Rangers suffer transfer blow as Leeds approach Ryan Kent

Liverpool had a brilliant 2018-19 season, emerging as Champions League winners for the sixth time in history and for the first time in fourteen years. He also played a major role in leading the French club to the Champions League round-of-16 and was part of the side that defeated Manchester City in the group stages of the competition.

"He'll either move permanently or go out on loan again, there's no way he's staying".

Liverpool will demand £12 million ($15.3m) for Ryan Kent this summer, with the young winger set to turn down the chance to join Leeds United on loan.

Ibrox manager Steven Gerrard has made no attempt to hide his desire to take the winger back for another season, although a permanent deal is out of the question due to his price tag.

Some reports claim that Jurgen Klopp might send out Kent on loan to Leeds United leaving Gerrard high and dry.

He scored an impressive 16 goals and made four assists in 43 Championship games for Derby last season as Frank Lampard's men just missed out on promotion to the Premier League.

But these have been countered by the English press, including the Evening Standard's David Lynch-formerly a journalist for the club.

He is not short of suitors, with Aston Villa amongst the clubs in England tipped to be keen on securing his services.

On one hand, reports from France are closer to Lille and the player, but on the other, the Merseyside press have a closer contact with Liverpool themselves.

Kent has been out on a series of loan spells and it remains to be seen how the winger feels about yet another temporary move.
