Brew is Klopp's cup of tea now.

Byline: JOHN CROSS He's got his ear to the ground and his finger on the pulse

JURGEN KLOPP will put his faith in Liverpool prospect Rhian Brewster rather than spend big on a new striker.

Boss Klopp rates 19-year-old Brewster highly, regards him as a major emerging talent and plans to give him first-team opportunities.

Daniel Sturridge has left Anfield as a free agent, but the Reds are in talks with Divock Origi over a new deal and Brewster will also get chances.

Klopp's savvy management behind the scenes has already helped Brewster feel part of the set-up. The teenager, who was Golden Boot winner in England Under-17s' victorious World Cup campaign, travelled to Barcelona with Klopp in the Champions League and was on the bench for the return leg at Anfield.

His finishing has been an eye-catching feature of several training sessions.

Liverpool are also placing an emphasis on improving current contracts rather than another big-spending summer. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is being given a new 12-month deal, as reported here in Mirror Sport in April.
