The January transfer window is in full swing. The Reds have been busy bees, there’s been a couple of arrivals in the shape of Takumi Minamino and Joe Hardy. However, the best deal of the window for the club could be the Rhian Brewster loan move to Swansea City.
Steve Cooper’s Swansea City are currently sixth in the table in the Championship. The Swans are hoping to seal promotion back to the Premier League after being relegated in 2018.
It’s a tight race at the minute in the second division. Whilst the Swans are sixth, there is only five points between third and 11th in the table, with Cooper’s side two points off third place.
Liverpool announced this week that Rhian Brewster has sealed a loan move to Swansea until the end of the season. The English striker hasn’t managed to break into the first team at Anfield and with the club out of the League Cup opportunities under Jürgen Klopp were set to be limited.
The Rhian Brewster loan could transpire to be our best move of the window. The 19-year-old forward’s potential is undeniable, he is tipped to have a bright career but he does need first team football.
A temporary spell in the Championship could be the making of the young man. With superstars breaking into stardom in their teens these days, many people have questioned whether or not Brewster will cut it Anfield.
However, it is important to remember how many forwards have gone on to have successful top flight careers after cutting their teeth in the second division. Tammy Abraham tore it up at Aston Villa last season and has taken the Premier League by storm during this campaign.
The most glaring point of reference is Harry Kane. The England forward had a series of loan spells, playing at both Leyton Orient and Millwall as he looked to gain first team experience. The moves did him the world of good and he is now one of the most valuable strikers in world football.
This Rhian Brewster loan could be the turning point in his career, fingers crossed it’s for the good.
