On-Loan Liverpool Winger Attracting Interest From a Trio of English Clubs
Liverpool youngster Ryan Kent is thought to be on the radar of three separate clubs, with the winger continuing to impress during his season long loan at Sky Bet Championship club Barnsley.
According to the Daily Mail, the 20-year-old is wanted by Bournemouth, Brighton & Hove Albion and Leeds United, with all three clubs potentially playing in the top flight with Liverpool next season.
This is the second time that Kent, who can also play up front, has left Merseyside to go on loan, after he spent the first half of last season with League One side Coventry City, whom he made 17 appearances and scored a single goal.
With the Tykes, Kent has been an invaluable member of their side, missing just two Championship games and starting a total of 36 times for the mid-table club. Yet, it may not be enough to earn him the right to stay at Liverpool.
The Reds will have been impressed with Kent's progression at Oakwell this season, but Jurgen Klopp cannot guarantee the versatile forward first team football and with just two years left on his contract, it might be time for them to cash in on him this summer.
While Barnsley will likely be priced out of a move for the England under 20 international, top flight Bournemouth, soon-to-be Premier League side Brighton & Hove Albion and play off contenders Leeds United are all vying for his signature.
