Newcastle United interested in signing Liverpool’s Rhian Brewster
The youngster spent the second half of the last season on loan at Swansea City in the Championship, and impressed heavily. Having now returned to first-team training with Liverpool, it hasn’t come as too much of a surprise that the likes of Newcastle are keen on his services.
The story of what happened to Newcastle United over the last few months would bring tears to the heart of most passionate football fans. To get to the absolute verge of a multi-million dollar takeover, only for it to break down in the final knockings, would’ve hurt even the most optimistic of Magpies fans. (h/t Express)
There was talk of a massive overhaul until a couple of months ago, but things have seemingly settled down on that front. The Tyneside club have been forced to reconsider the profiles of the kind of players they want to target, with a deal for Bournemouth’s Callum Wilson expected to be completed in the coming days.

Despite this interesting signing, the report claims that another couple of acquisitions could still be on the radar at St. James’ Park this summer.
It has been claimed that the Magpies have asked to be kept updated regarding Brewster’s situation at Anfield. Although the Toon club’s interest has been confirmed, whether or not this deal happen could come down to Jurgen Klopp’s view on the matter. Steve Bruce was quick to point out the Tyneside outfit’s need to sign a striker as well. (h/t Express)
“Unfortunately, Dwight got injured against Crewe 10 days ago and had an operation today and will be without him for three or four months.”

Brewster, at this stage in his career, needs regular playing time in order to develop properly. That, however, is not guaranteed at Liverpool at the time being. Thus, a loan deal could work out well for all parties involved.
