Liverpool face the prospect of losing young star Rhian Brewster this Summer.
That’s because the teenager is open to the idea of heading to Germany in order to increase his chances of first-team football next season, with two Bundesliga clubs eager to sign him, according to a report by Neil Jones of Goal.
Both RB Leipzig and Borussia Monchengladbach are reported to have put contract offers on the table for the eighteen year old, who is yet to sign his first professional deal at Anfield.
That is despite Brewster becoming an adult last month when he celebrated his eighteenth birthday, but Liverpool have triggered the third year of his scholarship.
And in doing so, it means that Brewster is technically unable to speak to any other club about a move – which means that the Reds could report the two German clubs for making illegal approaches to the forward.
The club believe that they have evidence of meetings between Brewster and the two Bundesliga outfits and could lodge a complaint if he decides to leave Anfield to sign for either of them.
Manager Jurgen Klopp is eager to bring Brewster in to his first-team squad this Summer, once he regains full fitness, and will keep him around for next season.
But Brewster is said to have been advised by his representatives that a switch to Germany could see him given a fast track to regular senior games as he looks to make the next step in his career.
Klopp remains hopeful that he will see that his future is best served staying at Anfield.
