Rangers are close to tying up a deal for Liverpool midfielder Jordan Rossiter, The Mail report.

Rossiter has not have the same first team chances under new boss Jurgen Klopp as he did under Brendan Rodgers, and is on the verge of being talked into a move by Gers manager Mark Warburton.

The 19-year-old's addition would be a coup for the Light Blues, especially if he can live up to the hype placed on him by Liverpool legend Robbie Fowler.

Fowler sent a message on Twitter three years ago which watching Liverpool in an under-19 game, tipping Rossiter as the next Steven Gerrard. 

Former teammate Jamie Carragher also speaks highly of the teenager, believing he is a player who has the potential to go far in the game.

He is quoted by The Mail stating: "I like the look of him. He's got a bit of character and steel that me and Stevie have had. He's a great talent."

Rossiter will get more first team chances at Rangers than he could expect at Liverpool next season, and the stage will be set for him to go on and show why the hype is justified
