Since being given a chance by Steven Gerrard at Rangers, firstly on loan and then permanently, Ryan Kent has proved himself to be one of the best wingers in the Scottish Premiership but he may be pulled back to the Premier League by Leeds United, according to former Rangers defender Michael Ball.
Kent was brought to Ibrox from Liverpool when Gerrard took up his first managerial role as he knew him through his time at Anfield as an academy coach, and Kent has paid back his faith in him by helping Rangers win the title and reach over 100 points in a brilliant invincible campaign.
Should Leeds sign Kent?
However, his performances have started to attract interest from Premier League clubs, mainly Leeds, who also tried to sign him last summer before they decided to make what now looks to be a smart addition in Raphinha.
Despite improving season after season, Rangers may struggle to keep hold of one of their star players this summer as Kent appears to have the ability to perform in the Premier League, something Ball expects to be a cause for concern as he told The Transfer Tavern:
“When you have a good year, you want to capitalise and get better terms and Leeds have shown an interest and it’s a huge pull to come back into the Premier League.”
Kent has gone about his business and proved why Liverpool had him on their books having netted 26 goals and 27 assists in 128 games for the Scottish league champions.
After Raphinha picked up an injury during the back end of this season Bielsa may want to add more strength in depth to his attacking lineup, especially if reports are to be believed and that Tyler Roberts is set to be on the move this summer.
