Rangers are more clued up than most when it comes to spotting a good loan deal.
After all, this is the club who brought in Ryan Kent from Liverpool last season and helped him win the Scottish PFA’s Young Player of the Year award.
Similarly, this year they snapped up Sheyi Ojo from the Reds, and while he may not have had the same instant impact as his teammate, there is clearly a player in there somewhere.
And it would appear that they are hoping to repeat the feat once again with their latest rumoured target.
According to a report from Football Insider, the Gers are keen on Liverpool midfielder Herbie Kane, and pundit Danny Mills thinks they have every chance of landing him.
Speaking to Football Insider, he said: “They know what coaching he will get, the style of play that Gerrard wants to play, they’ll know everything.
“The support structure, everything around him, and that is what clubs look at.
“They’re not just looking at minutes. Is he going to develop as a player? Is he going to develop as a person? All these things come into it.
“And as I’ve said the McAllister-Gerrard-Beale connection is absolutely superb, it’s almost like being promoted from Liverpool U21s to Rangers as it’ll be a set-up he’s very, very familiar with.”
This connection between Gerrard and Liverpool does seem to be one that Rangers are keen to cultivate and exploit, and you would always assume that in a situation like this, the manager’s association with the European champions will give him an edge.
As for Kane, the boy has talent.
He shone during his spell with Doncaster Rovers last term, hitting seven goals and 10 assists for the League One side.
If he could come in for the second half of the season and replicate that kind of creativity from the heart of midfield then he could be a very valuable option for the Gers.
Who knows, he might even turn out to be another Ryan Kent – and what a coup that would be.
