Liverpool make Rhian Brewster transfer decision as Tottenham seek Harry Kane back-up


Tottenham Hotspur’s chances of signing Liverpool starlet Rhian Brewster have been given a boost.

Spurs have been linked with the young forward as they look to sign a back-up for starting frontman Harry Kane.

The only issue was that Liverpool hadn’t decided whether or not they wanted to sell or even loan out Brewster this season.

The 20-year-old scored 10 times in 20 league appearances in the Championship with Swansea City last season, and he was given the opportunity to impress in pre-season with Liverpool.

And while Liverpool aren’t totally decided on whether or not to keep Brewster, according to the Liverpool Echo, they are open to selling him this summer.

The report claims the Reds haven’t made a ‘concrete decision’ but they are fielding interest.

That could alert Tottenham as they seek out that number two striker, though they are yet to get in touch with Liverpool.

Aston Villa, Newcastle, Burnley, Brighton, Crystal Palace, Fulham, Sheffield United, Bournemouth and Norwich City have all made enquiries, according to the report.

Spurs aren’t mentioned, but should they make a move, they would likely have an advantage over all of those clubs, able to offer European football and, of course, they will likely challenge at the top end of the Premier League.

Liverpool have preferred the option of loaning Brewster out, given his evident potential, but it’s now understood he could be sold as they look to increase their transfer budget for the new season.

Though, there may be a catch in that the Reds may not part ways with Brewster, who is valued at around £20m, unless there is a buy-back clause in any sale contract.
