Rhian Brewster Needs to Leave Liverpool for the Good of His Career

In recent times, Rhian Brewster is one of the most talented youngsters to emerge for Liverpool. The young forward has started for England at junior level and impressed on loan for Swansea City in the Championship, scoring ten goals in 20 games.

But, he must leave Liverpool if he wants to capitalise on his immense potential. Quite simply, the youngster won’t have the opportunity to develop at Anfield.

Brewster is in a strange position – he’s too good for the reserves and not good enough for the first-team, but he may have enough quality for another Premier League team.

The recent reports linking Brewster away from Anfield make sense in this context.

Rhian Brewster Must Leave Liverpool

Brewster may Emulate Jadon Sancho or Romelu Lukaku

If Brewster leaves Liverpool, he may develop just like Jadon Sancho. The young winger left Manchester City for Borussia Dortmund and has stared in the Bundesliga. Last season, he scored a whopping 17 goals and assisted 16 more, but it’s unlikely he would have hit such heights if he had stayed at City.

Brewster, for his part, is not guaranteed to hit such heights, but he’ll never know if he stays at Liverpool. So far, he has seen limited opportunities under manager Jurgen Klopp and he is yet to make a Premier League appearance under the German.

Rhian Brewster’s career also seems to mirror Romelu Lukaku’s. The Belgian also impressed on loan and returned to his then parent club Chelsea.

Lukaku had the chance to impress at the beginning of the 2013 season, but then he missed a penalty in the UEFA Supercup. Similarly, Brewster missed a penalty in the FA Community Shield. Will this also spell the end of his Red’s career?

Next Destination for Brewster

Sheffield United is heavily interested in Brewster according to manager Chris Wilder. This would make sense as a career move for the forward. While a step down from Liverpool, the Blades enjoyed an impressive return to the top-flight last season. But one thing is for certain, they lacked a consistent forward.

Lys Mousset and Oli McBurnie finished as top goalscorers for the club, but they only scored six goals each.

If Brewster develops as predicted, he could be the missing piece for the Blades and even potentially fire them into Europe.
