Leeds United want Rangers duo Ryan Kent and Glen Kamara this summer
Leeds United are interested in signing Rangers duo Glen Kamara and Ryan Kent this summer, according to GIVEMESPORT.
They claim the Elland Road outfit are considering moves for the Ibrox duo in a bid to secure qualification for European football next season.
Winger Kent, 24, was targeted by Leeds last summer, but Rangers knocked back their £10 million bid, while central midfielder Kamara, 25, is also valued at around the same fee [Daily Mail].
Their contracts both expire in 2023, and while the Scottish champions would not ideally sell, the idea of raising money to strengthen the squad in a post-pandemic market should suitors meet their demands could be tempting to Rangers.
However, Leeds are yet to table a formal bid, but deals for the duo could be done at the right price.
We need to strengthen in the middle of the park and in attacking midfield to have a realistic chance of breaking into the Premier League top-six in 2021-22, and it appears Leeds have identified feasible targets.
Landing the Rangers duo should not cost more than £25million, and that is good business given their top qualities in their respective positions.
Leeds head coach Marcelo Bielsa remains an admirer of Kent, and his attacking prowess surely would help improve us in the final third.
We lack quality depth at the moment and the Liverpool academy graduate can bring that to the table.
Kalvin Phillips needs a top cover and competition, and Kamara proved himself on the biggest stage in European international football last month.
The Arsenal academy graduate was arguably Finland’s best player at the Euros, and he would not look out of place in the Premier League.
We could struggle to land them both this season, though, especially if Rangers qualify for the Champions League group stages.
Not many players would reject the chance to play in Europe’s elite competition and potentially win a domestic silverware for the unknown.
