According to a report from The Sun, interest is mounting in Liverpool’s Rhian Brewster given he has yet to pen a contract with the Reds. The 18-year-old has been making a name for himself at youth level in the last few years to suggest that he has got a huge future in the game, hence the likes of Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain are reportedly seeking to take advantage of his uncertain contract situation.
And while Reds fans up and down the country have been excited by the deal to bring Naby Keita to Anfield this summer, securing an agreement with one of England’s brightest sparks in Brewster is just as important to Liverpool as that particular deal.
Ultimately, it looked for all the world that 18-year-old Brewster would pen a new deal with the Reds back in June, with reports suggesting that the forward had agreed a contract with the Merseyside giants.
But he has yet to officially put pen to paper to keep his future far from certain, hence the interest from European heavyweights Juventus and PSG is something that must be of concern to manager Jurgen Klopp.
And that’s because Brewster is comfortably one of the most talented youngsters in the country having helped England win the Under-17 World Cup last summer, winning the Golden Boot award after netting eight goals for the Three Lions.
And with five goals and seven assists for Liverpool’s development squad in Premier League 2 last season, alongside one strike in their UEFA Youth League campaign under Steven Gerrard for the Under-19s, it’s clear that Brewster is slowly but surely edging his way closer towards first team football.
And given his enormous talent and undoubted potential, Liverpool have to do all they can to retain the 18-year-old, as letting him go this early in his development could turn out to be a cataclysmic move given just how good Brewster can become.
Yes, Keita’s addition to the Reds squad is an exciting one and one that will surely serve to help Klopp’s side in their quest for trophies next season, but with the Liverpool boss clearly readying things for an even brighter future at Anfield, retaining one of the best young players at the club is just as important this summer.
