Wolves are amongst the Premier League sides interested in signing Ryan Kent from Rangers this summer.
That’s according to 90min, who claim that the West Midlands outfit, as well as Leeds United, Everton and newly-promoted Fulham, are interested in signing the 25-year-old.
Having gone through the youth ranks at Liverpool, former Reds youth coach Steven Gerrard lured the winger to Glasgow when taking on the Rangers job and the Englishman has been a kingpin for the Scottish juggernaut ever since.
In 171 appearances for Rangers, Kent has scored 30 goals and registered 47 assists with three goals and 19 assists coming this season with Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s side reaching both the Europa League and Scottish Cup finals.
Although the goal tally is shy, the creativity that the £12.6m-rated winger provides is an asset that Wolves must gain this summer, with Bruno Lage’s men enduring a woeful campaign in front of goal.
In the Portuguese manager’s first season in England, the Wanderers have managed to score just 35 goals in 35 Premier League matches, with only Burnley and relegated sides, Watford and Norwich, scoring fewer.
The likes of Adama Traore, Francisco Trincao and Fabio Silva have all struggled to make an impact in the final third, particularly the latter who has failed to score a single goal this season despite being bought for £35.6m two summers ago.
Therefore, the West Midlands outfit must find a solution to improve in attack with Lage undoubtedly keen to push on from what’s been a solid first campaign in England.
Labelled as “unplayable” by journalist Andrew Dickson, Kent has been subject to Premier League interest for numerous transfer windows and it feels as though this summer could finally be the moment where the Englishman returns to his homeland to compete in the English top flight.
Also lauded as a “match-winner” who has “everything in his locker” and capable of providing “something special” by former teammate Kyle Lafferty, Wolves should certainly prioritise signing Kent this summer.
