Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has perhaps dropped the biggest hint yet that young striker, Rhian Brewster, will be sold this summer.

The Reds played Lincoln City last night in the Carabao Cup and romped to a 7-2 victory against the EFL outfit.

However, it was the squad selection from Klopp that will have caught the attention of Blades fans, with the German boss opting not to include Brewster in the entire squad, despite a number of young players being given their chance.

The Reds gave minutes to the likes of Harvey Elliott, Neco Williams, and Curtis Jones, but there was no place for Brewster, who is said to be a long-term target for Chris Wilder and United.

It could be, then, that Klopp has made his mind up on Brewster and is now ready to sanction a deal for the young forward. However, the likes of Crystal Palace and Aston Villa have also been credited with interest in the striker, so it remains to be seen whether the Blades will get their man.

This is the biggest sign yet that Liverpool are willing to let Brewster go. It’s just a case of where he goes and who can put together the deal to make it work for Liverpool.

Wilder has apparently spoken to Jurgen Klopp once again yesterday and that is a positive sign. However, the Reds are said to want around £20m for their man, a fee which could prove problematic for the Blades.

Talks are also continuing with Folarin Balogun, while Ante Budimir is another name who has been touted as a potential buy.

One way or another, it looks like we might be ebbing closer to landing another forward.
