Sheffield United have been linked to Liverpool youngster Rhian Brewster, and there looks to be an update on this possible transfer which might excite fans of the club.
According t0 90min, the Blades have now held talks with Liverpool over signing Brewster on loan for the 2020/21 season. They are now favourites to complete a transfer despite rival interest from other Premier League clubs.
The 20 year-old made 22 appearances on loan at Championship side Swansea City last season and scored 11 goals, whilst managing on average 2.4 shots on target per game, via WhoScored.
He looks to be a very good striker for the future as he has won the U17 World Cup with England and picked up the Golden Boot in the tournament with eight goals, per Transfermarkt.
He already looks to be sharp during pre-season as well as he scored two goals in Liverpool’s 2-2 draw against RB Salzburg during a trip to Austria and he clearly looks to be very prolific, despite him being only 20 years-old.
This could be a very clever move for the Blades, as they currently have some decent forwards in their squad, including Oliver McBurnie, David McGoldrick, Billy Sharp, and Lys Mousset. However with Sharp and McGoldrick 34 and 32, they might not be ones that the club can rely on for the whole of next season and to have a good young option like Brewster would be handy to have.
