Leeds United and Rangers keen on Los Angeles FC midfielder Jose Cifuentes

Leeds United and Rangers are keeping tabs on Los Angeles FC midfielder Jose Cifuentes, reports MLS & USMNT Insider Tom Bogert.

Espanyol are also interested in the services of the Ecuador international and more clubs are likely to join the trio.

Cifuentes is out of contract in November and could be sold cheaply during the summer transfer window.

LAFC have started the new Major League Soccer season impressively, with five wins and two draws in their opening seven games.

They are the only unbeaten club across the Western and Eastern Conferences.

LAFC will fancy their chances of defending the Western Conference title and may want to hold on to Cifuentes until the end of the campaign.

However, Leeds and Rangers will look to move for the 24-year-old when the transfer window opens.

The Elland Road club may need to hold on to their Premier League status to have a chance of signing the MLS star.

They have conceded 11 goals in their last two games and are 16th in the table with seven games left.

Only two points separate them from the drop zone, and they must improve significantly to stay up.

Leeds could do with another solid midfielder after they were torn apart by Crystal Palace and Liverpool.

Cifuentes loves to dribble, tackle, pass, play through balls and constantly contributes defensively.

Rangers are unlikely to pip Celtic to the Scottish Premiership title as they are 12 points behind the defending champions.

There are six games left in the campaign, and they will have to settle for second place.

However, the Ibrox club will look to qualify for the group stages of the Champions League.

Rangers manager Michael Beale could do with quality additions this summer, and Cifuentes would be perfect for his midfield.
