Leeds are set to table a £10m bid for Rangers winger Ryan Kent, according to reports in the UK.
The newly-promoted English Premier League outfit are looking to add to their squad for their first season back in the top flight for 16 years, and they have identified the 23-year-old as a key target.
Leeds boss Marcelo Bielsa is said to be a fan of Kent, having tried to sign the player from Liverpool on two occasions before he eventually joined the Gers on a permanent deal last summer. Most fans on Twitter don’t think the Scottish club should consider selling the player:
Easily our best player. Do not sell

They can 💦 off with £10m if its true. £15m minimum, not that i want to sell him.

He’s worth more than that, by far. Consistency is all that’s missing from his game. I’d be holding out for about £18m

yeah, i read the leeds manager tried to sign him twice before so it has merit, but 10m not enough and i dont want kent sold either, he does it in the big games

Would have to be more than 10 mill bearing in mind Liverpool have about a 20percent sell on clause.

It is believed that Kent is settled in Glasgow so it will be purely down to the club on whether they want to cash in on the player. The Light Blues would make a profit on the winger they signed for £6.5m last year but, selling him and then trying to replace him with the season having already begun, could jeopardise the club’s attempts to seal their first Premiership title in ten years.
