Rhian Brewster is not far from being mentioned in the same breath as Ben Woodburn…
The striker is only 16-years-old but has already established himself as a starter for the Under-23s – and bagged a brace last night in the 5-1 pummelling of Reading.
Naturally fans took to Twitter to air their excitement, with one suggesting we no longer need summer target Alexandre Lacazette!
We can see Brewster continuing in the Under-23s until the summer, where he could then be given a chance on the first-team tours, as Woodburn, Ovie Ejaria and Trent Alexander-Arnold were in 2016.
16 year old Rhian Brewster with 2 goals so far for Liverpool u23s ? #LFC

I think we might be seeing some of Rhian Brewster around the first team towards the end of the season. #LFC

This Brewster lad can’t stop scoring at the moment. He’s got all the academy staff excited, one to look out for next season? #LFC

Rhian Brewster will be the first person born this century to score for Liverpool. No doubt in my mind #LFC
