A Sky Sports News report has claimed that the Rangers Ryan Kent deal could eventually rise to £7.5m with Liverpool retaining a 20% sell-on clause.
The report claims that there is a guaranteed £6.5m fee with £1m in add-ons dependent on numerous factors.
According to Sky Sports, the 20% sell-on clause was important as “there is a belief at Liverpool that Kent will return to England and the Premier League at some point in the future.”
The winger has signed a four-year-deal with the Gers after spending the 2018/19 season on loan at Ibrox.

The signing of Kent sent Rangers fans into delirium with many always imagining we’d only ever see the winger back at Ibrox on loan.
The fact Rangers have shelled out so much on the player shows just how much both the Ibrox club and Steven Gerrard rate Kent.
At only 22, there is real hope Kent can go on to become a top, top player at Ibrox and a real asset to the club.
The player’s attitude certainly suggests that he will do everything in his power to do so this season.
Upon signing, Kent made it clear that there’s only been one place the tricky winger wanted to return this season.
“I am delighted to be back here,” Kent told RangersTV.
“It has been a quite a long summer, a lot of things could have potentially happened but I am delighted to be here.
“I knew if I kept myself correct something good would happen soon and I have been ticking over, keeping myself to myself and this has happened now and I’m over the moon.
“I got a feel for what it was to be a Rangers player, I felt like there was unfinished business from last year and I am hoping to put that right.”
Kent’s potential £7.5m signing makes him the second most expensive player in Rangers’ history, still some way away from the £12m the club once shelled out for Tore Andre Flo.
