Leeds United will reportedly make a new offer for FC Zurich forward Wilfried Gnonto in the coming days.
The Lowdown: Gnonto rumours
Sky Sports journalist Gianluca Di Marzio was one of the first to break the rumours regarding Gnonto, claiming at the weekend that Leeds were looking to wrap up a deal by August 25.
Rumours have gathered pace since, with reports suggesting that an agreement on personal terms with the player is ‘essentially there’.
The Latest: Transfer update
They claimed that the Whites will make a ‘new assault’ for the youngster in the coming days after the club’s opening proposal failed to meet Zurich’s demands.
The Verdict: Fingers crossed
It appears as if Gnonto is a firm target between now and the September 1 deadline, so hopefully, the club can strike an agreement with Zurich relatively soon.
Gnonto at Elland Road?
Yes, get him in!
No, look elsewhere!
Leeds appear in desperate need of a new forward and Gnonto could be the perfect third option at the club alongside Patrick Bamford and Joe Gelhardt, and they could still be getting a bargain even if they have to pay the mooted €10m.
