Everton are now interested in Leeds United forward Willy Gnonto as the Blues look to strengthen their attacking options this summer.
The ‘special’ forward could be available following Leeds United’s relegation from the Premier League last season and the 19-year-old is attracting interest from Everton.
That is according to the Daily Mail, who report that the Yorkshire club could face a player exodus this summer, with Everton just one of the teams looking to gain from the situation.
Gnonto is an exciting young talent and could be the type of signing to get fans off their seats as Sean Dyche looks to add creativity to his squad.
Indeed, the Italian international was described as ‘very unusual’ by Gary Neville after Leeds United’s 2-1 defeat to Aston Villa back in January.

“Sometimes you see potential and talent but watching him so closely, his understanding of where to be, his choice of pass, when to run with it, his awareness of teammates, really good honestly.”
Gnonto would excite at Everton, if the price is right
What kind of price Leeds would demand for Gnonto remains to be seen, but he is a signing that could get Everton fans on their feet at Goodison Park next season.
The Daily Mail report also claims that the Toffees are interested in Gnonto’s Leeds United teammate Crysencio Summerville, another young attacking player.
The Dutch winger scored an 89th minute winner for Leeds over Liverpool last season, and should he sign at Goodison Park, Everton fans would be delighted to see him replicate his goal while wearing blue.
Sean Dyche will no doubt be in the market for creativity this summer, and the Blues could well land two exciting young talents at the expense of Leeds United.
