Sheffield United remain determined to land Liverpool forward Rhian Brewster on loan, according to a report in the Sheffield Star.
Linked with numerous Premier League clubs in recent weeks, it looks like it is Chris Wilder’s Untied side who remain at the forefront of the battle.
The Yorkshire club are now believed to have presented Liverpool with a ‘detailed development program’ in an attempt to convince them that The Blades are best suited to take the young striker.
Wilder is said to be an admirer of Brewster and wants the England U17 World Cup Golden Boot winner to be at the front of a high-intensity, pressing style of play, something which would be similar to Jurgen Klopp’s own methods.
The report claims that talks took place over the weekend, with the Blades outlining their plans for the striker as Liverpool weigh-up their options, with Wilder claiming Brewster would ‘complete the set’ for him this summer, and that he is ‘sure it will be worth the wait.’
The 20-year-old wasn’t part of Klopp’s squad during Saturday’s opening day 4-3 victory over Leeds United, leading to more speculation he would leave the club in some capacity in the coming weeks.
Despite Wilder and Sheffield United clearly being set on Brewster, it is questionable whether he would get as much match time as Liverpool would like if he did move to The Blades as Wilder’s squad already have a number of strikers.
However, it does now seem likely Brewster will leave on loan, although there have been some rumours of a permanent deal with the Reds implementing a buy-back clause.
