Everton now want to sign Jack Harrison from Leeds United, alongside Wilfried Gnonto.

The Toffees have been heavily linked with a move for Italian international Gnonto but are now also reportedly keen on his Leeds teammate.

The ‘unbelievable’ Harrison could be about to depart Elland Road following Leeds United’s relegation to the Championship, which Everton appear eager to exploit.

That is according to Football Transfers, who report that Gnonto and Harrison could link up once more at Goodison Park next season.

26-year-old Jack Harrison scored five goals and contributed seven assists in 36 Premier League games for Leeds United last season, which is not a bad return in a relegated side.

Had the former Manchester City man played for Everton last season, he would have contributed the second highest number of Premier League assists for the club, just one behind Alex Iwobi’s tally of eight and two ahead of Dwight McNeil’s five.

Wilfried Gnonto meanwhile is an exciting young talent at just 19-years-old and also fits the profile of the type of player Everton need to look at this summer.

The teenager scored twice in the Premier League last season in 24 games, contributing four assists and is a prospect that could excel at Goodison Park.

Indeed, the Toffees announced the signing of veteran star Ashley Young today in what could be a shrewd signing for Sean Dyche.

However, Young’s contribution at Goodison Park is likely to be short-term, whereas both Wilfried Gnonto and Jack Harrison could have longevity in an Everton shirt.

Adding goals and assists is a must for Everton this transfer window, and the Leeds United duo could provide that much-needed creativity for the Blues ahead of the 2023/24 Premier League season.
