Liverpool have snubbed approaches from Premier League and overseas clubs for wonderkid Rhian Brewster ahead of the summer, Football Insider understands.

The Merseyside giants have fielded interest from clubs eager to assess the chances of the striker being available for a permanent or loan deal in the forthcoming window.

An Anfield source has told Football Insider that Liverpool have rejected all the enquiries and will continue to do for a player they have high hopes for.

Manager Jurgen Klopp is convinced the forward, who turned 19 earlier this month, is destined for huge things and plans to promote him to the first-team squad next season.

Klopp believes Brewster can be the breakthrough star to emerge from the Liverpool academy next season, capable of being a primary backup to first-choice forward trio Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino.

The England youth international won the Golden Boot as England won the World Cup at Under-17s level in 2017 but his development has been stunted as he has only just returned after more than a year out with serious ankle and knee injuries.

The striker led the line for a strong Under-23s side that thrashed Leicester City 6-0 last weekend, scoring once in a match in which Rafael Camacho netted a hat-trick.
