Liverpool have one of the deadliest attacking lineups in world football. Since Mo Salah arrived in the summer of 2017 we haven’t seen the front line tinkered with at all. Whenever fit we have lined up with the same strike partnership. As a result it is difficult to blood young strikers. This difficulty has lead to reports that Liverpool could sell Rhian Brewster this summer, it’s safe to say that some Kopites aren’t over the moon about the idea.
Rhian Brewster has been tipped for a breakthrough season at Anfield this year.
The Englishman spent the second half of the last campaign on loan at Swansea City, netting 11 goals for the Welsh side, firing them into the playoffs.
In pre-season we saw the 20-year-old at his instinctive best, bagging three goals across two friendly games, showcasing his finishing ability and intuitive positioning.
Liverpool to sell Brewster?
According to The Telegraph there are a number of Premier League clubs queuing up with Liverpool allegedly open to selling Rhian Brewster.
Aston Villa are thought to be one of the most prominent candidates as the Reds are reportedly requesting a fee of around £20m.
This would certainly be a move out of left field with many expecting the youngster to be given a shot in the first team or loaned out this season.
Liverpool fans react to Brewster rumours
Kopites would much rather that the striker was loaned out to a Premier League side.
We can not sell Brewster at this stage. He has so much potential. A loan to Crystal Palace would be a great move for him imo. He’ll get plenty of game time, gain PL experience and will be back in London which is a bonus for him.

Some a furious at the idea.
Complete joke if we permanently sell him

One supporter believes it could go down as the biggest mistake of the Jürgen Klopp era.
I think selling him would be one the worst decision in the Klopp era
Hopefully it’s false if not we will regret it massively

Others believe the move just makes no sense.
Just makes no sense to sell him too young and developing . Loan him if we can’t give him enough game time to develop him . Has outstanding potential for me

Though others are open to selling him on one condition.
20mil with a buy back clause

Whilst there is the question of whether he is the right striker to sell.
If they sell him and keep Orgi it’s a joke
