A key transfer update has developed on Rangers wing wizard Ryan Kent ahead of the January transfer window…
Journalist Pete O’Rourke has claimed that the attacker will ‘definitely’ be looked at by teams in England. He thinks that Kent will be a target for Premier League sides during Gio van Bronckhorst’s first window in charge of the club.
“I think that Kent will definitely be a target for several clubs in the Premier League.”
This update will surely come as a frustrating one for Rangers fans as it indicates that there will be interest in the ex-Liverpool man in January. O’Rourke appears adamant that teams from the English top-flight will target him and that could lead to bids coming in for him next month, testing Ross Wilson’s resolve.
The supporters will be incredibly worried with the speculation over Kent’s future along with the prospect of him actually leaving as it places a question mark over his head. Any lacklustre performances could bring up concerns about his mentality, valid or not, and that is not a healthy situation for either party to be in.
Losing the 25-year-old in January would be a huge blow for van Bronckhorst and the club. Last season, Kent managed 12 goals and 11 assists in the Premiership and Europa League combined, showing off his ability to make an impact in the final third.
Earlier this year, his teammate Leon Balogun hailed him as a ‘wing wizard’ in training. He said:
“One who causes me real problems in training every now and then is Ryan Kent. He’s a wing wizard, my god, he’s a problem.
“There was this one goal, I think against Hamilton where he just turns the defender inside out, dropping the shoulder, dropping it again, and the guy doesn’t know where he is, so we have a few of them.”
This highlights how exciting he can be as a player when he takes on defenders to create openings for himself or others, which can get fans off their seats in anticipation of something happening when he gets the ball.
That is another reason why they will be scared by this update, as those joyous moments could be taken away from them if a Premier League club snatches him in January.
