Leeds will have to pay a £7 million price to recruit a ‘special’ player in January, according to reports, and Gary McAllister is a big fan.

Ryan Kent is back on Leeds United’s radar ahead of the January transfer window, with the winger eager to leave new club Fenerbahce – and the Whites will have to pay £7 million to bring him in.

Ryan Kent

Kent has struggled since joining Fenerbahce this summer. He joined the Turkish club following five years at Rangers, where he served as Steven Gerrard’s assistant under Leeds veteran Gary McAllister.

McAllister said he deserved an England call-up when he was at his peak. Owen Hargreaves, who played for Rangers in the Europa League and helped them reach the final in 2021, described Kent as “special,” comparing him to Franck Ribery.

However, after joining Fener in the summer, he has only made seven starts in 14 games. Only one goal and two assists. According to TeamTalk, Leeds, Rangers, and Bournemouth are all interested in Kent.

According to the Turkish website Miliyet, Paul Heckingbottom wants to reunite with Kent at Sheffield United after working with him at Barnsley. Fenerbahce, according to Fanatik, values Kent at £7 million.

Fenerbahce want £7 million for Ryan Kent, a new Leeds United target.

As things are, Leeds does not require Kent. Leeds have five wingers – Dan James and Cree Summerville are on fire, while Willy Gnonto, Jaidon Anthony, and Ian Poveda are vying for a starting spot.

However, Gnonto is being linked with a move away, Anthony is only on loan, and Poveda may feel the need for a loan exit in January, given his lack of playing time. In January, we may need to sign a winger.

Kent has undoubtedly demonstrated Premier League quality, and at £7 million, he is still on the cheap side heading into the January transfer window. But Leeds should only go for him if they sell players like Gnonto.
