Why Rhian Brewster to Aston Villa would be a good move
According to the Daily Star, Jurgen Klopp is ready to sanction a loan move for youngster Rhian Brewster in January with a host of Premier League teams ready to sign him.
Aston Villa will compete with the likes of Leeds United, Crystal Palace and Swansea City to sign Brewster mid-season.
With players like Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino in Liverpool’s attacking ranks, Brewster has found his first-team chances hard to come by. He has featured 7 times in the Premier League 2 so far and has scored 4 times in the process.
The 19-year-old recently revealed that Klopp had blocked his loan move in the summer. Since then, Brewster was named as a substitute for both of Liverpool’s games against Chelsea in the Super Cup and the Premier League but he failed to make it to the matchday squad.
Aston Villa could do with a new striker, despite having bought Wesley in the summer from Club Brugge. The Villans have found it difficult to find the back of the net with just 19 goals in their 13 league games.
Currently, the Villans are just 4 points above the relegation zone. And Dean Smith has found it difficult to get the goals from Jonathan Kodija and Keinan Davis, both of whom have struggled to make an impact.
Brewster has a knack for scoring goals and it was evident in the U17 World Cup in India, where he emerged as the Golden Boot winner at the end of the tournament.
Since then, his opportunities have not arrived at Liverpool, who are doing an excellent job with their first-choice forwards.
At Aston Villa, Brewster would be capable of receiving more first-team chances.
The youngster is very promising and has all the tools to be lethal in front of the goal on his day. Moving to Aston Villa would help him gain play time and that would be a step further in his development.

Brewster’s goalscoring potential is undoubted and if given a chance, he could be a game-changer. Thus, to avoid relegation, Brewster should be brought in add fire to Aston Villa’s attack.
This decision would help both the club and the player, who needs to make a name for himself to break into Jurgen Klopp’s first-team in the future.
