According to reports from the Guardian, Borussia Dortmund are expected to turn up the heat in their pursuit of Liverpool youngster Rhian Brewster.

With the January transfer window looming, Brewster could be tempted with the opportunity of first-team football considering his limited chances currently at Anfield.

The 19-year-old has made just two appearances for the European champions this season – both in the EFL Cup. His manager Jurgen Klopp recently included Brewster in his 23-man squad for the FIFA Club World Cup in Qatar.

However, could Brewster’s head be turned when looking at the success of his fellow countryman Jadon Sancho since the former Manchester City player traded in England for Germany?

Both Sancho and Brewster were teammates in England U17’s World Cup triumph in 2017 although the former has emerged as one of the hottest properties in Europe whilst the latter has been ridiculed by injury and struggling for first-team opportunities.

Other Premier League clubs such as Aston Villa and Crystal Palace are also amongst those said to be interested in a loan move for Brewster. Leeds United could also join the hunt with Eddie Nketiah routed to the bench since his loan move from Arsenal.

What RTK has to say

Brewster is in a distressingly difficult position in terms of where he thinks his future will be best suited.


The former Chelsea academy prospects is one of Liverpool’s most rated youngster’s and is someone the club value dearly.

After suffering a lengthy injury that saw him out of action for the best part of a year, Klopp’s first thought was to move Brewster to Melwood alongside Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain where the two formed a close friendship.

With first-team opportunities so difficult to come by with the Reds currently European champions and Premier League leaders, Brewster could be forgiven for thinking about his career in the short-term.

Brewster undoubtedly has a future at Anfield but the question now is how long can he remain patient for with a number of Europe’s top-clubs waiting in the wings?
