Sky Sports moot major Leeds United double transfer for Ben Brereton-Diaz and Ryan Kent in summer

Sky Sports have been looking at major transfers that could happen this summer, and Leeds United are heavily involved.

Some of the biggest names have been included, with the likes of Neymar under the microscope for a potential move.

Leeds have been mooted for a couple of big attacking moves to improve in the final third, likely to fill the potential void left by Raphinha.

The first name is a familiar target around Elland Road, with Rangers’ winger Ryan Kent potentially available.

Kent is approaching the final year of his deal, and a move could be forced this summer to avoid losing him for nothing.

The second is Blackburn’s Ben Brereton-Diaz, with his contract running out this summer, although there is an option for another year.

If that doesn’t materialise, the Chilean international could also be another player who is cashed in on by his current club.


This would be a brilliant way to start the summer window and Jesse Marsch’s first transfer period in charge of the club.

With Raphinha potentially leaving and Patrick Bamford suffering constant injuries, Kent and Brereton-Diaz would provide exceptional depth.

On top of that, Leeds wouldn’t need to pay over the odds with both players entering the final years of their current deals.

Marsch will surely want Victor Orta to improve his squad depth, and with RB Salzburg star Brenden Aaronson also high on the list, those three deals could create an arsenal of weapons in the final third.

Bringing players in from the Championship and Scotland has worked massively for Premier League clubs in recent years with Jarrod Bowen and Kieran Tierney to name just two.

Jumping on that bandwagon would give Leeds two perfect options, with one of these shining on the international stage, and the other a standout on European nights for his club.

Make it happen.
