Wilfried Gnonto is a wanted man following Leeds United’s relegation, and Juventus and Inter are among the sides that have tested the waters lately. The attacker would have stayed put if they avoided the drop, but he’s likely to depart now, La Gazzetta dello Sport informs.
The Bianconeri would be very keen on him if Federico Chiesa left. The Nerazzurri probed the terms of the deal too. He spent time at their youth academy but then joined Zurich when he was 16. They could go after him in the later stages of the window if they offloaded Joaquin Correa.
Rather than Juventus and Inter, whose interest is tied to chains of events that have yet to start, Everton and Freiburg moved with conviction to acquire Gnonto. The Whites want €15/20M for the prodigy after paying €4.5M for him last summer.
His agent Claudio Vigorelli spoke to Calciomercato.
“We are focused on the U-21 Euro at the moment, then we’ll talk with Leeds United and we’ll see. There’s no shortage of options. Considering his fantastic stint in the Premier League, our idea is to continue in such a direction.”
Our Take on Gnonto, Inter, and Juventus
He has huge potential, and his versatility makes him suitable for various schemes. He’d be a bargain given the circumstances, but the Serie A teams need more sense of urgency to snare him because he’ll predictably attract a host of suitors. If he’s just a late-summer flier for the two Derby d’Italia foes, then he’ll most likely head to a different team.
