Rumour Mongering: Rangers Look to Pick Up Second Liverpool Youngster

Despite finally achieving his dream of getting a hug from Jürgen Klopp, Sergi Canos could allegedly be on his way out if his contract negotiations continue to go poorly.

Sergi Canos was handed a surprise senior team debut when Liverpool faced West Bromwich Albion in their last match of the season. Though the match ended in a draw, it was still a win for the young player as not only did he get to play with the big boys in a real match for the first time, but he finally got the coveted Jürgen Klopp hug he'd been very vocal about coveting for so long.

But things aren't all rosy in the Canos camp, as news emerged shortly after the match that contract negotiations weren't going so well. Canos has one year left on his contract, but he and the club are allegedly far apart on wages — the difference between an offered £3k and a desired £9k per week.

The Independent reports that numerous clubs are supposedly interested in Canos services, from Reading and Fulham to Brentford, where Canos spent the season on loan prior to debuting for Liverpool. But it's Scottish club Rangers — who recently purchased former Liverpool player Jordan Rossiter for a mere £250,000 — who might be keenest, with former Liverpool Academy director Frank McParland currently heading up recruitment at Rangers.

Jürgen Klopp is likely to make many changes, big and small, across the team during his first summer transfer window. The spotlight will most certainly be on the first team, but Klopp's focus on youth will no doubt have him assessing the state of Liverpool's up-and-coming talent. Jordan Rossiter has already been determined to be surplus to requirements, and if Klopp hasn't liked what he's seen in Canos so far, the young Spaniard could be next.
