Exclusive: Palace make contact over signing Liverpool player Klopp ready to let go
Crystal Palace have contacted Liverpool about signing Rhian Brewster in January, Football Insider can reveal.
The Londoners are keen to strengthen their forward line in the upcoming transfer window and are already working on multiple targets across various clubs.
A Liverpool source has told Football Insider that the visitors to Anfield for this afternoon’s Premier League clash have made an enquiry about the availability of Brewster on loan.
This comes after Football Insider revealed this week that Jurgen Klopp is open to loan offers for Brewster in the winter window.
The manager believes the teenage striker, 19, needs more match experience after making just two appearances for the first team in his fledgling career.
Klopp is not expected to make a decision on where Brewster will play for the second half of the season until after Liverpool’s League Cup quarter-final clash against Aston Villa in mid-December.
