Rangers could be ready to splash the cash on star winger Ryan Kent following the 21-year old’s increasingly outstanding displays this season at Ibrox.
The on-loan Liverpool winger has confirmed his interest in staying in Govan, and manager Steven Gerrard has made no secret of his admiration of the ex-Freiburg man, and with the speed machine unlikely to usurp Liverpool’s famed attacking trident any time soon, the moment could be spot on for Gerrard to make the deal permanent in January.
Kent’s market value is estimated at between £1.5M and £5M, but with Gerrard’s obvious links to Anfield, he may try to get the player at something closer to the bottom end of that spectrum.
If he was to manage to secure Kent for around £2M, it would be considered an excellent acquisition to set 2019 off with a bang, and if Kent’s recent form is anything to go by, he is a true star in the making.
After a slow start at Ibrox, the tricky dribbler has got up to speed and then some, and completely justified and vindicated his manager’s comments on him – fans and the club alike will be hoping we can retain those services permanently.
