Crystal Palace closely monitoring 20-year-old Liverpool striker

The Merseyside club told Rhian Brewster’s suitors the striker is for sale but only if a buy-back clause is inserted into the deal, according to reports. U21 England international impressed on loan at Swansea City last campaign, scoring eleven times in only 22 matches for the Championship club.

Liverpool boss is a huge fan of Rhian but is keen for the striker to benefit more from regular football. Clubs appear to be lining up to take Brewster on loan and the Merseyside giants have opened negotiations with PL teams Crystal Palace and Sheffield United over a move.

The Merseyside giants are prepared to sell the 20-year-old centre-forward considering the interest in him but will insist on a buy-back clause for the goalscorer. The English centre-forward himself is open to a move away from the Merseyside club as he doesn’t want to spend a campaign being used sporadically by the German manager.

Reds are yet to make a final decision on the future of Rhian and the transfer window does not shut until 5 October. A domestic-only window for deals between the PL and EFL teams then runs from until 16 October. Jurgen Klopp is eager to add to his front-line but Liverpool have been hampered by a lack of funds and missed out on Timo Werner to Chelsea earlier in the summer.

However, the Merseyside giants are not expected to lose any of their big stars after Gini Wijnaldum decided against pushing for a move to Barcelona. The Netherlands international, who has less than a year left on his deal, has been swayed by talks he held with the German manager and is now waiting for the club to offer him a deal extension.
