Ovie Ejaria has welcomed Dominic Solanke to join him at Rangers if the opportunity presents itself to him in January.
The Liverpool striker has been tipped to leave the club on a temporary basis in search of regular first team football when the transfer window re-opens upon the turn of the year.
Rangers have inevitably emerged as likely candidates to sign the 21-year-old on the basis of manager Steven Gerrard’s ties to the club.
The Anfield great signed both Ejaria and Ryan Kent on loan deals during the summer, as well as picking up Jon Flanagan following his release.
Ejaria has now endorsed a move to Ibrox and believes Solanke would make an excellent signing in the club’s bid to challenge Celtic.
He said: “Rangers are a very good club and I’ve enjoyed my time here so far,” per Daily Mail. “If I was to speak to Dom about it, I would only have good things to say about Rangers.”
“Dom is a very good player. I’ve known him for a very long time. He’s another goalscorer. He scores a lot of goals, so if he was to come to Rangers in January, it would be a very good addition to the squad.”
Solanke is yet to make a senior appearance for Jurgen Klopp’s side so far this season, making the matchday squad just once as an unused substitute in the League Cup defeat to Chelsea. His only two outings have come for the U23s in wins over Swansea and Leicester, both in which he scored.
Ejaria has meanwhile managed 25 appearances across all competitions for Rangers, whilst Kent has played 22 times.
The possibility of Divock Origi leaving in January does, however, makes Solanke’s situation at the club slightly trickier as Klopp strives to retain his squad depth.
Four goals in two games for England’s U21s against Italy and Denmark during the last international break underlined his need for regular minutes as a means of progressing his development.
Rangers may well pose as the ideal short term home.
