Leeds Utd in £30m attacker links amid reported interest in Rangers winger

The same report also claims Leeds are reluctant to raise their offer for Rangers forward Ryan Kent as they assess their options in the transfer window.

Steven Gerrard admitted the Ibrox club have rejected a bid from Leeds for 23-year-old Kent with reports suggesting this could’ve reached up to £10m [Scottish Sun].

The Ibrox gaffer has previously claimed that Leeds are “nowhere near” Rangers’ valuation of the former Liverpool winger.

Having just been promoted to the English Premier League Leeds are expected to heavily invest in their squad as they look to retain their top tier status.

Given the club’s standing and the long wait for Premier League football for Leeds fans, the passionate Elland Road support is expecting Marcelo Bielsa to make a proper first of it next season.

A fee of £30m would represent a significant statement of intent from the Elland Road side, with Rodrigo, 29, also an established member of the Spanish national team.

On top of this Leeds are also being linked with a £20m move for SC Freiburg defender Robin Koch [the Sun], whilst Arsenal defender Rob Holding is also linked by the Daily Mail report.
