Everton set to submit enquiry for Wilfried Gnonto

Everton will reportedly look to prise 20-year-old Italian international Wilfried Gnonto away from EFL Championship club Leeds United in the summer transfer window.

According to a report by Football Insider, Wilfried Gnonto is the subject of interest from Everton. The Toffees were also keen on signing the Italian international from Leeds United last summer. They are still eager to secure his services, with the Merseyside club ready to submit an enquiry to EFL Championship club Everton for the youngster.

The Wilfried Gnonto journey

Wilfried Gnonto has blown hot and cold since joining Leeds United from FC Zurich in September 2022. A native of Verbania, he began his youth career at Baveno before spending a couple of years with Suno. However, he spent most of his formative years with Inter Milan before moving abroad by joining FC Zurich in 2020.

The 20-year-old went from strength to strength at the Swiss outfit, which alerted several well-known clubs before Leeds United secured his services. Gnonto was inconsistent in his debut season at Elland Road and managed nine goals and three assists in 44 appearances across all competitions.

Despite Gnonto’s inconsistencies, he remains on the radar of several well-known clubs, including Everton. A few other Premier League outfits also contemplated a winter move for the Italian international before a deal failed to materialise. A summer transfer to Everton might be on the cards.

Premier League return on the horizon?

Everton considered signing Wilfried Gnonto from Leeds United last summer before a deal failed to materialise. The continued interest in the 20-year-old Italian international is understandable. While Jack Harrison will return to Goodison Park for another season after his loan stint in the 2023/24 season, he will soon line up alongside his former Leeds United teammate at the club.

The Toffees have shown interest in other wide attackers, with recent reports linking them with Yankuba Minteh. However, Gnonto is also a viable target, with Everton ready to approach EFL Championship club Leeds United over a possible move for the young attacker.

It will be interesting to see if the Whites entertain any offers for the 20-year-old Italian international in the summer transfer window after rebuffing suitors in the last 12 months. Everton will hope to belatedly land the young Leeds United attacker.
