Liverpool transfer news: Rhian Brewster move hits snag, Wilson and Karius latest

Liverpool appear to have done most of their transfer business already when it comes to new additions, but there is still work to do in the coming days.

Jurgen Klopp’s team have two more games to play before the transfer window shuts on October 5, with Thursday's Carabao Cup clash at home to Arsenal followed by a trip to Aston Villa on Sunday.

But work is sure to continue behind the scenes, and a number of players could end up moving on in the next week.

Diogo Jota, Kostas Tsimikas and Thiago Alcantara have all joined this summer, with Dejan Lovren and Ki-Jana Hoever among the players to have left Anfield.

We have the latest on some more potential exits as the Reds continue their title defence and prepare to fight on several fronts.

Karius seals Liverpool loan exit

Liverpool goalkeeper Loris Karius has completed a loan move to Union Berlin.

The German, who has spent the last two seasons on loan at Besiktas, will represent the Bundesliga club for a single campaign and wear the number 20 shirt.

Upon signing, he said: “I’m looking forward to my new opportunity in Berlin and I’m happy to be playing in the Bundesliga again.

“Union is a special club, one that has earned a great deal of respect, not just by promotion to the Bundesliga. I would like to play my part in this positive development and help to achieve the great goal of staying in the Bundesliga.”

Union finished 11th in last season’s Bundesliga, but lost goalkeeper Rafal Gikiewicz to Augsburg over the summer.

The German side have already done business with Liverpool this year, signing Nigerian striker Taiwo Awoniyi on loan for the season.

Sheffield United’s Brewster swoop up in the air

Sheffield United’s need for goals had seemingly made Liverpool striker Rhian Brewster a perfect fit, but doubt has been cast on the Blades’ move for the youngster.

The Blades drew another blank at the weekend, losing 1-0 to Leeds United, leaving them bottom of the Premier League table as one of just three teams without a point to their name.

Brewster had been linked with a move to Bramall Lane, with YorkshireLive describing the 20-year-old as manager Chris Wilder’s ‘top target', but the publication suggests the move is now up in the air as Liverpool hold out for a significant fee.

Brewster is yet to make his Premier League debut, having only featured in cup matches and the Community Shield for Liverpool.

However, he scored 11 goals in 22 games on loan at Championship side Swansea City last season, sparking interest from across the English top flight, with the Reds valuing their player at somewhere between £20-25m.

Harry Wilson’s future remains the subject of speculation, with the Wales international among the Liverpool players who could yet leave Anfield during the current window.

The 23-year-old has not played a competitive minute since returning from a loan spell at Bournemouth, and was an unused substitute as Liverpool beat Lincoln City in the Carabao Cup last week.

There has been interest in the wide man, not least from Burnley, who are looking to add to a relatively thin squad in the next seven days.

While there has been contact between Liverpool and Burnley, The Athletic reports that there has been ‘no progress’ on a move to take Wilson to Turf Moor.

Wilson has played just once for Liverpool’s first team, back in the 2016/17 season, but impressed in loan spells in the top two divisions.

After scoring freely for Hull City and Derby County, he found the net seven times for Bournemouth last season as they suffered relegation from the Premier League.
