Crystal Palace are prepared to offer as much as £25million for Liverpool striker Rhian Brewster.

Brewster spent the second half of last season on loan at Swansea, scoring 11 goals in 22 appearances for the Swans as they were beaten in the semi-final of the Championship play-offs.

After returning to his parent club last month, the Reds were inundated with checks on Brewster's availability with as many as 10 clubs across the Championship and the Premier League opening the lines of communication.

Aston Villa, Newcastle, Burnley, Brighton and newly-promoted Fulham all reached out to check on the possibility of taking Brewster for the 2020/21 season.

Last season's relegated teams of Norwich, Watford and Bournemouth were also in touch while Sheffield United made a firm push last month.

The Blades spoke to Liverpool before last month's Community Shield and make clear their determination to secure a deal for the England Under-21 international.

And while the Reds' preference was initially to loan Brewster to either a Premier League club or a European equivalent, Jurgen Klopp refused to rule out a permanent sale for the 20-year-old.

Palace's offer is believed to be £19m with £6m included in add-ons and a buyback clause of £37m as part of the proposal.

Such terms could be agreeable to Liverpool given how highly they rate Brewster.

The bid would allow them to recoup some of the funds for summer incomings Thiago Alcantara and Diogo Jota, while also giving them the chance to bring the attacker back to Anfield if his rise continues to be sharp.

The ECHO understands the club will think carefully over what represents the best step for both them and a player they have nurtured since being a 15-year-old before a decision is taken.
