Rangers are close to an agreement with Liverpool to sign winger Ryan Kent for a fee in the region of £7m, according to two local reliable journalists.
Paul Joyce of The Times has close ties with LFC and has tweeted out that the Gers are closing in on a deal for the 22-year-old. A similarly reliable source, former Liverpool Echo reporter, James Pearce has confirmed the report:
Glasgow Rangers close to agreeing permanent deal for Liverpool’s Ryan Kent. Fee would be in region of £6/7m. Personal terms and medical to do once club agreement.

Ryan Kent to Rangers for around £7million is a decent deal for all parties. #LFC in advanced talks – Reds will insist on a sell-on clause.

Fans on Twitter are absolutely delighted that Kent’s move to Ibrox looks to have been finalised, although they are all trying not to get their hopes up before the deal is secured:

After the disappointing performance in the Old Firm derby yesterday, this news will certainly boost morale among supporters. It’s a deal that seems to suit both parties with Reds manager Jurgen Klopp having stated earlier this summer that they wanted Kent to leave on a permanent basis.
Liverpool will have a sell-on clause included in the deal but Rangers supporters will just be happy when he officially signs on the dotted line.
