Glasgow Rangers winger Ryan Kent could be a player in demand this summer, with Leeds United keeping a close tab on his situation.
According to reports from The Mirror, Marcelo Bielsa is monitoring a number of wingers in this window, and Kent is one of them.
Leeds attempted to lure Kent away from Ibrox in 2020.
Bielsa is known to be a big fan of Kent and the Argentine tried to take him to Elland Road twice, including an offer in the region of £10million last summer. However, Rangers stood firm on their decision to not ket him go.
Kent is once again being targeted by Leeds, although Club Brugge’s Dutchman Noa Lang is among their top priorities this summer.
The Gers are under no pressure to sell their prized assets. However, very little from sales while investing around £40 million since Steven Gerrard took charge three years ago.
The likes of Glen Kamara and Alfredo Morelos are being targeted by several clubs, but Kent is arguably their most saleable asset.
If Leeds come up with a handsome transfer offer for Kent, Rangers could be tempted to offload him.
Kent would be a cracking signing for Leeds. The Whites have already signed Jack Harrison on a permanent deal, but there could be space for a new addition if the likes of Tyler Roberts or Helder Costa depart this summer.
The former Liverpool winger was outstanding last season for Rangers, managing 13 goals and 15 assists across all competitions.
Kent has proved his class in Scotland, and he would be eager to show his quality in the Premier League as well if given an opportunity.
Victor Orta is apparently happy to leave it until late in the window, and getting Kent on board would be a massive coup for them.
