Liverpool are looking to loan out Rhian Brewster in January, with Swansea City making an official approach to the Reds over the forward's availability.
The 19-year-old has been restricted to just two first-team appearances during the 2019/20 campaign, both of which came in the Carabao Cup. He is one of the most highly-rated young talents at the club though, with the Reds looking to get him game time elsewhere to further his development.
According to Wales Online, Brewster could be on his way to Swansea after representatives from the Liberty Stadium outfit made contact with Reds officials about a proposed switch to Steve Cooper's side.
In autumn of 2017, the pair were both involved in the England Under-17s' World Cup triumph, with the striker collecting the tournament's Golden Boot. Their familiarity could prove decisive in where the teenager ends up.
Leeds' attempts to bring Brewster to Elland Road may be hindered by coach Marcelo Bielsa's treatment of on-loan Arsenal frontman Eddie Nketiah, who is still waiting on his first league start for the Whites, despite having joined in August.
Liverpool will want Brewster to benefit from his time away from Merseyside, and should therefore look elsewhere to avoid a similar scenario as that of Nketiah.
Villa and Palace, on the other hand, will need a more experienced player to lead their frontline in the top flight, with the Midlands side currently fighting a relegation battle.
