Prime Rangers Target Open About Moving To Leeds United This Summer: A Good Option For Bielsa?

According to the latest reports from Leeds Live, Ryan Kent is said to be open about moving to Leeds United in the summer. United’s Director Of Football Victor Orta is said to be a long term admirer of the Liverpool winger, and he has been in contact with Kent’s representatives over the years.

This should come as a massive boost for Leeds in their pursuit of the winger as Rangers are also in the race for him. The way he settled in at the club in Glasgow could have made Kent biased about only moving to Rangers in the summer. However, the latest reports confirm that he is interested in playing in the Championship again.

Rangers are expected to fight for his signature as Gerrard has given numerous indications that he wants the 22-year-old at Ibrox. Kent also won the young player of the year award at Rangers so one can imagine the kind of impact he had in his debut season in the Scottish Premiership.

Why Rangers need a left winger?

Jack Harrison and Ezgjan Alioski played down the left flank for the Whites for most of the last season. Harrison’s loan spell is about to expire, and he will head back to Manchester City. Leeds United are reportedly again interested in signing him, but we feel that they can do better than that. City are anyway demanding an absurd fee of £20m for a permanent move for him.

Alioski was often pathetic with his final delivery in the attacking third, and he did a much better job as a left-sided fullback. We expect him to continue as a fullback for the next season. Therefore the Whites don’t have any outright left wingers in their roster right now.

Is Kent a good option?

The Englishman had a below-par spell in the Championship before with Bristol City. However, he has come up leaps and bounds in the last year as he was often a game changer for Rangers. He started his season slow but improved as the campaign went by.

Kent is known for his searing pace and ability to beat defenders in one on one situations. However, he has also improved big time with his final delivery and ability to finish off chances. Some of his goals where he delicately chipped the ball over onrushing goalkeepers suggest that he can be an impactful player in front of goal. The Liverpool man is also known as a hard worker off the ball, and he should fit in well into Bielsa’s system.
