Both Rangers and Leeds United are reportedly interested in Liverpool’s Ryan Kent. Both are fantastic options for a loan deal.

The Mirror say that Liverpool have rejected offers from both of them, however. For now, at least – you’d imagine the real decision comes after pre-season.

Liverpool’s lack of first-choice options this summer has provided the likes of Kent and Harry Wilson with an opportunity. The club will look at them, asses if they’re good enough or not, and decide where they spend next season.

Will it be at Anfield? It doesn’t seem probable, certainly, but there’s a decent chance. More likely, though, is a loan deal at the end of things for a player Liverpool reportedly values at £12m.

Both Rangers and Leeds represent great options for Kent. Really, they’re as ideal as they come.

We’ve been over the positives that Steven Gerrard and Rangers provide before, principle among them the example that Virgil van Dijk set.


As for Leeds, working under a coach like Bielsa could work absolute wonders for Kent.

While there, he would learn about pressing, shape, and attacking with pace under one of the most influential coaches of the last 30 years. All are important factors in Jurgen Klopp’s system, too, and Kent could put himself in a tempting position.

And much like with Rangers, he’d be playing in a side pushing for the top honours. Once again, that’s a key thing to learn if you want a future with Liverpool.

All in all, be it Rangers or Leeds, Kent would benefit from a loan to either – but playing under Bielsa may just top the lot.
