Rangers: Premier League club make Ryan Kent approach
A Premier League club have reportedly made an approach to try and lure Glasgow Rangers winger Ryan Kent away from Ibrox this summer.
The Lowdown: Contract talks
Rangers are reportedly ‘increasingly hopeful’ that Kent will sign a new contract at Ibrox, with the latest round of talks thought to be positive.
His current deal at expires this summer, meaning that he can leave as a free agent at the end of the campaign should a new contract not be signed.
The Latest: Leeds approach
As per Football Insider, Leeds United have made an approach to try and sign Kent on a free transfer, and have officially registered their interest.
They have been ‘in contact’ with the player’s camp, and hold a long-term interest in him dating back to when Marcelo Bielsa was in charge.
The Verdict: Keep at all costs
Kent is a player that the Gers really need to try and keep hold of at all costs.
Lauded as an ‘incredible‘ athlete by The Athletic reporter Jordan Campbell, the Englishman can dribble with the ball at an immense speed, and ranks in the 91st percentile of all his positional peers outside of Europe’s top five leagues for successful take-ons per match over the last year.
Kent has also shown that he has a consistent end product as well, with no fewer than 88 goal contributions in total since he first signed in the 2018/19 term.
Nonetheless, he still has a lot to offer at 26, and so signing him up to a new deal should be a priority for the Light Blues over the next few months.
