Ryan Kent is in talks with a number of English clubs with Everton among those keen on his signing and hoping to bring him back to Merseyside, TEAMtalk understands.

The former Liverpool winger is out of contract at Rangers this summer and has made it clear to the Scottish giants that he is not signing a new deal.

The 26-year-old moved to Ibrox back on a permanent deal in summer 2019, having impressed while on loan. Now in his fifth season for Gers, he has scored 33 times in 218 appearances.

Kent also has 28 assists during that time, meaning he has a goal involvement every 3.5 appearances for Rangers.

However, the player is now considering a number of approaches as he decides where to play next.

Kent has been offered a lucrative contract by Turkish giants Fenerbahce, with the winger seemingly close to an agreement.

However, before putting pen to paper in Turkey, TEAMtalk has been told that he has been assessing all options available to him.

And we can reveal that a number of other options are also on the cards, with a host of English sides all in contention for his signature.

In addition, Bournemouth are keen to bring Kent to the south coast, with former Liverpool teammate Dominic Solake a Cherries regular.
