Leeds United must put in tempting bid to sign Rangers winger Ryan Kent

Leeds United must come up with a tempting bid to sign Rangers winger Ryan Kent this summer.

The Gers winger put in a virtuoso display on Saturday (30 July) against Livingston in the Scottish Premiership opening game, as Rangers won 2-1.

Kent produced a moment of brilliance and created a brilliance chance from which Scott Arfield scored to equalise.

The 25-year-old has shown time and again that he can be a matchwinner for Rangers, and has the capability to change the complexion of the game.

Jesse Marsch has assembled a very good squad despite losing two key players in Raphinha and Kalvin Phillips.

However, the Whites are not done yet. They can still look to add another attacking midfielder or winger if they find it hard to land a striker this summer.

Leeds have been long-term admirers of Kent, with 90 Min reporting on May 6 that the Whites remain keen to sign the former Liverpool winger.

After his brilliant performance against Livingston, Marsch should ask Victor Orta to get him Kent. He would cost less than half the money that Charles De Ketelaere would have fetched if he had joined the Whites.

In fact, Leeds can get him at a reasonable price considering that Kent has less than a year remaining on his current deal at Ibrox.

Giovanni van Bronckhorst suggested (29 July) that getting the contract sorted for Kent is a top priority for the club, and the time is about perfect for Leeds to make a move and disrupt their plans.

In other Leeds United news, the Whites have submitted a fresh bid to sign their first-choice target this summer as a Champions League club has pulled out of the deal.
