Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has spoken at length about the future of his young striker, Rhian Brewster, insisting nothing has been decided yet for the forward.
Sheffield United are said to be in advanced dialogue with the Reds over a deal to bring Brewster to Bramall Lane, with both a loan and a £15m permanent move both mentioned this week.
And while Chris Wilder has spoken of his confidence in getting a few deals done in the coming days and weeks, it appears that Klopp is in no mood to rush a decision over Brewster’s future. (Liverpoolfc.com)
“At the moment he is, and then we have to see what will happen in the next few weeks or so. We want to use Rhian but we want to help Rhian as well so that’s why we have to make decisions, but not now obviously.
“We have to see how we can give him the experience – is it here [or] is it somewhere else? I only mention it because it’s not decided yet, why should we? There’s absolutely no reason to rush anything in that thing.”
The comments from Klopp seem to give little away but do not completely close the door on a potential deal for Brewster.
The England youngster is likely to want to play this season. And with Roberto Firmino and Divock Origi ahead of him at Anfield, he may well push for the move himself.

Jurgen Klopp has an admiration for Chris Wilder, despite the failed loan spell of Ben Woodburn a couple of seasons back. It is hoped, then, that the Reds boss will be willing to sanction a move to Bramall Lane.
Indeed, reports earlier in the week suggested Klopp felt United were perfect for Brewster.
But, a number of other clubs are interested in the goalscorer. Leeds, Newcastle, and Aston Villa are all thought to be keen, so it remains to be seen if Wilder can work his magic with Klopp or not.
