Newcastle United have reportedly joined a growing list of clubs interested in signing Rhian Brewster from Liverpool this summer.
The 20-year-old impressed during a loan spell with Championship side Swansea City last season, scoring 11 goals in 22 appearances for Steve Cooper‘s men.
Brewster has maintained that form in pre-season with three goals in Liverpool’s two friendlies so far, although he remains firmly behind the likes of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino in the pecking order at Anfield.
Divock Origi and Takumi Minamino provide further competition for places up front in Jurgen Klopp‘s side, and Brewster’s desire to be playing first-team football could result in him looking to leave the club either on loan or permanently.
A host of Premier League clubs have been credited with an interest in the Under-17 World Cup winner, and The Chronicle reports that Newcastle have now added their names to the list.
The Magpies struggled with goals last season but are likely to face stiff competition for Brewster’s signature, with the likes of Aston Villa, Brighton & Hove Albion, Burnley, Crystal Palace, Sheffield United and Fulham among the other clubs thought to be monitoring his situation.
