Crystal Palace fans have taken to Twitter to react after it was reported that Liverpool striker Rhian Brewster is in the Eagles’ sights ahead of a January loan swoop for the teenager.
Brewster, 19, is highly-rated by Jurgen Klopp at Anfield, with the former Borussia Dortmund boss stating back in the summer that the academy graduate has a big role to play for the Merseysiders.
“Rhian is a really big talent. We’re really looking forward to seeing him in training. It will be an important role for us, we’ve planned an important role for him.”
However, the aforementioned report states that the England U17 World Cup and Golden Boot winner is a loan target for the south Londoners this winter, and Palace believe Brewster can provide competition for Christian Benteke, Jordan Ayew and Connor Wickham.
The Liverpool teen has started both of the Reds’ Carabao Cup games this season against MK Dons and Arsenal, but is yet to make an appearance in the Premier League this term – he has, however, netted 20 goals in 44 appearances throughout the Liverpool youth ranks.
Let’s take a look at how the Palace fans on Twitter reacted to the news…
Bit of a fall from michy to rhian

We shouldn’t be signing an academy player from another team when we have options right in our backyard at Palace. I know that we’re looking at other options at striker and those options are better and maybe more reliable than Rhian at the moment
