Report: Rangers teenager Kai Kennedy considered by Roma

European club Roma are reportedly keen on Rangers teenager Kai Kennedy.

According to the Daily Record, Italian giants Roma are lining up a move for the 17-year-old rising star at Ibrox.

It is understood that the Serie A outfit are keen on him after watching him help Rangers’ Under-17s side win the Al Kass International Cup in Qatar back in February.

The report details Steven Gerrard’s side could have a fight to keep their prized asset following his performances and Roma hope to “tempt” him to join them.

TBR’s View:

Rangers have shown recently that they have a lot of quality coming through their academy ranks and most importantly senior manager Gerrard is not afraid to introduce them to the first-team if they are ready.

Kennedy is still at the beginning of his path into football, but it looks like the Light Blues may have to fast-track him if they want to keep suitors Roma away.

He is a skilful wide player that has dazzled at youth level, but aged 17 it’s difficult to tell if he’s ready for a step up.

Rangers don’t want to keep losing their best upcoming talents and need to run the rule over Kennedy.
