Rangers are edging closer to securing an agreement to re-sign Liverpool Ryan Kent this summer, according to the Daily Mail.

The outlet report that Rangers are closing in on a deal to take Kent back to the club, following the 22-year-old’s impressive loan spell at Ibrox last term, where he registered six goals and registered a further four assists.

It is believed that Leeds United are also interested in arranging a deal to take the winger on loan for next season, but Rangers are confident that they will be able to secure a deal to re-sign the talented attacker.

OPINION

This report will be welcome news to Rangers supporters, with the club keen to secure another loan deal for Kent this summer, after the 22-year-old performed excellently in the SPFL last term, picking up the division’s Young Player of the Year award. Liverpool will be keen for the winger to go out on loan again next season and continue his development, and Rangers manager Steven Gerrard was able to get the best out of Kent last term so it should be a reasonably safe option for the Reds to send him back to Ibrox. Next season will be a crucial one for Kent, and the 22-year-old will need to ensure that wherever he is he manages to replicate his form from last season, if the winger is to have any chance of placing himself in Jurgen Klopp’s long-term thinking. A move back to Rangers might be the best option for Kent, with the attacker knowing that he will almost certainly be given the platform to play consistently once again at the Scottish club next term.
