Liverpool have been splashing the cash in the past week. The Reds have brought in two top talents after a whirlwind few days. One of the signings has already made his debut. However, new arrivals must surely mean departures to balance the books. According to James Pearce, Rhian Brewster heading to Crystal Palace for £25m is now ‘gathering pace’.
Spending spree for Reds
This week we saw Liverpool stun us all by bringing in two new faces.
We were told all summer that there was no money to spend but then they caught us all off guard over the course of a couple of days.
Thiago Alcantara was brought in from Bayern Munich for £20m plus £5m in bonuses.
Whilst Diogo Jota followed a day later, arriving from Wolves in a £41m deal.
Rhian Brewster to Crystal Palace
James Pearce has claimed that Rhian Brewster moving to Crystal Palace is ‘gathering pace’.
The English striker will reportedly join the Eagles for £25m with a buyback clause inserted.
The 20-year-old had also been linked with a move to Sheffield United but Palace now appear to be the front runners and look as though they’ll get the deal over the line.
However, Palace chairman Steve Parish has denied reports of any bid being made.
What RTK has to say
Getting £25m for a player who is yet to make an impact in the first team is good business by our reckoning.
The youngster has been tipped to breakthrough for some time now but he hasn’t done so, although injuries have played a part in this regard.
Given that the club have spent big in the past week, it comes as no surprise that the Reds are looking to recoup some of this money.
There is also the consideration of the buyback clause, the Reds can get him back if he starts to realise his potential. Fingers crossed he will, ex-Liverpool boss Roy Hodgson should look after him.
