Rhian Brewster is one of England and Liverpool’s brightest hopes for the future, and Jurgen Klopp has informed the 17-year-old that he is set to be given a chance at senior level next season.
Brewster is currently recovering from an ankle injury which ruled him out for the rest of the season, an injury which he suffered after winning the U-17 World Cup with England as the tournament’s top scorer last summer.
But whilst he’d normally be undergoing his recovery at Liverpool’s Academy in Kirkby, Brewster is being treated at the first team HQ at Melwood, signs that the club are already recognizing his more senior status.
It’s a ploy by Klopp and the club to keep his motivation levels high during a difficult period for one of the most highly rated youngsters in the country. Klopp has personally told Brewster his intentions to integrate him into the first team squad next year.
Brewster will definitely be one to watch next season, with Klopp recently insisting that he’s happy with his striking options at the club amid rumours of signing Timo Werner.
