Rangers boss Giovanni van Bronckhorst has been dealt a crushing blow over the future of Ibrox winger Ryan Kent…
Transfer insider Dean Jones has claimed that the attacker wants to secure a move south of the border with teams from England eyeing him up.
The Gers are set to offer him fresh terms in an attempt to keep him at the club and Jones believes that it will be a futile effort.
He told GIVEMESPORT: “I’m told Ryan Kent will still look to leave this summer as he wants to play in the Premier League. Rangers are ready to make him a new contract offer, but it sounds like he fancies a move, and he knows clubs like Leeds and Everton are keen”
This claim will surely leave the Ibrox faithful gutted as losing Kent would be a huge blow to the club heading into the 2022/23 campaign.
It is a difficult situation for Ross Wilson to be in as the player’s contract expires in the summer of 2023. This means that the upcoming window is the best chance to cash in on him before his value plummets.
He will be available to foreign teams on a pre-contract in January 2023 and will become a free agent later that year, which means that this summer could be the perfect time to sell Kent if he is unwilling to put pen to paper on a new deal.
The financial benefits of a transfer will not take away from the disappointment of a departure for Kent. He has produced three goals and 19 assists in all competitions this season, including 11 assists in 24 outings in the Premiership.
These statistics show that he has been a difference-maker for Gio van Bronkhorst in the final third. He has regularly contributed to goals by showcasing his creativity from out wide, providing excellent crosses and using his trickery to win penalties off the opposition.
This is why the supporters will be deflated by the prospect of Kent wanting to leave the club and will surely be frustrated by his decision.
Although, the fans may forgive the attacker for seeking a transfer if he ends his Gers career on a high by scoring the winner against Frankfurt in Sevilla. Winning a major European final would be some way to bow out at Ibrox and give him enough goodwill for the move to avoid major criticism from the fanbase.
