MOT Super Fans: Would Brewster be a good replacement if Nketiah is recalled?

This is part of a regular series from our panel of Leeds United Super Fans. Each week, our Super Fans will deliver their verdicts on the biggest talking points and news stories around Elland Road and Thorp Arch.


Marcelo Bielsa has said that Eddie Nketiah will be back in full training on Thursday and, while Patrick Bamford has re-discovered his scoring touch (he’s going for goals in three consecutive games on Tuesday night for the first time since signing), that’s great news for Leeds. 

Nketiah hinted at his return on Twitter, teasing fans with a message that said, ‘Almost time #MOT’.

However, there have been rumblings that Arsenal are looking to recall their young striker over a lack of game-time, with Football Insider reporting that Leeds are now actively looking for a replacement should the worst happen.

Phil Hay said the same thing on The Athletic on Tuesday.

There’s still time for Arsenal to change their stance but it makes sense to be prepared. One name that’s been circulating is Rhian Brewster, with Jurgen Klopp prepared to loan him out for the second half of the season.

If Nketiah goes (and let’s be clear, we don’t want that to happen) would Brewster be a good replacement? Or should Leeds be looking elsewhere?

They’re the questions we put to our Super Fans ahead of the game against Reading tonight. This is what they said…

The consensus? While no one’s got a bad word to say about Brewster, some of our Super Fans think someone more experienced could be needed if Nketiah goes.

However, the overwhelming opinion is that fans don’t want that to happen. Unai Emery, can you hear us?
