The Sun has recently claimed that Aston Villa are facing fierce competition in pursuit of Liverpool forward Rhian Brewster this summer. The Villans will have to battle it out with Burnley, Brighton, Crystal Palace, Newcastle United and Fulham in the race to acquire the services of the English youngster, who might be available for £20m, during this summer transfer window (via The Sun).
Brewster’s Rapid Emergence In English Football
Brewster recently had the misfortune of missing a decisive penalty in the FA Community Shield final loss to Arsenal last month which cost his team the trophy. However, Jurgen Klopp refused to put him under the microscope by accepting most of the blame for that loss to shield him from the media.
It seems like the Reds could rely on his services as a third-choice forward next season if they fail to find a suitable club for him this summer. Maybe sending him out on loan once again could work wonders following his incredible loan spell with Swansea City last season when he found the back of the net on 11 occasions in 22 appearances across all competitions.
The England U-21 international has matured as a striker over the past 12 months based on his average of 2.5 shots, 0.5 key passes and 0.7 dribbles per game in the 2019-20 EFL Championship campaign. However, he needs to take care of the ball better when interchanging possession with his teammates in the attacking third after completing only 64.2% of his attempted passes in the second tier of English football (stats via whoscored).
What Will The English Prospect Bring To Villa Park?
Brewster tends to operate just on the shoulders of the last centre-back in the opposition defence and can make some well-timed runs using his pace to cause all sorts of problems in the final third. The English whizkid has transformed himself into a lethal finisher up top but needs more game time at the highest level if he wants to become a household name in English football.
Brewster still has a lot to learn, so a switch to Villa Park on loan or permanently this summer could be an ideal next step in his development process as it will give him the platform to test himself against the best players on offer in the Premier League every week next season.
The Liverpool speedster has the potential to become an accomplished marksman if given a nurturing environment in the coming seasons. He will add a lot of pace and goals to Dean Smith’s frontline and is more than capable of competing with the likes of Keinan Davis, Mbwana Samatta and Wesley Moraes for a regular first-team place at the West Midlands club. With all things considered, the Villans would be wise to engineer a summer move to bring Brewster to Villa Park before the transfer window slams shut later this year.
