With the transfer window under a month away from opening in Scotland, Rangers have quickly established themselves as a team out on a mission.
With three players already signed and a fourth soon on the way, Steven Gerrard’s side are already one of the most active teams in this summers market, with the Rangers boss looking to close the gap on Celtic next season after finishing the campaign nine points off their Glasgow rivals.
And, one main priority in the offseason is to replace Ryan Kent.
The winger was a revelation for the Gers last season, scoring six goals and assisting nine in all competitions under Gerrard as Kent was named the Scottish PFA Young Player of the Year. But, according to recent reports, it is looking unlikely the 22-year-old winger will return to the Ibrox for the 2019/20 campaign, but another exciting name could take his place.
According to the Scotsman, Rangers are close to signing Liverpool youngster Sheyi Ojo on loan for the entirety of next season, and this is an exciting move for the Glaswegian side.
Valued at £1.8 million on Transfermarkt, the 21-year-old attacker is highly rated and has already played for the first-team, making 13 appearances in total and scoring once. And, loan spells at the likes of Wolves and Fulham have shown that Ojo is a player who can go far if he can secure a full season of first-team football.
Able to play on both wings, Ojo is a versatile attacker gifted with lightning pace and a creative mind that makes him a deadly force down the flanks, which makes the 21-year-old the ideal replacement for Kent next season.
Sheyi Ojo could even turn out to be ‘another Ryan Kent’ if he manages to follow in his footsteps during the potential loan spell, which would be great for everyone involved at the club.
The former Rangers loanee made a sizeable impact on the side this season, but in Ojo, the Glasgow faithful could have a new star to admire.
Rangers fans, could Ojo succeed Kent at the club? Let us know!
