Rangers are desperate to sign Liverpool winger Ryan Kent on a permanent basis, The Scottish Sun reported a month ago.
Kent is on loan at Ibrox and is viewed as the Gers' top target after a successful campaign so far.
Liverpool's reported interest in Leeds United winger Jack Clarke could help Rangers out.
The Daily Express report Liverpool want to sign the Leeds sensation in the summer, reporting they have scouted him extensively.
Liverpool want to push to sign the teenager regardless of whether Leeds win promotion.
If the Reds sign Clarke, there may simply be no more room at Liverpool for Kent.
Liverpool already have Harry Wilson set to return to Anfield from his loan at Derby, which has been even more impressive than Kent's efforts.
There will only be room for one of them in Liverpool's ultra-competitive first team squad, and Clarke potentially being added raises the stakes further.
Rangers assistant Gary McAllister told the Scottish Sun last week that Rangers expect Kent to be given a chance initially at Liverpool next summer to prove himself.
The Reds' signing Clarke would be a game changer, and open to door for Rangers to get their man on a permanent deal.
