The Belgian is set for a scan but the Reds didn’t take any chances with Brewster. Liverpool took the striker off after 15 minutes of the game, according to the report.
The 19-year-old has had his injury problems over the past couple of years but is our third-choice striker this season.
Daniel Sturridge was allowed to leave for free in the summer window, and it is to be seen when the 19-year-old gets his chance in the first-team.
Brewster set to travel to Italy
The report adds that the English youngster is set to part of the squad for the Champions League opener against Napoli.
