European clubs in the battle to sign 17-year-old Rangers attacker

Gers youngster Kai Kennedy is wanted by Man City and Bayern Munich, with fears over his Ibrox future. The Scottish club lost Billy Gilmour to Chelsea in 2017, which was a huge blow, but also showed the talent emerging in the Gers ranks.

The likes of Josh McPake and Leon King have been linked away from Rangers in recent times has emerged through the Gers youth setup, and Kai is the latest. It’s believed that Man City are keen to lure him to the Premier League, with Bavarians have even been alerted by Kai’s potential.

Bayern Munich raided Celtic to sign footballer Liam Morrison over the summer, so another raid on Scottish football for a top teenage talent may not be a huge surprise. Kai’s contract at Ibrox expires in 2021, and Gers are thought to be locked in talks with the forward in an attempt to get him a deal extension.

Earlier this campaign, Gers coach Steven Gerrard called Kai ‘fabulous’, and even has him training around his first team and travelling to senior matches. That means Steven rates Kai highly, but with two of Europe’s elite clubs in the mix, there’s no guarantee that the 17-year-old will remain at Ibrox.
