Leeds United preparing £15 million summer bid for Rangers winger Ryan Kent | Sportslens.com



According to The Scottish Sun, Leeds United remain interested in recruiting the services of Rangers winger Ryan Kent and are preparing a £15 million bid ahead of the summer transfer window.

The Elland Road outfit tabled two bids for the Light Blues star last summer, with the last one worth £11 million.

However, Rangers held on to Kent and he helped fire them to their 55th Scottish Premiership title a couple of weeks ago.

Leeds head coach Marcelo Bielsa remains keen on the 24-year-old as he prepares his side for another season in the Premier League, and he has told director of football Victor Orta to try and pull off a deal for Kent before the start of the 2021-22 pre-season.

The Argentine is a huge fan of securing early transfers in the summer transfer window in order to properly bed in new signings at the start of pre-season training.

Whether Rangers will be looking to cash in on Kent this summer remains to be seen, though.

The Ibrox outfit are looking to mount a stiff title defence next term, and manager Steven Gerrard is also eyeing booking a place in the group stages of the 2021-22 Champions League.

Rangers need Kent for the two tasks ahead, and the Liverpool academy graduate is also likely to be looking forward to those challenges.
