spot to play. Who is not going to want to play at the home of the champions?
“Of course you’re not really wanting to go on loan but if that’s the best thing for me to do in that situation, so I’m going to get more game time then that’s what I’m going to do.
“But realistically, I want to play at Liverpool. I want to be ‘the striker’.”
The 20-year-old is currently in Austria with Liverpool as part of the Reds’ pre-season plans. And he says that he is planning to use the training camp as a chance to show what he is capable of.
“I’m just going to go to Evian and work hard and do what I can,”, he continued.
“Whatever the boss says I need to do, I’m going to accept. Whether I stay, whether I go back on loan.”
Liverpool could profit from Bayern Champions League success

The Bavarians are in the semi-finals and are now heavy favourites to go on and lift the trophy.
Ex-Red Philippe Coutinho is a part of their squad, on loan from parent club Barcelona. And it appears that Catalan club may have to pay out on ‘player-specific’ clause placed in the deal that saw the Brazilian move from Anfield to the Camp Nou.
