Liverpool legend turned Rangers manager Steven Gerrard is eyeing a move for highly-rated Manchester City defender Kean Bryan, the Scottish Sun reports.
Bryan, 21, impressed on loan at Oldham last season in League One and despite their eventual relegation to League Two, was a standout performer and won the Latics’ Young Player of the Year award.
That led to the Manchester lad being linked with a move to Premier League side Brighton in June, although that story seems to have gone cold.
According to the report, several English Championship clubs are interested in Bryan alongside Scottish side Rangers, and with just a year left on his contract at City, he is likely to depart on a permanent deal.
Of interest, he played alongside Steven Gerrard’s cousin, Anthony Gerrard, at Oldham last season, which may be related to the former Liverpool man’s interest.
A former England under-20 international, Bryan can play as a defender or holding midfielder, and his versatility makes him an appealing option to several coaches in England as well as Scotland where Gerrard who has taken charge of Rangers north of the border.
