New Rangers boss Gerrard eyes triple raid of Liverpool

Date published: Wednesday 6th June 2018 1:52 - Oli Fisher

Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard is reportedly looking to bring three players north of the border to Rangers from his former club.

According to Goal.com’s Neil Jones, Gerrard could make a triple swoop to bring Ovie Ejaria, Ryan Kent and Dominic Solanke from Anfield to Ibrox.

Central midfielder Ejaria, 20, is the most likely of the three to potentially link up with the former Liverpool U18s boss due to concerns over lack of playing time after the arrivals of Naby Keita and Fabinho.

He spent last season on loan at Sunderland, making 11 appearances in a disastrous campaign that saw the Black Cats drop into League One.

Kent had a loan spell at Bristol City last season but made just six appearances, which cost the Robins £500k due to an appearance-related clause in the deal, something which Liverpool are keen on inserting for young loanees.

Jones states: “Liverpool will continue to insist on a deal in which clubs are punished financially if a loan player does not start a certain amount of games.”

Tempting Liverpool to allow Solanke on loan seems unlikely, the report claims, though the prospect of regular playing time may convince Jurgen Klopp.
