Liverpool forward Rhian Brewster is open to a move to Sheffield United, according to reports.

There has been a lot of interest in Brewster in recent months. The England youngster has always been highly rated by the Premier League Champions.

The forward spent the end of last season on loan with Swansea City. From his 22 appearances, he scored 11 goals as they finished in the Championship play-off places.

But with first-team chances for Liverpool being hard to come by, they are now willing to let Brewster leave. According to the Sheffield Star, he would prefer a move to Sheffield United.

Speaking ahead of their Yorkshire derby against Leeds, Blades boss Chris Wilder reiterated the importance of them improving their squad this window:

“We need to add to the group and the owners know that. Everyone is investing, everybody is improving and it’s important Sheffield United add to the group the same as everyone else has done, relative to what we’ve got to spend.”

“But also I’m not comfortable talking about players at other clubs. We’ve enquired about a number of players and hopefully, we’ll get one over the line.”

Sheff Utd have already had a busy window, signing seven new players. Aaron Ramsdale rejoined the club for around £18m from relegated Bournemouth.

Derby duo Max Lowe and Jayden Bogle have also joined along with Ethan Ampadu, Oliver Burke, Wes Foderingham and Ismaila Coulibaly.

Wilder also spoke on United’s transfer policy and he suggested his club is different to their rivals in how they recruit players.

Wilder added: “We are not like the majority of clubs in the division, where we pick the phone up, make a call and sign it off. It’s not the same. I understand that.”

“We have a decision as a football club, above me. There are three main players in signing a player – the player, does he want to come to us? Then there is the selling club and what price are we prepared to come up to. All three things need to come in to make it happen. There are things that have to happen now, from a negotiation point of view, to get the player.”
