Liverpool Consider Reporting German Club For 'Illegal' Pursuit Of Rhian Brewster

Liverpool Consider Reporting German Club For 'Illegal' Pursuit Of Rhian Brewster
By Arthur James O'Dea

One of England's stars during their recent success at the U-17 World Cup, Liverpool's Rhian Brewster looks set to be joining German club, Borussia Monchengladbach.

Like a number of other young English players plying their trade in the Bundesliga, should the 18-year-old follow through with the move, Jadon Sancho of Borussia Dortmund and Kaylen Hinds of Wolfsburg are just a sampling of some familiar faces he will come across.

Unhappy at the prospect of losing one of their most promising stars, The Telegraph have reported however that Liverpool are considering reporting the German club for contacting Brewster illegally.

A tactic that Liverpool themselves were found guilty of committing in their initial pursuit of Virgil van Dijk, the club have tried desperately to sign Brewster to a professional contract in order to avoid such a scenario.

However, they still retained some say over's Brewster's availability:

Brewster, an England Under-17 World Cup winner, has never signed a professional deal at Liverpool but the club have triggered the third year of his scholarship deal which means that he is not currently allowed to speak to other clubs even outside the Premier League.

Having elected to leave Chelsea's academy system in 2014 to join Liverpool, Brewster has been widely lauded for his ability to do what is best for his career.

As such, with the success that many young English players have enjoyed in Germany (including Everton loanee Ademola Lookman and West Ham's Reece Oxford), Brewster is of the impression that the move to Monchengladbach will offer him more playing-time.

Similarly praised for outspokenness on the issue of racial abuse, the 18-year-old spoke openly to The Guardian of the abuse he had faced despite not yet having played a senior game of professional football.

With the move to Monchengladbach looking all but confirmed, "a major change of heart" is reported to be Liverpool's only hope of retaining the promising youngster.
