According to an update from Sky Sports, Tottenham may well have been given a chance to sign Rhian Brewster this summer as the Reds are ‘considering’ offloading him with a buy-back clause.
Spurs are on the hunt for a back-up striker to Harry Kane, as detailed over the last fortnight, with Chris Wood, Joshua King, Darwin Nunez and Callum Wilson all having emerged as recent targets – but the latter two have recently completed moves to other clubs.
As Daniel Levy’s list of forward candidates grows more and more thin, an unlikely link came to light just under a fortnight ago in the form of Liverpool prodigy Brewster – with a report from the Sheffield Star claiming Spurs were keen on a move.
Should Spurs sign Rhian Brewster as Harry Kane's understudy
Yes, get it done Levy
No, far better options out there
Now that Jurgen Klopp and FSG’s stance has been revealed in this latest Sky Sports update, Tottenham may well have been boosted in their pursuit of an attacker who can provide strength in depth.
Bagging 11 goals in the Championship last season, while this may not be at Premier League level, Brewster could be allowed to grow and develop in north London – particularly whilst under the tutelage of a striking partner like Kane.
While Klopp would allegedly prefer he joined other clubs, depending on Levy’s potential offer, the top flight champions may be open to selling Brewster as they attempt to combat revenue losses caused by recent events.
Described as ‘exceptional’ from an early age by ex-youth coach Dan Seymour, the 20-year-old could be an unlikely coup for Tottenham ahead of the looming 2020/2021 season.
