Tottenham facing Klopp U-turn over plans to set deadly striker free in Prem

Rhian Brewster James Milner TEAMtalk

Tottenham are targeting a move for Liverpool striker Rhian Brewster in a bid to find back-up for Harry Kane, according to a report.

Spurs want new additions up front as they look to provide cover for Harry Kane. The England talisman spent three months of last season on the sidelines with a serious hamstring injury.

Earlier speculation has suggested that Bournemouth forward Callum Wilson is a target for Tottenham. The north London club could strike a cheap deal, given the Cherries’ relegation.

According to another report from Football Insider, however, Brewster is also on Spurs’ radar of options. The 20-year-old recently rejoined the Reds after a stunning loan spell at Swansea.

The Englishman scored 11 goals in 22 games for the Championship side, a fantastic return to form after a lack of game time earlier in the season followed an earlier injury.

Previous reports have claimed Klopp is willing to send Brewster down the same pathway as Harry Wilson; the Wales winger signed up to a Premier League loan with Bournemouth after his spell with Championship side Derby.

Klopp could allegedly now allow Brewster to make his own step up, with the likes of Burnley and Newcastle keen.

However, should Tottenham come calling, Football Insider claims Klopp could say no.

The German coach could have reservations about allowing him to flourish at a top rival. What’s more, there is concern about how much game time he would receive under Jose Mourinho.

Spurs are facing a potentially packed schedule, which could help his chances if he did move.


Meanwhile, other reports claim Tottenham remain keen on a move for Ivory Coast star Ibrahim Sangare.

The 22-year-old impressed for Toulouse in Ligue 1 last season in his 25 appearances.

However, with his side’s relegation, the door has allegedly opened for a new move.
