Sources: Klopp stance explained after Liverpool field two new Rhian Brewster bids
Jurgen Klopp is undecided on letting Liverpool sensation Rhian Brewster go after bids from Sheffield United and Crystal Palace, Football Insider has learned.
Chris Wilder’s side have tabled a loan-to-buy offer for the striker, 20, that would see him join permanently next summer for over £20million.
A recruitment source has told Football Insider that Palace have also held talks with Liverpool over landing Brewster and have submitted a bid.
Liverpool are yet to respond to the offers as Klopp bides his time on making a final decision on the England Under-21 international.
The manager will have the final say on the future of Brewster, who has long been touted as a first-team star of the future at Anfield.
Liverpool have let it be known they are open to offers for the youngster despite an impressive spell on loan at Swansea City in the second half of last season.

Options for the Merseysiders include a straightforward loan, a loan-to-buy or a permanent sale including a buy-back option.
There is strong interest from Sheffield United and Palace, as well as Brighton and West Brom.
Wilder explained at his media conference last week he is keen to recruit a new striker before the 5 October transfer cut-off and has admitted his interest in Brewster.
Brewster has only played three senior Liverpool matches but won the Golden Boot at the Under-17 World Cup in 2017.
He had a successful loan stint away from Anfield last term, scoring 11 times in 22 appearances for Championship side Swansea City.
