It has been reported in The Telegraph that Liverpool’s young English attacker, Rhian Brewster, will be promoted to the first team when he returns from injury.
Brewster is now recovering from an ankle ligament injury, for which he needed two operations, and will return to action for Liverpool FC at the start of next season.
Jurgen Klopp is said to rate the 17-year-old so highly, that he wishes him to be part of the senior squad at Liverpool, competing against the attackers of Sadio Mané, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino for a place on the pitch.
Brewster was a crucial part of the England U17 squad who won the World Cup in the summer.
Klopp has shown that he sees Brewster as more of a senior player by making sure that his recovery from his ankle ligament injury is overseen at the First Team HQ at Melwood, rather than the Kirkby Academy for the young team players’ injuries.
He is set to be fully fit by July, by which time he will be training with the senior squad and most likely competing with fellow young English striker, Dominic Solanke for a spot in the squad.
Brewster will also be able to sign a long-term contract at Anfield soon as he turns 18 early in April, and so will be allowed to sign more than three year contracts.
So the future is looking very bright for Brewster, as he looks to be promoted to the senior squad as he advances even further through the Liverpool academy, and he looks to be rewarded for his performances heavily by Klopp.
