Last time Rangers made a move for a player from Liverpool, things worked out pretty well.
Steven Gerrard obviously has stronger links than most to the European champions, and the decision to take Ryan Kent on loan last season was more than gratified by the winger being awarded the Scottish PFA’s Young Player of the Year for his efforts.
And it looks as if the boss might be looking to repeat that success with another swoop for an up and coming Merseyside talent.
According to a report from Football Insider, the Gers are keen on making a move for Kop midfielder Herbie Kane, with Gerrard keen to strengthen his options in the centre of the park as he looks to push Celtic all the way in the title race.
The Light Blues previously tried to land Kane over the summer, but were knocked back, and could reignite that interest next month, with his parent club reportedly open to offers for him, as per Football Insider.
The 21-year-old made his second senior appearance for the Reds in their 5-0 defeat to Aston Villa in the Carabao Cup on Tuesday evening, but did spend last term out on loan at League One side Doncaster Rovers, hitting four goals and seven assists as they just fell short of promotion in the play-offs.
But this feels like a move that could be really beneficial for both clubs and the player himself.
Kane is a talent, but he’s going to struggle to break into a side as heavily stacked as Liverpool’s is right now.
First team football is a must for his development, and where better for him to get that that at Ibrox, playing for a massive club under the tutelage of an Anfield legend?
This would be a real win-win were it to come off.
