Could Rangers £7m Europa League boost help secure Ryan Kent?

If you’d asked Rangers fans what they wanted by the end of the transfer window, there’s a good chance many of them would say two things. Europa League football and Ryan Kent.

After last night’s heroics at a raucous Ibrox, Rangers pipped Legia Warsaw 1-0 to reach the relative land of milk and honey thanks to a last-minute Alfredo Morelos winner.

The Ibrox club stands to make around £7m for their troubles – but could this be a deciding factor in securing the services of Ryan Kent?

Reports earlier in the week suggested that Kent has his “heart set” on a return to Ibrox [Sky Sports] this season but there is also interest in the player from Belgium and France.

The notion that Kent wants to return to Ibrox seems to be the worst kept secret in Scottish football.

Talk over Kent’s future has also intensified as the 22-year-old winger has been left out of Liverpool’s development squad.

Steven Gerrard also admitted that Rangers would never give up trying to sign top players like Ryan Kent [Daily Record].

But – and this is the big thing – Liverpool do not want to loan the player and will only sell him this season.

Reports put Kent’s asking price between £6m to £12m but the reality is it’s unlikely Rangers can afford such an outlay.

But could we arrange a structured deal for Kent with the new Europa League winnings and give the bears the other half of their ideal transfer window?
