Rangers begin talks about signing Liverpool loanee Ojo outright

By | October 17, 2019

Steven Gerrard’s Rangers are said to have discussed the possibility of landing Liverpool’s Sheyi Ojo on a permanent deal, according to a recent report by Football Insider.

The attacker is currently on loan with the Scottish club and appears to have become an important member of Steven Gerrard’s side already.

Liverpool are believed to be likely open to offers for the 22-year-old star next summer, once his loan deal with the Gers comes to an end, although Rangers are understood to going to be needing to stump up a figure of several million to make Sheyi’s stay at Ibrox permanent.

As mentioned, Sheyi has been a key member of Steven Gerrard’s roster this season and appears to be one of the first players on the teamsheet more often than not.

According to data collected by TransferMarkt, the 22-year-old star has already made 17 outings in all competitions for the Gers, contributing with 5 goals and 4 assists. To put those match figures into context, the Reds man has only missed three matches so far and has made the joint third-most appearances.

Ojo has chipped in with some important heronries already – his winning goal against the Dutch club, Jaap Stam’s Feyenoord in the UEFA Europa League is just one that stands out – so it should not come as a surprise to hear that the Gers are considering to make a move to land him permanently.
