Liverpool will allow young striker Rhian Brewster to leave the club on loan in the January transfer window, according to the Daily Star.
Brewster, 19, has featured just twice for the Reds so far this season, with both appearances coming in the Carabao Cup.
Despite a heavy fixture pile-up approaching in the winter months, Jurgen Klopp is happy to let the forward gain some experience on loan somewhere else.
In the summer, the Star reported that Klopp told Brewster he wouldn’t be leaving the club, preferring the striker to stay to provide cover in attack.
This change of heart from the Reds’ manager comes as a surprise, as one injury to Mohamed Salah left midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain playing in the front three against Crystal Palace.
Leeds United, Aston Villa, Swansea and Crystal Palace are all said to be interested in bringing Brewster in when the winter window opens in January.
He won the Golden Boot when England ran out victorious in the under-17 World Cup, lining up alongside Phil Foden, Angel Gomes and Callum Hudson-Odoi.
Despite not netting in senior action this season, Brewster has scored five times in nine youth team appearances for Liverpool.
As already alluded to, Liverpool are not exactly stacked in attack in terms of bodies, with Oxlade-Chamberlain forced to play out wide in Salah’s absence.
The Reds released Daniel Sturridge in the summer and did not replace him, while Xherdan Shaqiri has had his injury problems.
Based on that, Klopp’s change in stance with Brewster is a tad surprising.
