Leeds weigh up move for "frightening" winger

Ryan Kent in action for Rangers

Blink and you'll miss something. That's been the story of Leeds United's return to the Premier League.

They've signed a plethora of new players, broken their transfer record and also been involved in some of the most exciting games of the new term to date.

Leeds have played out two 4-3 matches, winning one and losing the other, while a hotly-contested Yorkshire derby with Sheffield United saw the Whites come out on top.

There have been few opportunities to breathe for Marcelo Bielsa and his staff.

Victor Orta has been remarkably busy in the transfer market while the players have been worked hard on the training pitch.

We all know about Bielsa's training methods so we can say with a firm belief that there won't have been much rest for anyone this summer. 

They're now beginning to reap the rewards too. They have six points from three games and look ready to take on the very best the Premier League has to offer.

Their squad could get even better too. That's because Leeds are intent on signing a new winger. 

Dan James has been one of the players doing the rounds in the newspapers over the last week or so, while a new name on the block is Gyrano Kerk at FC Utrecht. 

However, with a move for the former now stalling, Leeds are weighing up a move for someone else.

Coincidentally, Ryan Kent is now back on their radar.

That's according to a report from The Sun who claim Kent will be the man Bielsa and Orta look to target if James doesn't end up leaving Manchester United. 

Kent has been linked regularly with a move to Elland Road this summer and a bid was even rejected with Steven Gerrard wanting to keep him at Rangers.

GIVEMESPORT'S Matt Dawson says...

Back in the summer of 2019, it appeared as though Leeds had a choice. It involved Kent once again.

Either move for Eddie Nketiah on loan or bring the former Liverpool winger to Yorkshire.

However, after Jack Harrison's bright start to the campaign, they opted for a new striker, rather than a winger.

Leeds won't regret not signing him a year ago because they still achieved promotion. That being said, they cannot miss out on the 23-year-old again.

Kent has scored five goals and created five assists in just ten outings this term, a season where teammate Scott Arfield has claimed the attacker "is on fire."

Arfield has been a keen admirer of the Englishman, describing his qualities this season.

He said: "When he plays well he takes us to another level. It is a pleasure to play with him as he is making the right decisions at the right times. His pace is frightening and he is now adding goals to his games as well."

Fine praise indeed. Leeds must do all they can to finally bring Kent to the club.
