Liverpool could sell 22-year-old wing wizard to Championship club

Liverpool winger Ryan Kent is on Leeds United’s radar with the speculation linking the Championship club with a move in the summer transfer window.

The 22-year-old winger, who spent the 2018-19 year on loan at Rangers is open to a switch to Elland Road this transfer window.

The Gers are interested in bringing the former England Under-20 international back to Ibrox, while Aston Villa – who will play in the Premier League next year after clinching promotion from the second tier via the playoffs – want him.

Ryan Kent has been on the books of the Reds since 2003, but the forward has yet to break into the first team.

The attacker has had multuple loan spells at Coventry City, SC Freiburg, Barnsley, Bristol City and Rangers.

Liverpool will consider selling the winger this window if the right offer arrives and meanwhile the Reds have opted against a move for Werder Bremen forward Max Kruse.

The Premier League giants had been linked with a swoop for the 31-year-old forward, who netted 12 times and registered 14 assists in 36 matches for Bremen during the 2018-19 season.

Max Kruse will be leaving his club on a free transfer, which has led to a host of speculation surrounding the striker’s future.

However Jurgen Klopp’s team will not be making a move for the Bundesliga ace due to Divock Origi’s form in the latter stages of last campaign and the presence of Rhian Brewster at Anfield.

The Merseyside giants, though, continue to be strongly linked with a move for Sporting Lisbon attacker Bruno Fernandes.
