Leeds United keen to sign Rangers winger Ryan Kent

Leeds United are reportedly keen to sign Rangers winger Ryan Kent in the summer transfer window.

According to 90 Min, the Whites have joined the likes of Everton, Wolves and newly promoted Fulham, to bring the 25-year-old to the Premier League.

Rangers do not want to sell him, but at the same time, they are concerned about losing him for free.

Kent will have only 12 months left on his contract at the end of the season, and he is facing an uncertain future.


Kent has been superb this season for the Gers, once again.

He was a key player under Steven Gerrard, who dubbed the winger “phenomenal” in September [Sky Sports], and has continued his impressive form under Giovanni van Bronckhorst as well.

The dazzling winger was outstanding against RB Leipzig on Thursday (5 May) and helped the Gers reach the final of the Europa League.

His contract situation could force Rangers into making a decision in the summer. Surely they don’t want to see a player of his calibre leave for nothing, a situation they have faced with Connor Goldson.

For Leeds, he could be fantastic addition especially if Raphinha leaves the club in the summer.

To be fair, Leeds are long-term admirers of Kent but whether they can land him largely depends on where they finish at the end of the season.

Surely, the Whites will have no chances of luring him to Elland Road in the summer, if they drop down to the Championship.
