Liverpool had hoped to sell Rangers loan star Sheyi Ojo in a permanent deal this summer, according to a report.
The Liverpool Echo is suggesting that despite Liverpool’s ‘desire’ to sell the winger this summer a permanent move could not be found for the player.
Rangers profited as a consequence. Steven Gerrard swooped to bring the attacker in on loan, but there is no permanent option in his loan agreement.
Of course, this news comes amid Rangers’ apparent chase to bring Ryan Kent back to the club. Like Ojo, the Liverpool youngster headed to Ibrox last summer in a loan deal with no permanent option.
He thrived in Glasgow and Gerrard would love to have him as a permanent fixture at Rangers.
However, Liverpool have decided that Kent is only available in a permanent deal, as reported by the ECHO. A £12 million initial price-tag saw him out of reach for Rangers and Kent looks unlikely to return to Ibrox anytime soon.
Rangers fans might already be fearing another similar situation with Ojo. The 22-year-old has had a wonderful start to the season at Ibrox, scoring four goals and assisting three in his seven appearances so far.
If such form continues, Liverpool will undoubtedly be looking to secure a permanent move for him once again next summer.
