Sheffield United are considered to be a better club for Rhian Brewster than both Newcastle United and Tottenham Hotspur – reports the Sheffield Star.
The Blades have been linked with a move for Brewster, either on loan or permanently. As things stand the former seems more likely, with the 20-year-old highly rated by Liverpool.
Reds manager, Jurgen Klopp, says they have not yet decided whether Brewster will be sent out again temporarily, or remain at Anfield. The striker greatly impressed on loan last season after scoring 10 goals in 20 games for Swansea City.
However, Klopp does reportedly view Bramall Lane as the “perfect place” for Brewster to continue his development. The German is a big admirer of Chris Wilder and the high pressing game his team have displayed in the Premier League.
Why Brewster is unlikely to join Tottenham and others
Clearly Klopp doesn’t have the same view about Newcastle and Spurs as he does about the Blades. Both sides are also said to be interested in signing Brewster this summer.
Yet Klopp would prefer to see the England Under-21 international move to South Yorkshire. This is despite Wilder’s team having only been promoted in 2019.
The 53-year-old also admires the way they have adapted to life in the top flight, finishing ninth last term. Klopp likes the strategy Wilder has built around attacking. Even though they were the fourth lowest scorers in the division in 2019/20.
That is a key reason why Wilder has made signing a new forward before the new campaign starts a priority. Time is running out, though, with the opener against Wolverhampton Wanderers on September 14 now less than two weeks’ away.
Wilder admits he has been “frustrated” with transfer dealings this summer, with only two new goalkeepers having arrived at the club thus far.
Therefore, beating the likes of Tottenham to Brewster would represent a massive win.
