Rhian Brewster had a spectacular half-season at Swansea on loan, scoring 11 goals for the Championship side after joining up in January and helping to lift them into a playoff place that gave them a chance at promotion.

Now, not at all surprisingly, they want him back for another go, believing that Brewster’s presence for an entire campaign would give them a realistic shot at finishing in the automatic qualifying places next season. 

“It goes without saying we’d really like to keep Rhian,” said manager Steve Cooper. “He definitely thrives off the belief we give him. If Liverpool decide to put him out on loan again, we would like to think we will be in the mix to get him.”

Realistically, it’s probably a long shot for Swansea, as with the 20-year-old striker proving he’s more than good enough for the Championship it’s likely Liverpool will want to see him challenged by the Premier League.
