Leeds United £6.3 Million-Rated Target Set To Become Available This Summer

Leeds United may be on the lookout for new wingers this summer if Crysencio Summerville and Wilfried Gnonto leave the club, and one former target has been made available, according to the latest reports.

Summerville is now the club’s most prized asset following the departure of Archie Gray to Premier League side Tottenham Hotspur. There are a number of clubs in the top-flight linked with the Dutchman, including Liverpool, Chelsea and Brighton and Hove Albion, while Fabrizio Romano recently revealed that his name cropped up during talks between Paris Saint-Germain and his representatives.

The Whites are reportedly looking for a fee of around £30 million for his services following an incredible season of performances for the club in which he scored 21 goals and recorded 10 assists in 49 matches in all competitions.

Meanwhile, Gnonto has also been the subject of transfer interest. It has been revealed recently that Brighton have held talks with Leeds United for the Italian forward, but clubs in Italy have been keeping tabs on his situation ever since the West Yorkshire club were relegated from the Premier League in 2023.

Should either attacker leave Elland Road before the transfer window closes at the end of August, Daniel Farke will need to sign replacements. One man who has been previously linked with a move to Leeds is former Bristol City and Barnsley loanee Ryan Kent.

Journalist Darren Witcoop has reported that the Englishman is “poised” to leave Turkish Super Lig giants Fenerbahce this summer, following the appointment of ex-Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho, and that Ipswich Town boss Kieran McKenna is a big admirer of the 27-year-old. However, perhaps Farke has been alerted to the possibility of Kent finally being available.

Writer’s View

Kent moved to Turkey from Scottish side Rangers last summer and signed a four-year deal with Fenerbahce, although he struggled in his first season at the club as he scored merely one goal and played just 18 times in all competitions.

While he had a dreadful debut campaign with his new side, the wide man still has three years remaining on his current contract and boasts a market value of between £3.8-6.3 million, as per FootballTransfers, so signing him could be costly for Leeds United.
