It’s been a dream season for Liverpool thus far. The Reds sit comfortably atop the league table after dispatching Everton 5-2 in the Merseyside derby yesterday. They maintain their 8 point advantage over Ayoze Perez and Leicester City in second and have won 14 of their 15 matches this campaign with one draw.
Their dominance has seen promising youngster Rhian Brewster not get much time on the pitch this season, however. The 19-year-old wonderkid has yet to make a Premier League appearance for Liverpool though he did start both Carabao Cup victories this season.
Due to the need for playing time to aid in his development, Jurgen Klopp is now open to allowing the striker to move on loan in the January window. The queue for the England under-21 international is getting quite long and now somewhat prestigious.
Rhian Brewster– Klopp to allow loan move for future star
In addition to Leeds and Swansea in the Championship, both Aston Villa and Crystal Palace have reportedly expressed interest in bringing Brewster in on loan for the remainder of the season.
It doesn’t end there as Bundesliga leaders Borussia Monchengladbach and also Klopp’s old club Dortmund have joined the race for the highly-rated youngster.
With Newcastle short on goals and the player not taking up a squad place at only 19, we wonder if Newcastle will try to make a move to get Brewster in on loan.
He would be a solid addition, though the issue could be that Liverpool would demand Brewster get a certain number of games, and that is always a dicey proposition with loan players.
This is one to keep an eye out on as the youngster is an immense talent and could provide Newcastle a very good option at striker.
