Brewster set for loan spell?
Rhian Brewster is a product of Liverpool’s youth system.
The now 19-year-old has been a standout star for Liverpool’s under-23 side, scoring 13 and assisting 10 in 28 games.
Brewster is also a regular feature for England’s youth sides, racking up 23 appearances for the Three Lions’ under-17 team.
However, Brewster has struggled to cement a place in Liverpool’s senior side, making just two appearances for them.
Both of those appearances came this season in the League Cup.
Now, with Jurgen Klopp seemingly not needing Brewster’s services too much, could we see the young attacker loaned out?
According to the Mirror, Klopp revealed on Friday that he was willing to let Brewster go out on loan for the second-half of the season.
The same report from the Mirror goes on to claim that Premier League new boys Aston Villa are leading the race to sign Brewster on loan:
Liverpool starlet Rhian Brewster is a loan target for several clubs in January — with Aston Villa leading the race.

Villa still interested in Benrahma
As well as Brewster, Villa are being mentioned in the same breath as Brentford starlet Said Benrahma.
The winger has scored 13 and assisted 19 across all competitions in 58 outings for the Championship outfit.
And Sky Sports News have recently reported that Villa remain interested in Benrahma ahead of the January transfer window.
The report from Sky claims that Villa put in a number of bids for the Brentford man over the summer, but they couldn’t agree a deal for Benrahma.
