Rhian Brewster looks to have earned LFC chance with Swansea form

Like many young LFC forwards of years gone by, talk of Rhian Brewster's potential has been ongoing for many years at Anfield.

Since his breakout performances for England at youth level, Brewster was always seen as the next big thing. But a number of other young players, including Trent, Curtis Jones, Neco Williams and Harvey Elliott have all seemingly jumped way ahead of him.

Brewster's loan at Swansea this season though appears to have 're-ignited' the 20 year old forward's career. And, in at the same time, boosted his chances of a breakthrough at LFC.

Speaking today on the forward's time on loan, Jurgen Klopp said: "The plan with Rhian we will talk to Rhian and not here. But it (the loan) was unbelievably important and I'm really happy we had the opportunity to do so.

"In his first proper senior year he had an awful injury. He needed a long time and that's why we said immediately when he came back it made no sense to be here as third striker. It was a lot different to other situations.

"He was really happy that he could go to his former coach who knew him from the youth national team.

"They really wanted him and it's really important for a young striker, because they cannot score every week but they still should stay on the pitch.

"He played a good season and Rhian showed his talent. For the moment it's nearly perfect but how it will be next year we will talk with him and his representatives."
