Liverpool have been busy bees in the past week. The Reds have added a couple of new faces to the first team squad. Thiago Alcantara has arrived to pull the strings whilst Diogo Jota has come to backup the front three with some quality. These two buys will surely mean the club selling to cover the cost. Liverpool are reportedly close to selling Rhian Brewster to Crystal Palace, it is a move which could prove a masterstroke in the future.
Edwards splashes the cash
Liverpool fans have had a nervous summer to say the least.
Kopites had been worried during the transfer window, sweating over heading into the new season without any fresh faces, barring a backup left back brought in on the cheap.
The two signings were decisive statements of intent from the club. One world class midfielder and one forward with bags of potential.
Liverpool selling Brewster?
According to James Pearce, Liverpool selling Rhian Brewster to Crystal Palace for £25m is ‘gathering pace’.
Sky Sports also reported on the story, adding that there would be a £37m buyback clause.
However, Eagles chairman Steve Parish rubbished the claims, asking Sky Sports to retract the story.
As they say, there’s no smoke without fire and this is a lot of smoke.
Liverpool selling Brewster to Palace with a buyback clause inserted is a masterstroke of a move.
The striker is currently nowhere near being a regular starter at Anfield.
If he is to develop into the footballer he promises to be then he needs regular game time, he will get that at Selhurst Park.
These regular appearances could see him realise his potential and if he does then we can bring him back, essentially paying Crystal Palace £12m to develop him for us.
This would save the club time and money in the future. We may not need to hunt and shop around for a new forward if we already have a deal struck for one, one who knows the club inside out and who knows the Reds’ style of play.
Fingers crossed we manage to pull this one off and we see him back at Anfield in the future.
