There have already been murmurs of a January loan move for Rhian Brewster. Liverpool’s young striker has the confidence of Jürgen Klopp and could be sent out for more regular playing time if the right club and situation is found.

Brewster moving on for the season would leave a vacant space in Klopp’s squad. And the manager allowed for the possibility that that space could be filled by a new signing.

“Yes, we have to see. We can’t just give the boys [away] on loan because we have built this squad.

”We have three long-term injuries and four with Paul Glatzel, two of them were pre-season. Two came later with Joel (Matip) and Fabinho.

”That gives us a 16-player squad and I count the kids, but we cannot only give players on loan and think it is good for him, we always have to consider both situations.

”The boys and ours, and in the end, we try to make the perfect solution. Sometimes it works out, others it does not.”

So, it remains to be seen if a move will even happen for Brewster. The situation with Harry Wilson and AFC Bournemouth has clearly worked well and that will be inspiring for Brewster.

I would not expect any replacement for the young 19-year-old to be of an eye-watering calibre. But still, new faces are fun.
