Rangers fans have today been given a nice morning boost regarding Ryan Kent’s future, as he has admitted that he’s open to staying at Ibrox.
The Liverpool loan star has been an absolute revelation at Ibrox this season. He’s managaed to make 24 appearances for the club this term, bagging three goals and three assists this season.
Funnily enough, they aren’t stats that particularly make for good reading. Yet, they certainly don’t tell the whole story when it comes to the tricky winger.
Kent has quickly become a fans-favourite due to his dazzling displays down the left. Nobody at Ibrox has quicker feet than him, and he boosted his standing with supporters through his involvement in the goal against Celtic on Saturday.
And, as he looks to the future, he’s opened up on the possibility of moving to Glasgow permanently. Speaking in the Scotsman, Kent opened up on his future.
“It’s something I’m considering.
“It’s a chat Rangers are going to have to have with Liverpool because I still have three years left on my contract there. So it’s a bit out of my hands.
“The honest answer is I don’t know what my future holds. That’s something Jurgen Klopp will have to answer.”
No chance of a Liverpool call-up
Let’s be honest. As much as everyone in the blue half of Glasgow rates Kent, he’s nowhere near that Liverpool set-up.
The Merseysiders would surely be open to speaking to Rangers regarding the winger. The likes of Sadio Mane has his position sewn up, and it’ll be a long time before Kent reaches anything like those standards.
Kent is contracted to Anfield until 2022, and would reportedly cost around £2million to take for good. Considering the likes of Eros Grezda was signed up for more than that, Rangers should bite the hand off.
It’s been shown in recent weeks just how much the club have missed Kent. He offers so much going forward, and is Rangers’ liveliest player in the final third.
It’s clear that the player would be open to a deal. Liverpool, however, haven’t given any indication of where they stand on the player’s future.
Is this deal a goer? We likely won’t know until the summer.
