Liverpool wonderkid Curtis Jones is open to following Ryan Kent to Rangers in the summer window, Football Insider understands.

Football Insider revealed last weekend the Glasgow giants are plotting a triple swoop for Anfield rising stars Kent, Jones and Ben Woodburn.

Manager Steven Gerrard is keen to make further use of his connections at the club where he has legendary status and managed the Under-18s before taking up his Rangers role.

Jones is on his radar because of his ability to create and score goals as well as his versatility to operate in a number of attacking positions, including anywhere behind the main striker and even in central midfield.

An Ibrox source has told Football Insider that the teenager, who only turned 18 in January, is interested in following Kent and Ovie Ejaria in joining Rangers on loan.

Ejaria quit midway through his loan this season to return to Liverpool before then joining English Championship outfit Reading in the January window.

Kent has been major success at Rangers and was nominated on Wednesday for the Scottish player of the year award.

Rangers are keen to have him back next season, either on a fresh loan or a permanent deal, but fear they will be priced out of a move for the 22-year-old.

Jones has one Liverpool first-team appearance under his belt, which came in January’s FA Cup defeat to Wolves, but is a regular for the club’s Under-23s side in an attacking role.

Operating mainly in a left-sided attacking role, he has scored four times in his last four matches for the Under-23s.

In other Rangers news, it can be REVEALED that the club is to offload a big fans favourite after a surprise move from Gerrard.
