Steven Gerrard looks set to try and raid his former club Rangers as the Liverpool legend wants to bring Ryan Kent and Glen Kamara to Aston Villa.
Gerrard was unveiled as Villa's new manager on Thursday morning after the side sacked Dean Smith.
Villa had struggled under Smith, and the side are hovering perilously above the relegation zone.
The 41-year-old has spent the last three seasons in Scotland, and he was able to break Celtic's monopoly on the Scottish Premiership.
Kent and Kamara were key to Rangers' success under Gerrard, and the Liverpudlian is keen to bring the pair to the West Midlands.
Gerrard brought Kent up to Scotland in 2019, when Liverpool agreed to part ways with the winger for £7.5million.
Like Gerrard, Kent is from Liverpool, and he spent the entirety of his youth career at Anfield.
Kent has been a longtime target of Leeds United, but with Marcelo Bielsa's recent acquisition of Daniel James, Leeds seem to have cooled their interest.
The Daily Mail are reporting that Gerrard is keen to bring the winger back to England.

Kamara has been a long term target of Aston Villa.
And with the arrival of Gerrard, the Daily Record are reporting that they have doubled down on their efforts to secure the services of the Finnish international.
Villa were close to making an offer of around £6million over the summer, and they could return with a similar bid.
Gerrard has already signed Kamara once when he brought the 26-year-old to Glasgow from Dundee.
