Report: Sheffield United 'frontrunners' to sign Liverpool striker Rhian Brewster

Sheffield United are in pole position to land Liverpool forward, Rhian Brewster, according to a fresh report from 90Min.

Brewster enjoyed a fine second half of the season with Swansea City last season, firing them to the playoffs only to see Brentford see them off before a trip to Wembley was on the cards.

The Liverpool starlet is once again set for a loan move this summer despite scoring twice for the Reds in a pre-season friendly yesterday, with a number of clubs like Leeds and Fulham said to be keen.

However, this latest report claims that the Blades are ‘frontrunners’ to land Brewster, with Chris Wilder believing the forward can add something different this front-line.

Brewster is highly-thought of at Anfield. But it is believed his game-time will be limited this term, meaning another loan move will likely be on the cards for the 20-year-old.

United need a new striker, so adding someone who knows where the net is like Brewster does seems ideal.

He seemed to grow in stature as his time with Swansea went on and he finished the season with quite the flourish, and it is form he has obviously carried into pre-season with Liverpool.

With so many clubs in for the same players, it seems this might be United’s best bet at beating their rivals to a target. The only sticking point could be Wilder convincing Jurgen Klopp he will get games at Bramall Lane.

Ben Woodburn was the last to arrive from Liverpool and we all know how that went. Hopefully, this will turn out to be a different story.
