Jürgen Klopp is lucky, not only does he have the strongest team in the world but this team is set to stick together for another few years yet – he won’t need to make any dramatic changes in the near future and won’t have to think about a squad overhaul for four or five years. Having said this, the boss still needs to keep an eye on his hottest prospects, his most valuable young striker is currently on loan in the Championship. Liverpool should let Swansea keep Rhian Brewster if they win the playoffs.
Scoring short spell
Rhian Brewster joined Swansea City on loan in January following Liverpool signing Joe Hardy from Brentford.
Brewster has been in fine form for the Swans, scoring 10 goals for the Welsh side, including a screamer on the final day to help his loan club into the playoffs.
The 20-year-old was unlucky to not get on the scoresheet in the first leg of the playoff semi final with Brentford, his side went on to win the game 1-0.
Two critical games
Tonight Swansea City play the second leg of their playoff semi final with Brentford, heading to Griffin Park defending a one goal lead.
Swansea potentially face two critical games, tonight’s semi and then the final if they can hold their nerve this evening.
These two games decide the fate of the Swans for next season, if the Welsh side make it to the Premier League then this could have some impact on Liverpool’s plans for the season.
Swansea should keep Brewster
Should the Welsh side make it to the Premier League then Swansea should keep Rhian Brewster for next season.
There has been much speculation that the Englishman could become the Reds’ second choice striker for the next campaign but surely it would be better for his development if he were a first choice elsewhere in the Premier League.
Klopp could also be convinced to let Swansea keep Brewster because he would be playing under his old England youth boss Steve Cooper, a key factor in letting him go on loan there in the first place.
If Swansea fail to gain promotion then we can expect Brewster to remain at Liverpool next season, if they come up then there could be an argument for letting him stay in Wales as a first choice striker in the top flight.
At 20-years-old it is important that he gets regular first team football or we risk stalling his development.
