The Scottish Herald reckons that Rhian Brewster could be on the way to Paradise for a loan deal for the whole of the 2018/19 season.
I must say that this is a deal that, initially, I really like the look of.
Okay, so he’s perhaps not the most important player we need thanks to our attacking options but he looks a real talent.
And, if Brendan can get the best out of him, I think we’ll be on to a real winner with him improving in the famous green and white.
Let’s see what our fans have said on Twitter:
Rhian Brewster is out of contract in the summer so a loan deal would seem unlikely unless he signs a new deal at a Liverpool.
A permanent deal could be a possibility where Celtic would only have to pay a compensation fee, similar to the Moussa Dembele deal.

If we do get him in on loan then it must mean moussa will be off and brewster will play the role that edouard has played this season, hopefully will pay the money for eddie though and make him first choice

We don't need a ST. A RB and CB is badly needed.

I suspect this might be a PR setup. Press announce Celtic are getting Rhian Brewster, Murty sacked, Gerrard becomes Rangers manager, SG signs Brewster on loan. Press claim Rangers won a major battle over Celtic because of SG's influence.

My thoughts right away could be a set up

Lets not start getting silly.

Apparently Liverpool are confident on him signing a new deal

Why are we not signing players to improve the squad for Europe.

There might be a few that think we don’t need him and that might be true but I’d still be excited to see him come in.
I can’t see Liverpool letting him go permanently without a fight but even a loan deal would likely benefit us and them, so why not go ahead with it?
