Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is reportedly ready to replace Daniel Sturridge with young striker Rhian Brewster.
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has reportedly decided to promote Rhian Brewster to his first-team squad.
Brewster has been sidelined for much of this season through injury, but the 19-year-old remains highly-regarded at Anfield.
Daniel Sturridge is expected to leave Liverpool on a free transfer in the summer and according to The Times, Brewster will take the England international’s place in the squad.
The Merseyside giants have been linked with the likes of Timo Werner and Luka Jovic, but it appears that preference will be given to handing opportunities to the Under-17 World Cup winner.
Brewster is yet to make his first-team debut, but Klopp opted to include the player in his travelling party for the Champions League encounter with Barcelona earlier this week.
