Report: Rangers start talks to bring Liverpool talent Dominic Solanke to Ibrox

Steven Gerrard is unveiled as the new manager of Rangers football Club at Ibrox Stadium on May 4, 2018 in Glasgow, Scotland.

Rangers are reportedly pressing to lure Dominic Solanke to Ibrox.

Steven Gerrard is unveiled as the new manager of Rangers football Club at Ibrox Stadium on May 4, 2018 in Glasgow, Scotland.

According to the Daily Record, Rangers have started preliminary talks to sign Liverpool striker Dominic Solanke on loan – and Steven Gerrard's relationship with Jurgen Klopp may be key.

The Gers have made two signings already this week, as goalkeeper Allan McGregor and midfielder Scott Arfield have both arrived on free transfers, penning pre-contract agreements to join from Hull City and Burnley respectively.

A host of players are being linked with moves to Ibrox thanks to the appointment of a big name in Steven Gerrard, and the new Rangers boss may look to a favour from former club Liverpool.

The Daily Record report that talks have already started with Liverpool over a deal to take striker Dominic Solanke on loan for the season, in the hope of landing a major coup.

Dominic Solanke of Liverpool in action during the Premier League match between Liverpool and Brighton and Hove Albion at Anfield on May 13, 2018 in Liverpool, England.

Solanke, 20, joined Liverpool from Chelsea last summer in a bid to pursue first-team football, and he not only scored his first Premier League goal on the final day of the season with a strike against Brighton and Hove Albion, but also earned his first England cap earlier this term too.

The striker still finds himself behind Roberto Firmino though, and with Liverpool looking for another attacker, Solanke could be farmed out in order to gain first-team experience elsewhere.

Rangers are now thought to be at the front of that particular queue, with the report claiming that Gerrard's friendship with manager Jurgen Klopp may just make a move to Rangers a possibility for Solanke.

With Jason Cummings returning to Nottingham Forest and Eduardo Herrera unwanted, Solanke would be ideal to compete with Alfredo Morelos, and would give Rangers an exciting young striker for a season.
