Report details Liverpool's preferred option in potential Rhian Brewster sale

If Liverpool are to sanction a move for Rhian Brewster away from Anfield this summer then the club would prefer for a permanent offer to be agreed with a buy-back clause inserted into any potential deal, claims Rob Dorsett of Sky Sports.

Brewster, 20, currently has up to six Premier League clubs including Roy Hodgson and Crystal Palace interested in securing the services of the England under-21 international and if a deal is to be agreed on Liverpool’s part then it is likely that a permanent move will be sanctioned.

The Telegraph recently claimed that Liverpool could be forced to listen to offers if their £20 million valuation is met.

Sky Sports also report that Liverpool are still yet to decide whether Brewster will be allowed to leave Anfield this window with Klopp still evaluating whether or not the former Chelsea academy graduate will be part of his plans for the 2020/21 campaign.

Brewster featured for Liverpool as recently as Sunday during a behind-closed-doors friendly with Huddersfield B which saw a chunk of fringe players such as Adrian, James Milner, Joel Matip, Takumi Minamino, Divock Origi and Brewster all play a part during a 1-1 stalemate at Anfield.

If Liverpool were to choose to sell, then they will only do so in the knowledge that a buy-back clause will be inserted into Brewster’s contract which would imply the Reds will get first dibs if they ever were to return for the striker.

He scored 11 goals in 22 appearances during a successful spell with Swansea City last season and his time in south Wales has left Brewster keen on the prospect of moving away from Anfield to secure first-team football on a more sustainable basis.

Sheffield United have been touted as the favourites to land the England U17 World Cup-winning forward after manager Chris Wilder claimed the club were in the market for a striker before the October 5 deadline.

“We are definitely looking to improve and get one at the top of the pitch to give us that quality,” said Wilder ahead of United’s League Cup match with Burnley on Thursday.

“We are definitely looking to improve. If we can get one more at the top end of the pitch to really give us that quality then we will be in much better shape than when we first started in the Premier League against Bournemouth (last season).”
