Former Sky Sports pundit Charlie Nicholas says that Ryan Kent is now worth double the £7.5m that Rangers paid Liverpool for the winger 18 months ago.
The 24-year-old, who has scored 11 goals and contributed 16 assists for the Light Blues this season, has improved hugely since arriving at Ibrox and Nicholas believes much of the credit has to go to manager Steven Gerrard:
“Ryan Kent was a big buy, but he has doubled his value at least since his time at Rangers. Gerrard now has saleable assets and has made every player better.”
Kent has been linked with the likes of Leeds United and Aston Villa in the past, but his performances for the Gers have moved him on to the next level.
He has had some dips in form this season but, for the most part, there is no doubt he has progressed as a player under the guidance of Gerrard.
Whether Rangers would even accept £15m for Kent now, though, it is questionable. The Scottish club are thought to be open to selling certain players to balance the books in the summer but the Englishman is unlikely to be one of those who would be available for sale.
