According to The Independent, Jurgen Klopp and Chris Wilder discussed the availability of Rhian Brewster on Wednesday.
The report states that Sheffield United are leading the race for the prodigious forward, who is also attracting Crystal Palace, Aston Villa, Brighton and Swansea’s interest.
However, The Independent says that potential suitors are hesitant because Liverpool insist on a buyback option for their academy graduate.
Brewster wasn’t named in the Reds’ squad for their 7-2 Carabao Cup win over Lincoln City on Thursday evening.
The report adds that the Premier League champions value the 20-year-old at £25 million.
It also mentions that the Blades have received glowing reports on Brewster, who Liverpool believe will be a guaranteed goal-scorer with regular game-time.
He would be a fantastic signing for any of the aforementioned clubs who are interested in him.
However, they are right to be hesitant about a buyback option.
Should he do well, then there’s nothing stopping Liverpool from bringing him straight back to Anfield – it could effectively be a glorified loan move for the teenager.
Nevertheless, there is a reason why so many top-flight clubs are interested in the highly-rated prospect.
