In a recent report, LeedsLive revealed that Leeds United are big admirers of Rangers winger Ryan Kent. It is believed that the Whites are huge fans of the English wing wizard as they look to bolster their attack this summer.
Kent’s Growing Influence At The Ibrox Stadium
Kent is experiencing a productive campaign in Scottish football as he has produced a run of influential displays for Rangers in the final third. The 25-year-old has registered three goals and 17 assists in 38 matches for the Glaswegian outfit this season on all fronts.
The former Liverpool wide player has caught the eye by averaging 2.5 shots, 1.8 key passes and 2.1 dribbles per 90 minutes in the Scottish Premiership. He has even been tidy when interchanging possession with his teammates, as evidenced by his pass success rate of 86.5% in league football (stats via whoscored).
Should Leeds United Boss Jesse Marsch Move In For Kent?
Kent can use his electric pace to make some driving runs with the ball out on the flanks. He has got the vision to create a few excellent chances for his teammates up top. The Oldham-born talent can even generate a yard of space for himself to get some shots in on-target. He is an accurate passer of the ball as well which makes him a perfect fit for Leeds United boss Jesse Marsch‘s style of play at Elland Road.
We can expect Kent to add a lot of pace and creativity to the Whites‘ attack. Plus, he could serve as an upgrade over Daniel James who has struggled to be consistent with his performances at the Yorkshire club this season.
At 25, Kent is about to enter his prime, so the Whites could get the best out of the player if they can get him on board this summer. The English talent is primarily a left-sided winger but can even operate as a right-sided wide player or operate as a secondary striker down the middle. Leeds can definitely use someone of Kent’s skill set and versatility. Thus, Marsch should think about moving in for the Rangers star in the off-season.
