Ryan Kent has been quoted by Football Scotland that it is a “possibility” he could join Rangers on a permanent basis this summer, even though some reports suggest Liverpool want £12million for his services.
The 22-year-old has been excellent for Rangers this season, having a hand in 15 goals in all competitions. Scoring six and creating nine, Kent has been one of Rangers most creative players during his 40 outings.
The Liverpool Echo claim Kent’s eye-catching form has caught the attention of parent club Liverpool, which has seen them bump up Kent’s price tag to a whopping £12million ahead of the summer window.
But Kent was asked about whether he is to remain at Rangers beyond the 2018-19 season, and he responded with one word – claiming it is a “possibility”.
Kent has been crucial to the way Rangers have played under Steven Gerrard. At times, Kent has been the only player that has looked capable of winning matches for the Gers.
Indeed, he is loved by Teddy Bears fans. His superb assist in the 1-0 win over Celtic that saw Ryan Jack score instantly endeared himself to the Ibrox support. He scored in the 2-1 loss, but at £12million, is he worth it?
Rangers current club-record transfer fee is £12million, when they signed striker Tore Andre-Flo. But times have changed and if Rangers are to catch Celtic, they need Kent.
