Liverpool striker emerges as Newcastle United target following Callum Wilson breakthrough
Liverpool striker Rhian Brewster has emerged as a loan target for Newcastle United.
Steve Bruce hopes to clinch the signings of Callum Wilson, Ryan Fraser and Jamal Lewis in the coming days.
Striker Wilson is due Tyneside after Bournemouth accepted a £20million bid, while winger Fraser arrived on Friday for talks with Bruce. A deal for Norwich City left-back Lewis is also understood to be close.
Bruce – who has lost striker Dwight Gayle for up to four months – is also looking at the loan market, and Arsenal defender Rob Holding is a primary target.
United's head coach has also asked Liverpool about the availability of 20-year-old Brewster, according to the Daily Telegraph. Jurgen Klopp, however, could opt to keep Brewster – who spent the second half of last season on loan at Swansea City – at Anfield for now.
