Liverpool starlet Ryan Kent was magnificent during his loan spell at Rangers last season, earning the plaudits of his manager Steven Gerrard, former Liverpool player himself. This summer, Kent has returned to Liverpool but Rangers are hoping they can convince Liverpool to get Ryan Kent for another campaign. But with Jurgen Klopp also being a fan of the winger, it is still not clear where his future lies.
The 22-year old is already under contract with Liverpool since he was seven years old but has been involved in many loan deals in the last years. He started off his loan career at Coventry during the 2015/2016 campaign, moving to Barnsley the following season. Kent then played half a season at Freiburg but only managed in getting six appearances. During the winter break, he moved to Bristol City where he played in eleven games. Last season, he finally had his big break-through at the Rangers.
Now the question is whether he is going to get his chance to compete with players like Sadio Mané, Ben Woodburn, Xherdan Shaqiri and Mohamed Salah or if he is going on a fifth loan agreement. It’s no secret that Rangers hope to bring Ryan Kent back to Ibrox after his impressive performances last season. Now that Daniel Candeias has moved to Genclerbirligi, there is even more pressure on Rangers to convince Kent to stay for another year.
Who knows? Maybe one day he can move back to Liverpool together with his current manager Steven Gerrard. Ex-Spurs and Liverpool star Danny Murphy has already hinted that he sees Gerrard as the perfect replacement for when Klopp decides to move back to Germany. Murphy thinks Klopp might manage Bayern Munich in the future, but probably not until someone like Gerrard is ready to take over at Liverpool.
