Liverpool’s player sales have been extraordinary in recent seasons.
Liverpool’s Michael Edwards has carved out a reputations as one of the shrewdest operators in world football.
Incoming transfers for Virgil van Dijk, Alisson and Mohamed Salah have shown he knows how to spend money wisely.
Where he really comes into his own is when it comes to player sales.
Edwards and Liverpool have pulled off some stupendous coups in recent years, selling back up players for high prices.
You could even argue they stung Barcelona into paying a club record fee for first team star Coutinho, and the Brazilian has not lived up to it.
That’s a combined £46.5 million for three players not good enough for the Reds’ first team, more than paying back the Salah fee.
Now Edwards is reportedly plotting another coup.
This is the same Ryan Kent who had poor loan spells at Freiburg and Bristol City last season.
At Rangers he has been better. But scoring five goals in 36 games is not all that eye catching.
Rangers might not be able to afford Liverpool’s demands.
If they can’t, you can bet Edwards will find a club who will. It’s what he does, and after his recent market success, you can’t blame him for hiking up the winger’s price tag.
