Rhian Brewster represents the most high-profile name after reportedly attracting the attention of at least six Premier League clubs.

The 20-year-old spent the second half of the 2019/20 campaign on loan with Steve Cooper at Swansea City and was a major influence on the team’s late playoff push.

During 20 Championship appearances, Brewster managed to clock up 11 goals for the Swans who missed out on a trip to Wembley following their semi-final defeat to Brentford earlier this month.

According to the report, Aston Villa, Newcastle, Burnley, Brighton, Fulham and Crystal Palace are all interested in taking Brewster on loan next season.

Liverpool are open to the prospect of allowing Brewster to enjoy another loan spell away from the Reds permitted that the young striker will be ensured appropriate game time.

Jurgen Klopp will give Brewster the opportunity to showcase his credentials in the next few weeks with the youngster currently among the German manager’s squad at their pre-season training camp in Austria and will feature in the Reds’ behind-closed-doors friendly fixtures ahead of the new Premier League campaign.

A fixture against Austrian outfit Red Bull Salzburg has already been touted by The Echo with talks currently underway while the prospect of playing German side Stuttgart also remains a possibility.

Confirmed and potential Liverpool departures

In other news, Liverpool left-back Adam Lewis recently sealed a loan switch to France with Ligue 2 side Amiens.

The 20-year-old made his senior debut for the Reds during a pre-season game with Shrewsbury Town earlier this year and will complete a season-long loan with opportunities limited defensively in the left-back department at Liverpool following the signing of Kostas Tsimikas from Olympiacos.

Goal also report that Ben Woodburn’s Liverpool future also remains under question with another loan move seemingly the preferred option for the Reds.

Woodburn, 20, is being monitored by both Portsmouth and Ipswich in League One following an impressive spell with Oxford United which unfortunately was hindered by a broken foot last season.

Liverpool winger Sheyi Ojo could also be allowed to leave the club this summer although a loan move or a permanent exit are yet to be negotiated.

The England U21 manager spent last season with his former Liverpool U18s manager Steven Gerrard during a season-long loan with Rangers yet Ojo could be set to remain in England for the 2020/21 campaign with both Nottingham Forest, Huddersfield and Reading monitoring the 23-year-old’s situation.

Goalkeeper Kamil Grabara is also another Liverpool talent that is likely to be loaned out with limited opportunities currently between the sticks at Anfield.

The Reds currently boast the likes of Alisson Becker, Adrian, Caoimhín Kelleher in the goalkeeping department while Loris Karius has also returned from a two-year loan spell with Besiktas. Andy Lonergan could also feature next season if the football league veteran is handed a contract extension.

Grabara, 21, made a big impression during his spell with Huddersfield last season and another loan looks likely with the Polish goalkeeper attracting attention from the likes of PAOK and Hamburg currently monitoring the player’s situation.

Liverpool midfielder Herbie Kane remains an ambiguous prospect for next season after an ill-timed injury during a loan spell with Hull City has hampered his chances of securing a move to a football league club for the 2020/21 campaign.

The Bristol-born midfielder is still recovering from a back injury that he sustained during his time with Hull and manager Grant McCann whom Kane also endured a loan spell with at Doncaster Rovers during the 2018/19 campaign.

Goal have recently claimed that Kane has undergone surgery following a back problem that has limited the youngster to just seven Championship appearances in 2020 and has seen him out of action since February.

The midfielder is expected to be sidelined until the end of September, which may scupper his chances of a move away from Anfield considering first-team opportunities already seem limited.
