Arsenal are among the clubs tracking Wilfried Gnonto’s situation following Leeds United’s relegation, according to reports.
Calciomercato report that a number of clubs are interested in Wilfried Gnonto this summer, with Arsenal and Manchester City following his situation closely, and major Serie A sides also watching on.
With Leeds United confirming their relegation from the Premier League, they’ll have plenty of decisions to make this summer.
Gnonto only joined Leeds in September, and he still has a contract with them until 2027. At 19, they may look to convince him that one year in the English second tier won’t be the worst thing for his career.
But if Gnonto agitates for a move, it seems various clubs are circling to take advantage and pick him up.
Lorenzo Lepore reports that Leeds United president Andrea Radrizzani is set to meet with Gnonto to discuss his future in the coming weeks.
Lepore also confirms that Arsenal are watching the teenager closely.
This isn’t the first time Arsenal have been linked with the youngster, with Gazzetta.it claiming in March that Gnonto’s progress had caught Arsenal’s eye.
At the time, Leeds weren’t keen to sell, and would only consider an offer in the region of €30-40m (£26-35m).
Despite his age, Wilfried Gnonto has already made quite an impression in senior football.
The forward has made 10 international appearances (four starts) for Italy already, scoring and assisting in a couple of games against Germany.
He also played 28 times for Leeds United this season, following his September move from FC Zurich, scoring four goals and assisting four.
