ASTON VILLA continue to lead the way in the pursuit of Ryan Kent – but Manchester United are now hot on their heels.
Sky Bet price the Old Trafford side as 6/1 second favourites to sign the Rangers winger.
Kent was a key factor in the Light Blues’ run to the Europa League final last season.
He’s previously been linked with Premier League moves, most noticeably when Leeds were heavily linked with a switch last summer.
Kent joined Rangers from Liverpool for just over £7million in 2019 and was a big part of Gers stopping Celtic winning 10-in-a-row under Steven Gerrard.
That relationship with Gerrard stemmed from playing under the Reds legend in the Anfield academy.
And another reunion is the current favourite with Sky Bet, as Aston Villa lead the way at 2/1 in the market.
Ryan Kent next club
Sky Bet odds
- Aston Villa 2/1
- Manchester Utd 6/1
- Wolves 12/1
- Leeds 14/1
- Leicester City 16/1
- Borussia Dortmund 20/1
- Everton 20/1
- Roma 20/1
Gerrard has already splashed out on Philippe Coutinho, Robin Olsen and Diego Carlos in preparation for next season.
While Man Utd’s spending is yet to get under way under new boss Erik Ten Hag.
He reportedly has his eyes on bringing winger Antony with him to Old Trafford as his summer rebuild begins.
United weren’t included in the market for Kent last week and have been backed into second favourites to land the English winger.
Kent’s contract runs out next season and Rangers could look to land a decent fee for him this summer instead of losing him for free next year.
Wolves and Leeds come next at 12/1 and 14/1, with Leeds potentially looking to rekindle that interest.
Raphinha is linked with a move away and Kent could be eyed as a replacement.
Leicester City are given 16/1 odds, while Dortmund are amongst clubs on 20/1.
They witnessed Kent’s ability first-hand when he tore their defensive to shreds to help Gers beat them over two legs in the Europa League last year.
