Newcastle United are one of a host of Premier League sides interested in a move for Liverpool's talented striker Rhian Brewster.

The Magpies reportedly face stiff competition for the England under-21 international from the likes of Aston Villa, Brighton, Burnley, Crystal Palace and Fulham all credited with an interest.

Brewster netted 11 times on loan in the Championship with Swansea City last season, and the 20-year-old has expressed his desire to fight for his place at Anfield this season.

The promising forward has already made an impression in pre-season, scoring three times in two matches so far including a double in the Reds' recent draw with Red Bull Salzburg.

Former Newcastle midfielder and Brewster's team-mate Gini Wijnaldum told Liverpool's club website that the striker's electric form had come as no surprise to anyone at the club.

Wijnaldum said: “I’m not ‘impressed’, because I know already which kind of quality he has.

“We trained together for a few years and he showed also in training that his finishing is unbelievable, so I’m not really impressed!”

Sean Bradbury - sport audience editor at the Liverpool Echo - believes the "million dollar question" facing the United target is whether he is ready to make the step up to the Premier League.

To find out more about Brewster, we decided to get the Liverpool view on the burning questions Magpies will want to know about the striker that is currently on the club's shortlist.

What sort of player is Brewster, and what should NUFC fans expect if he were to sign for the club?

Jurgen Klopp summed it up quite simply this week: "He is a natural goalscorer".

Three goals in two pre-season cameos so far for Liverpool has clearly demonstrated that.

Brewster is a speedy striker who comes alive in the box.

He is an excellent finisher with the skill and composure to ensure he usually makes the right decision in front of goal.

He turned 20 in April, so there is plenty of development still to come in his career.

But the early signs suggest he has all the raw materials to cut it at the highest level.
