Leeds United are interested in signing young Liverpool duo

A product of the Liverpool youth academy, before joining Rangers, Kent had loan stints at Coventry City, Barnsley, Freiburg and Bristol City.

Gerrard's Liverpool connections and Kent's development under him will give Rangers an advantage in negotiations but Leeds are pushing to make progress after being asked by Bielsa to significantly increase his choice of wide players.

The Scottish Sun claim that Steven Gerrard is desperate to bring the 22-year-old back to Ibrox this summer, after an excellent season-long loan at Ibrox during the 2018-19 campaign.

The England Under 21 global is highly-rated at Anfield and signed a contract extension last summer before heading to French side Reims on loan. It is however understood that there are a few Premier League sides that are interested in the duo.

Last season, he started three Ligue 1 matches for Reims, making another 12 substitute appearances.

Ojo only played 15 games last season and just over 700 minutes for the French side last season, and with no goals or assists you can't say that it was the most successful loan spell.

There is much speculation surrounding interest from Premier League newboys Aston Villa and Championship hopefuls Leeds United. However, it seems uncertain whether the club will get the midfielder for another season.

It's on that basis that the Gers will be hoping Liverpool opt for another short-term move for Kent rather than cashing in this summer.

It is clear to see that Rangers fans and even the club itself want Kent to return to Rangers this summer.
