      From what I have seen of him in the U19's and U23's, he is more of an out and out striker, isn't he?

      Good that he has signed up, but is it worth keeping him at the club where his appearances will be very limited? I'd still have Solanke ahead of him and Ings tbh. Maybe we can find a German team willing to take him up on a 1-2 year loan?

      I have a feeling we are going to be seeing him on the bench and on the pitch much sooner than later. My bold prediction.....Solanke goes on loan and Brewster makes the subs bench.

      What have either of them done though in the last 12 months? Just a couple of league goals between them and whilst Brewster will obviously be a raw talent, I don't see how he could do much worse than either of them.

      I remember reading an article saying he'd be moved into the first team squad as soon as he's fit and that Klopp rates him as one of, if not the best young talents he's seen so I'd expect him to get some game time next season.

      You must be joking mate. Brewster is the next young star of the PL. He is a far better natural finslisher than Ings and Solanke. I think we'll see Brewster starting games for us sooner than you think.

      Ings will be sold and Solanke will be a reserve striker next season.

      Delighted we have held on to Rhian for the long term.

      Watched him on LFC TV recently and all I can say is he is far stronger than he looks he is quicker than quick itself he has a nasty streak in him so he is going to be a huge player for us. He reminds me of a young Owen on steroids though.

      Brewster is today's type of player isn't he Dom is a bit of a throw back but we need all options and unless these lads get game time whats the point of having them.

      Solanke has shown enough potential for me to think he has a higher ceiling than Brewster currently (mainly because Solanke has played first team football), and is closer to Firmino in terms of play style than any of our forwards. Look at his crazy work rate vs Burnley away (8miles and 100 sprints), and then you look at the home match vs Brighton (wasn't surprised at all because of the potential he has), just the tip of the iceberg imo.

      I don't think Klopp will loan him out, and I believe we will see more than 619 mins from him next season. And if Ings leave, I think Brewster will take his role. Whether he will play more mins than Solanke remains to be seen, but I think Solanke is higher up the ladder currently.

      Is Brewster really a more natural finisher than Solanke? At the same level and age, wasn't Solanke scoring more goals at U23 level?

      I personally think Solanke could also be the next PL "star" just as much as Brewster, but we won't really know until they play regularly at senior level.

      lets hope we can have a massive argument at the end of next season about whether Solankes 10 goals were better than Brewsters 10.

      Brewster is only 18 mate he hasn't player u23 yet. But he has scored 20 goals in 22 games for the u17's which is phenomenal.

      Don't get me wrong Solanke will be a fine player but Brewster is potentially world class material.

      I’ll be at the Charlotte NC game against Dortmund so I hope you’re right. I’m very happy with this news.

      Why would you rather play Solanke than anyone??? Give some other players a chance to impress, Solanke so far has not done enough.

      I think 35k pw on 4 year deal would be a fair amount. Not too much to go crazy like some players do, but enough to let him know we're serious about him. If does well for us that could double in a couple of years. Maybe even put a pay rise clause in the contract, that states something like double wages with contract extension if scores in 30% of his games and makes more than 25 appearances or something.

      Read an interesting interview with academy boss alex inglethorpe the other day and the most they will play is about 40k a year to kids , with a lot of incentives thrown in.

      Great news. There is something about this kid. Keeps it simple and a natural goalscorer.
