Everton lead race to sign Leeds United forward Wilfried Gnonto as dream scenario emerges at Inter Milan

Everton lead the race to sign Leeds United forward Wilfried Gnonto but Serie A giants Inter Milan are dreaming of a homecoming return for the youngster, according to journalist Alfredo Pedulla.

The Toffees have identified the Italy international as a target for the summer window following Leeds’ relegation to the Championship, with a potential multi-million-pound deal on the cards to get him out of Elland Road.

Everton lead race to sign 'Special' attacker as dream scenario emerges at Euro club - report

talkSPORT journalist Alex Crook reported on 6 July that Everton are looking to take advantage of Leeds United’s position in the Championship by sealing a “bargain” cut-price transfer this summer, however, the Toffees aren’t the only team in the race to sign him.

According to Italian journalist Pedulla (6 July), Inter Milan and Aston Villa are also in the race with the Serie A giants dreaming of bringing the Italian wonderkid back to where he started out at the San Siro.

However, the Italian giants are focused on the purchase of Romelu Lukaku and the sale of Andre Onana to Manchester United, but Gnonto has other requests with Everton said to be leading the race.

Got to move quick

The 19-year-old has indeed enjoyed a stellar first season in England, contributing four goals and four assists in 23 appearances in all competitions but more crucially possesses amazing trickery, 1v1 dribbling, pace and technical skill to unlock even the best defences in the Premier League.Everton

With Everton desperately short on attacking options right now, and the positions of Gnonto’s other suitors, the Toffees simply have to move fast to secure his signature. The longer this saga drags on, the longer the chances of signing him fade away.

He has reportedly attracted interest from the likes of Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester City in the past too and those sorts of top clubs along with Inter will certainly see him as an exciting opportunity in the market, with former Leeds caretaker manager Michael Skabala labelling him “special”.

However, according to TalkSport, Gnonto wants a Premier League move which may hand Everton the encouragement they need to get this brilliant signing done. They can’t afford to waste time, though.
