Leeds United are reportedly looking to raid Steven Gerrard’s Champions League-chasing Rangers for two integral players. Rangers are on the eve of a third-round qualifying clash to qualify for the Champions League. Ryan Kent and Glen Kamara are both on Leeds radar, as per Give Me Sport.
The Whites have brought in Jack Harrison permanently and Junior Firpo from Barcelona, as well as goalkeeper Kristoffer Klaesson. But Marcelo Bielsa’s side are expected to try and sign a midfielder, and perhaps additional cover out wide. Helder Costa is a target for Valencia.
Kent and Kamara: Leeds eye Rangers duo, but how much will they cost?
Kent has been incredible for Rangers. Initially joining on loan in 2018 from Liverpool, he signed permanently in 2019. The winger has since had a hand in 55 goals during 129 games – but is in the last two years of his contract. The £18m-rated ace has been repeatedly linked with Leeds since promotion.
Kamara is another name loosely linked with Leeds in the past. A Finland international, the ball-playing midfielder is a crucial cog in Gerrard’s engine room. After an excellent season at Rangers, Kamara caught the eye for Finland at Euro 2020. Now, Leeds want both signed from Rangers.
It would take a hefty amount of money, though. With Kent rated at £18million – £11million more than Rangers paid Liverpool for him – and Kamara likely to be more than £10million, Leeds would have to spend the best part of £30million. Even more, if Rangers reach the group stages.
