The Lowdown: Gnonto links
According to Fabrizio Romano, Leeds have been following the forward for a ‘long time’, and it looks as if they have stepped up their interest in the teenager.
The Latest: Personal terms breakthrough
According to Football Insider in a story shared in the last 24 hours, Leeds ‘are closing in on a deal for the Italian forward after further negotiations’.
They claimed on Sunday morning that an agreement has been reached with Gnonto and his representatives, with Victor Orta and Andrea Radrizzani’s attention now turning to settling on a transfer fee.
The Verdict: Matter of time?
Jesse Marsch has described Gnonto as a ‘long-term project’ and wasn’t sure if a transfer would be finalised this summer.
However, it looks as if a late summer move is gathering pace, with the two clubs currently £3m apart in valuation.
Gnonto at Elland Road?
Yes, get him in!
No, look elsewhere!
Leeds have reportedly offered £4m whereas Zurich want £7m, so you’d like to think that all parties involved will want to strike a deal, with the player seemingly agreeing on personal terms in Yorkshire.
Di Marzio‘s previous August 25 date for a transfer to go through could well prove accurate, which could then give the Whites time to go after a more experienced forward in the final days of the transfer window.
