Sheffield United are plotting a sensational £15m move for Liverpool striker, Rhian Brewster, with reports claiming Jurgen Klopp has put the brakes on a potential loan move.
That is, according to respected journalist Alan Nixon, who claims the Blades are now willing to make a permanent bid to land Brewster.

Nixon claims that Jurgen Klopp has so far put the blockers up on a potential loan move for the youngster. However, Chris Wilder could be willing to spend a big chunk of change to land Brewster full-time.
It remains to be seen whether that is something Liverpool will entertain. Brewster scored twice last week in a 2-2 pre-season friendly for the Reds, adding further goals to the ten Championship goals he scored in a loan spell with Swansea City last season.
Brewster is thought to be of interest to a number of clubs, with Leeds, Fulham, and Aston Villa all said to be keen on bringing him in over the summer.
But it appears Chris Wilder might have the edge, as the rumour mill continues to swell and talk of Brewster arriving at Bramall Lane seems to gather pace.

Chris Wilder loves to pull a rabbit out of the hat and while talk of a loan deal has been in the offing for a few weeks, this permanent news could be massive.
Spending £15m on a young, talented striker is exactly the sort of move which will excite United fans.
It also proves, once again, that for the right player, Prince Abdullah will indeed back Wilder. The question now is whether Liverpool will choose to cash-in or simply turn down the offer.
Regardless, it’s nice to see the club looking to add quality in the right areas ahead of the new season.
