Report: Liverpool youngster Jordan Rossiter keen on Rangers move

Rangers are closing in on the signing of Liverpool midfielder Jordan Rossiter.

Liverpool youngster Jordan Rossiter is keen on a move to Rangers this summer, reports the Liverpool Echo.

The Reds midfielder is out of contract at the end of the season and Mark Warburton’s side are determined to make a move for him.

Indeed, they have already made the initial steps towards signing him, having informed Jurgen Klopp’s side on Friday that they intend to officially approach him about a move.

As he is under 23, they will have to pay a fee for his services, although it will be capped at just £250,000 as they are not an English club.

Talks are set to place over the coming days as Frank McPartland, the former Academy director at Anfield and now Head of Recruitment at Ibrox, is keen to see it over line.

It is likely to happen too, with the Liverpool Echo reporting that the player is keen on moving north of the border.

The England Under-19s international has been forced to consider whether a first team place will be on offer in Jurgen Klopp’s midfield in the near future.

He has determined it won’t be and thus decided to leave, with Rangers able to offer the first team football he craves as they head back into the Scottish Premiership next season.
