Liverpool are reportedly prepared to sell striker Rhian Brewster in the coming weeks, but only if a buy-back clause is placed in the deal.

Brewster, 20, spent the duration of the 2019-20 season on loan with Championship outfit Swansea City.

The forward enjoyed a stellar campaign at the Liberty Stadium scoring 11 goals in 22 appearances.

Brewster's impressive stint with the Swans is understood to have earned him a slew of admirers.

Premier League duo Crystal Palace and Sheffield United are said to be keen on acquiring his services, with reports suggesting the pair have already entered talks with the Merseysiders.

The Reds, according to Sky Sports, are willing to entrain permanent bids for Brewster, though they'll insist a buy-back clause is inserted into any deal that is reached.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is an admirer of Brewster but is keen for him to receive regular first-team football in order to further his development.

Klopp lauded the England Under-21 international following his pre-season brace against Red Bull Salzburg in August, labelling him a "natural goalscorer".

"Rhian is a young boy and he knows he can learn a lot of things but he is a natural goalscorer," Klopp told Liverpool's official website.

"That is what he is. Yes, he was involved a bit but in the decisive moments, he is 100 per cent there.

"I like the kid and it is all good. He scored three in two games, that is not bad."

Since being promoted to the first team in the 2018-19 season, Brewster has only made a paltry four appearances for the defending Premier League champions.

Liverpool will be back in action on Sunday afternoon, travelling to Stamford Bridge to take on title hopefuls Chelsea.

Klopp's troops will enter the match on the back of an opening day thriller with Leeds United, which they won 4-3.
