Rhian Brewster’s unbelievable potential could be the reason why Liverpool aren’t launching an all-out charm offensive to sign the likes of Philippe Coutinho or Nicolas Pepe.

Friendly wins over Tranmere Rovers and Bradford City have allowed fans the chance to see the club’s most exciting young players in action against senior players.

One player that has unsurprisingly taken the opportunity by the scruff of the neck is Rhian Brewster.

The 19-year-old has scored three goals in his two appearances of the summer so far and will be desperate to take to the field this weekend as the Reds get set to face Borussia Dortmund in their first friendly on their American tour.

 

With Jurgen Klopp seemingly not eyeing any major summer moves for the likes of Philippe Coutinho, Nicolas Pepe or Timo Werner, it could be that this is due to him wanting to give Brewster a fair chance.

The Reds are in need of another body to provide depth in attack after the club released Daniel Sturridge at the end of last season but Brewster will seem like a new signing after he was out for the entirety of last season with injury.

With Sadio Mane certain to miss the start of the Premier League season given his AFCON involvement while Mo Salah and Roberto Firmino could be absent as well, Brewster may well make his Liverpool debut against Norwich City.

If the start of the season arrives without any major signings being made in attack, Brewster will head into the season with the chance to make a huge impression on English football.
