Bologna and Udinese join race to sign Ryan Kent after Rangers exit development

Serie A clubs Bologna and Udinese have joined the race to sign Rangers winger Ryan Kent this summer, according to TuttoMercatoWeb.

The attacker will leave Ibrox at the end of this season following the expiration of his contract, having joined the Gers back in 2018.

Turkish outfit Fenerbahce have reportedly made an offer for his services, but Italian duo Bologna and Udinese are also keen on his signature.

“A free opportunity for many clubs, given that the former Liverpool player will be officially released from July 1st,” according to TuttoMercatoWeb.

“Fenerbahce has already presented an offer to its representatives and the player is also liked by Udinese and Bologna, but Everton have entered in the last few hours.”

Disappointing end for Kent

It really has been a disappointing end for Kent at Rangers, with the attacker only able to watch on from the sidelines in his final days at the club given his current injury.

It’s a real shame because he has been one of his side’s key players in recent times, with supporters often on the edge of their seats when Kent has the ball at his feet.

He will definitely be missed at Ibrox, with the former Liverpool man helping create several superb memories for fans of the club over the years.

Despite not playing against Hearts on Wednesday (24 May), the Gers faithful gave their star attacker a fitting send-off, with Kent leaving with his head held high.

Wherever he goes next, the winger will no doubt make an impact, with Kent still able to terrify defenders with his pace and trickery, with the attacker perhaps just needing a certain manager to really get the best out of him.
