Rangers boss Steven Gerrard has made no secret of his desire to bring Kent back to Ibrox after what was a successful loan spell last term.
Rangers have been thrashing out a deal with Liverpool for the winger for much of the summer so far, but have not been able to get the transfer over the line.
Kent is said to be valued at £7 million by Liverpool (Sky Sports), so Rangers may have to take him on loan again.
The Reds are yet to sanction a temporary deal as Jurgen Klopp wanted to take a closer look at him, but Rangers have hope of securing the signing of Kent sooner than anticipated now.
Liverpool are set to tour USA soon, and there is no certainties that Kent will be in the travelling squad.
If he doesn’t fly across the Atlantic, it is expected that he will immediately move north of the border to Ibrox, where he will join up with Rangers again.
If Rangers can complete a deal for Kent it would be a major boost for Gerrard’s side’s chances.
Kent looked Rangers most creative player last season, and with a year’s experience under his belt, he could take the league by storm this term.
