Rangers remain hopeful on Kent as deal for Man City talent fails

Rangers remain hopeful they can seal a loan deal to bring Ryan Kent back to Ibrox from Liverpool.

Liverpool have made it clear that Kent can move on this summer – but the 22-year-old has price tag of close to £7million.

Leeds almost brokered a deal last month – but Liverpool refused to entertain a loan before a permanent move.

However, with no side able to meet Liverpool’s demands, Rangers are trying to cash in when Leeds failed and arrange a similar move.

However, Rangers will need Liverpool to later their stance on the player and allow him to move on an initial loan with a view to the deal becoming permanent next summer.

Discussing their prospects of signing Kent on Friday, Gers boss Steven Gerrard said: “Nothing has changed on the Ryan Kent situation.

“Again we’d love to have him here but Liverpool’s stance hasn’t changed. So we move on and move forward.

“Unless we were to get a phone call on that one it’s as it was.

“But everyone knows what we think of Ryan and how much we’d love to have him here.”

Kent also has options abroad, but again nobody is willing to meet Liverpool’s asking price and the player is now thought to favour a return to Ibrox.

News of Rangers’ hopes of arranging a deal for Kent come after the Sunday Mirror revealed the Glaswegians had seen an approach for Manchester City’s Phil Foden rejected.

The paper claims that Rangers and Roma both submitted loan enquiries for the talented England U21 star, only for the offers to be rejected by Pep Guardiola, with the City boss hoping to integrate the youngster in his side more frequently this season.
