Milan and Fiorentina Probe High-Priced Leeds United Ace

Milan and Fiorentina have inquired about Wilfried Gnonto, who could leave Leeds United following the relegation to the Championship. He has tallied 4 goals and 4 assists in his first season in England in 2021/2022. Monza tried to acquire him from Zurich last summer, but the Whites won the race with a €4.5M offer.

Per Calciomercato, his side is in no mood for discounts despite the situation. They have a set €20M price tag for the starlet. The 19-year-old, who’s a product of Inter’s youth academy, voiced his desire to return to the Nerazzurri in the past.

Milan and Fiorentina balked at the initial request for Gnonto and are unlikely to keep pursuing him if it doesn’t decrease. Juventus have also been rumored to have an interest in the attacker, as they might overhaul their frontline soon.

The winger, who gained visibility in the Peninsula thanks to an early call-up by Roberto Mancini, won’t star in the Nations League’s final four. Instead, he will participate in the U21 European Championship, where the qualification for the 2024 Olympic Games will be on the line. He’s one of the few players in the history of the Azzurri to have debuted for the national team before playing in Serie A.

Our Take on Gnonto

Relegations don’t seem to heavily affect price tags in England. Chances are he will find his way back to a top-flight outfit but probably not in Italy, even though he’d make sense for a few clubs thanks to his versatility.
