The talented attacker is on loan at the Ibrox heavyweights.
But, according to The Sun, Steven Gerrard is desperate to keep him north of the border permanently.
Kent struggled during temporary stints in Germany and at Bristol City.
It’s suggested he’d welcome the opportunity to remain in Scotland full time though.
Rangers eased past St Mirren on Saturday after referee Andrew Dallas awarded them four penalties.
Three were converted. James Tavernier grabbed two and Jermain Defoe scored the fourth.
“There could’ve been five penalties, which is very strange,” Gerrard said after the match.
“We feel as if the officials have missed a clear one on Alfredo [Morelos].
“Some you get, some you don’t.”
Gerrard has hailed Kent but doesn’t want him to get complacent.
“He’s been excellent for us,” he explained.
“He’s in good form, he’s happy.
“But I’m going to keep pushing him because I want him to be hungrier to score more goals and I want him to keep being hungry to improve his numbers.
“Today he could have got two goals, maybe three, so it was a good performance and I think he’s got man of the match.
“But for me it’s my job to push him and that’s what I’ll do.”
Kent has played 15 games for Rangers this term and scored five goals.
Under Gerrard’s stewardship, his side are performing well.
They sit second in the table, eight points behind arch rivals Celtic.
The Gers face Aberdeen on Wednesday as they eye a title push.
