Leeds United are eyeing up a potentially crushing Rangers transfer raid, with the Premier League side keen on both Ryan Kent and Glen Kamara, according to GiveMeSport.

Leeds have been linked with Kent on and off for some time.

Last summer, Steven Gerrard confirmed that Rangers had rejected a bid from the Whites for the winger, which is believed to have been in the region of £10m [BBC Sport].

No further offers have landed since then, but it was recently claimed that he is one of their top three wide-playing transfer targets [Daily Record].

Meanwhile, Kamara was linked with a number of Premier League clubs back in April, with the Daily Mail crediting Leeds, Brighton, Burnley, Southampton and Watford with interest.

Now, GiveMeSport are claiming that the Yorkshire club could move for both Kent and Kamara before the end of the current window.

It’s asserted that no formal offers have been made as yet, but that a double swoop is being considered ahead of their push for European football.

This is concerning news for Rangers fans given how important both players were to the club’s success last season.

Kent provides a creative spark for the Gers from the left and returned excellent numbers, with 13 goals and 15 assists.

Kamara’s role is less about goal contributions and more about controlling things in midfield as well as providing brilliant cover for marauding full-back Borna Barisic, and his importance, particularly in Europe, can’t be overstated.

Supporters would begrudgingly accept one big player leaving the club this summer but if there’s to be any chance of two leaving and going to the same club, serious money would have to be offered up.

One fringe player does look to be on the brink of leaving Ibrox temporarily, with an English club reportedly close to a loan deal.
