Former Rangers defender Michael Ball believes Leeds United are the main suitors for Rangers’ Ryan Kent this summer.
Kent arrived at Ibrox permanently from Liverpool in 2019, with Sky Sports reporting the deal was worth up to £7.5m.
The winger had played for Rangers on loan the season prior to his permanent move, scoring six goals and delivering four assists.
Kent has continued to go from strength to strength under Steven Gerrard, with his contribution to the team improving year on year.
He produced the best return of his career so far last term, scoring 13 goals and registering 15 assists in all competitions.
It’s no surprise, then, that he is being linked with a move away from Ibrox, with Michael Ball exclusively telling Transfer Tavern: “I think Leeds are the main suitors right now for Ryan Kent.
“Since he came to the club, it was quite a surprise the amount of money Rangers paid for Ryan, but he’s paid that back in an abundance and the fans really like him.”
Leeds United have been looking at Kent for a while, as the Scottish Sun reported that the Elland Road outfit bid £11m for the winger last summer and that they may have to up that to £15m this summer if they want to finally land their target.
