English outfit Leeds Utd are not giving up in the hunt for Rangers target Ryan Kent.

The Yorkshire Post reports that Kent is one of two wingers that Marco Bielsa wants to sign for a tilt at the Championship crown next season.

And what’s more, Leeds plan to use the example of Harry Wilson to lure Kent to Elland Road.

Fellow Liverpool youngster Wilson was farmed out to Derby on-loan last season. The winger excelled in Frank Lampard’s side, with his 18 goals and six assists helping the Rams to a playoff final.

The impressive return could see 22-year-old Wilson work his way into Jurgen Klopp’s plans, and with Kent contracted at Anfield till 2022, the hope is he could do the same.

 

But Rangers are said to have made significant steps in the pursuit of the winger in the last few days. A deal for Kent is reportedly nearing completion [The Scottish Daily Mail (10/6, back page)].

From a Rangers point of view, Kent excelled in Scotland, earning the adulation of his peers and winning the SPFA Young Player of the Year Award.

The winger loves it in Glasgow, is adored by the fans and you get the impression, will be even better next season.

So whilst Leeds Utd tries to tempt Liverpool with visions of Harry Wilson 2.0, Rangers offer something a little different.

Somewhere Ryan Kent already feels at home.
