Crystal Palace hold talks about Rhian Brewster move
Crystal Palace have been joined by Premier League rivals Sheffield United in holding talks over the availability of young Liverpool prodigy Rhian Brewster.
According to a report by Sky Sports, both clubs have made formal enquiries with the Premier League champions.
The Liverpool hierarchy has yet to come to a final decision as to whether they are willing to let the youngster leave, either on a loan or a permanent deal. Were Liverpool to sell, they would insist on inserting a buy-back clause into any permanent deal.
The England under-21 international mustered an impressive tally of 10 goals in 20 appearances for Swansea in a loan spell over the second half of the 2019/20 Championship season.
Having already secured the loan signing of Belgium international Michy Batshuayi from Chelsea on loan, Crystal Palace are said to be in the market for another new striker to provide competition for the likes of Jordan Ayew and Batshuayi.
Palace already have extra striking depth in the form of Connor Wickham and Christian Benteke, but the two forwards only managed three goals in the Premier League between them over the course of the 2019/20 season.
Meanwhile, Sheffield United manager Chris Wilder publicly announced his intentions to bolster his attacking options ahead of the 2020/21 season. Speaking to Sky, wilder proclaimed:
We are definitely looking to improve. If we can get one more at the top end of the pitch to really give us that quality then we will be in much better shape than when we first started in the Premier League against Bournemouth (last season).
