Leeds boss Marcelo Bielsa preparing move for Rangers star Ryan Kent after trying to sign him from Liverpool

Leeds United are poised to make a move for Rangers winger Ryan Kent.

Having twice tried to sign the midfielder while he was at Liverpool, boss Marcelo Bielsa is hoping it will be third time lucky this summer.

Leeds returned to the Premier League after a 16-year absence when they clinched the Championship title in July.

And The Sun claim Kent is once again wanted by ‘El Loco’ as the Argentine seeks to keep the Whites in the top-flight following their lengthy absence.

Leeds are reportedly readying a £10million bid to Rangers this week in the hope of getting the 23-year-old into their squad as quickly as possible.

Although the report claims Kent is settled in Glasgow, he will await the Gers’ decision to see if they accept the offer.

Steven Gerrard has so far rejected offers from Lille for star striker Alfredo Morelos, with the stance from the club indicating they will not sell star names for anything less than for big money.

Kent has always wanted to be a success story in the south, but loan spells at Coventry, Barnsley and Bristol City failed to convince the Anfield hierarchy of his first-team potential.

So far, Leeds have been rebuffed in their efforts to sign Ben White from Brighton and Hove Albion as they look to boost their squad before Premier League football returns on September 12.
