Rangers: Ibrox side can land next Ryan Kent this summer

Despite relinquishing the Premiership title last season, Rangers still managed to win the Scottish Cup and make it to the final of the Europa League.

One figure in Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s side who played a big part in the campaign was winger Ryan Kent.

With 46 appearances to his name across all competitions, the Englishman scored three goals and delivered an impressive haul of 20 assists.

To further highlight his attacking talent, no other player in the Scottish top flight ended the season with a higher average of dribbles per game than Kent’s 2.1.

This shows just how successful a move it was from the Gers to secure a permanent deal for the winger from Liverpool in the summer of 2019.

With the current transfer window open, the Ibrox outfit could have the chance to land their next version of the former Anfield attacker.

How many signings did Rangers make in the last summer window?

Earlier this month, it was claimed on Twitter by talkSPORT presenter Geoff Peters that Rangers are one of the clubs looking at Blackburn Rovers winger Tyrhys Dolan, who could be available to purchase for a fee of £2m-£3m this summer.

Having spent three years in Preston North End’s youth ranks after moving from Manchester City in 2017, the 20-year-old joined Blackburn in the summer of 2020.

His previous campaign at the Lancashire club saw the Mancunian score four goals and deliver three assists in 34 Championship outings. In those appearances, the starlet had 30 attempts at goal and delivered 33 crosses in total whilst playing in numerous attacking positions.

To further highlight his attacking talent and the similarities between him and Kent, only three other Blackburn players racked up a higher average of dribbles per game than Dolan’s 1.1.

Was Ryan Kent Rangers' best player last season?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Labelled a “manager’s dream” by his former boss Tony Mowbray, the £3.6k-per-week youngster has certainly shown early signs that he could become a top attacking player in the future.

With that in mind, if Blackburn are willing to let their young winger leave on a permanent basis this summer, Rangers should definitely do all that they can to get him to Ibrox.

If the attacker has a chance of replicating the impact that Kent has made on the team since his arrival in Glasgow, then this is an opportunity which should not be passed up by the Light Blues’ hierarchy.
