Ryan Kent seeks permanent but Liverpool hold out for £12 million

Ryan Kent seeks permanent but Liverpool hold out for £12 million Scotland’s Young Player of the Year is in demand once more this summer after proving to all the critics that he has what it takes to play at the top level of the game. This is after 22-year-old Kent scored six goals in 43 appearances this season under Gerrard whilst playing on the wing for Rangers in the SPL, reports Goal.com. Leeds United of the Championship in England have made a formal approach for the exciting forward but would only be able to take the player on-loan, but with both Liverpool and Kent wanting to make the move a permanent one for around £12 million, the Yorkshire club may have been priced out.

Leeds have depth at winger , and with the emergence of Pawel Cibicki Leeds already have a 21-year old winger with a bright future ahead of him. Kent doesn’t fill a need for the club, and as a rule, the “red tops” have almost always been wrong when it comes to rumours about incoming Leeds transfers.

Liverpool winger Ryan Kent is reportedly open to making the move to Leeds United this summer, according to Leeds Live, cited by the Bristol Post.

The 22-year-old looks set to leave Anfield once again this summer, with Leeds and Scottish giants Rangers interested in Kent’s services for the upcoming campaign.

The report states that Kent, who excelled under Steven Gerrard at Ibrox last year, is open to a new challenge next season.

Newly promoted Aston Villa are also keen on the wide man, however, Dean Smith’s side would more than likely explore the possibility of signing Kent on a permanent basis.

However, with Kent having three years left on his current Reds deal, a loan stint looks the most likely option for the winger.

Marcelo Bielsa is looking to bolster his wide options for the Whites this summer ahead of the new campaign, so Kent could be a key man at Elland Road if he made the move to Yorkshire.

Liverpool contact Pepe's agent ahead of summer move.
Liverpool have reportedly made contact with Nicolas Pepe’s agent ahead of a summer move. The Reds have been heavily linked with a move for the wide man, who has enjoyed a stellar campaign in Ligue 1 with Lille. The 24-year-old joined Lille back in 2017 for just €10m under now Leeds United boss Marcelo Bielsa and has been a vital member of the side ever since. Pepe scored 22 times in Ligue 1 this season, with Paris Saint-Germain star Kylian Mbappe the only player to score more than the Ivory Coast international in France’s top division.
