Liverpool midfielder Jordan Rossiter will speak to Rangers this week ahead of a prospective move.

The England U19 international captain is out of contract in the summer and has yet to agree new terms.

Sportsmail reported this week that Rangers were keen on the 19-year-old and have now made an official approach to Liverpool asking permission to talk to Rossiter, who has been with the club since he was six and was tipped to follow in the footsteps of Steven Gerrard.

Liverpool would demand £8million at least in compensation but risk losing him for £250,000 should he go to Scotland.

Manchester City, Tottenham and Udinese have also shown an interest and a move to Rangers would depend on Rossiter being able to fit into Rangers’ more limited wage structure. However, it would represent good business for the club on their return to the Scottish Premiership.

Rossiter has had a hamstring injury this season and last figured under Jurgen Klopp in the Europa League against FC Sion. He has slipped down the pecking order behind the likes of Kevin Stewart who agreed a new contract in February.
