Sheffield United have been linked with a loan move for young Liverpool prospect Rhian Brewster and the latest update surrounding the player’s future might be of interest to the Blades.
According to Sky Sports, the Reds are willing to sell Brewster this summer instead of allowing him to go out on loan. The Blades are joined by several other clubs in showing an interest in the 20-year-old, including Aston Villa, Crystal Palace and Newcastle United.
However, Liverpool still believe he can succeed at Anfield and therefore, if they were to sell him, they would insert a buyback clause into the deal.
It is understandable to see why Liverpool want a buyback clause on Brewster as he clearly has an eye for goal. The forward made 22 appearances on loan at Championship side Swansea City last season and scored 11 goals, whilst averaging 2.4 shots on target per game, via WhoScored.
He looks to be a very good prospect for the future as he has won the Under-17 World Cup with England three years ago and picked up the Golden Boot in the tournament with eight goals, per Transfermarkt.
Obviously a loan move would have been cheaper for the Blades, but they could now sign one of England’s brightest young stars on a permanent deal and this could be an ideal move for the club despite any potential buyback clause.
Indeed, that might even work in favour of the Yorkshire club as they could make sure that Liverpool will have to pay more than the amount for which they may sell him and it could be great business from Sheffield United if they manage to bring in the prolific Brewster on a permanent transfer.
