With Steven Gerrard all set to take over as the new Rangers boss at the end of this campaign, it won’t be a surprise if he looks to go back to his beloved Liverpool in search of some quality players this summer. One of the Reds’ rising stars goes by the name of Yan Dhanda, who has put in some impressive performances for the Liverpool youth teams over the past few years.
However, the 19-year-old’s contract with the Merseyside club is set to run out at the end of this season which indicates that any foreign club can sign him on a free transfer when the transfer window opens in the summer. The new Gers boss has already managed Dhanda earlier this season and knows the player well. Hence, the youngster could flourish under the guidance of Gerrard if given the opportunity to showcase his skills at the Ibrox Stadium.
Dhanda has graduated from the Liverpool academy and could be on his way out of Merseyside this summer with his contract at the Merseyside club coming to an end. He has made 17 appearances for the Reds Under-23 side in the Premier League 2 this season, scoring three goals while grabbing one assist. The Birmingham-born player has also represented the England national team at the Under-17 level and has one international goal to his name.
Dhanda is extremely versatile and can operate in a number of different positions across the pitch. The Indian heritage player can play on either wing or in the number 10 position. He can also be deployed as a forward up top which makes him a perfect fit for the Teddy Bears.
The 19-year-old is technically adept on the ball and has a keen eye for a goal. He primarily plays on the left flank and possesses a lot of pace and agility while also having the ability to pick out a defence-splitting pass. Dhanda has all the makings of a future star in European football so Rangers should do all they can to get hold of his services in the near future.
The Reds wonder-kid has slowly managed to rise up the ranks at Liverpool, starting off at the youth level and then featuring for their Under-18 side. He managed to break into the Liverpool Under-23 team last year and has since managed to keep his place under the stewardship of Neil Critchley. However, the teenage prospect has still not managed to get an opportunity in Jurgen Klopp’s first-team so he might benefit from a move in the summer but whether it is to the Ibrox Stadium remains to be seen.
