Wonderkid striker

Rhian Brewster has long been tipped for greatness at Anfield.

The 20-year-old forward has been on the verge of breaking into the first team for some years now with injuries curtailing his progress.

In January this year the striker was loaned out to Swansea City, he scored 11 goals for the Swans, firing them into the playoff places.

Chris Wilder’s side are said to be desperate for a clinical striker up top and negotiations are on-going with the Reds.

The need for a lethal finisher in the Sheffield side was evident when Wilder’s team created plenty of chances but still fell to a 2-0 defeat against Wolves this week.

The theory is that should Sheffield United bring in Rhian Brewster, the youngster’s instinctive positioning should see him convert these numerous chances they are creating.

What RTK has to say

A loan move to Sheffield United would be a fantastic opportunity for all involved.

Brewster is a poacher at heart, we saw this over pre-season when he scored three in two games, perfectly positioned for each strike.

Should the Blades bag the young forward for the season he should be netting plenty for Chris Wilder, getting vital first team experience ahead of his return to Anfield where, fingers crossed, he should be given a shot next season.

We’re looking forward to seeing how this one plays out.
