Wilfried Gnonto could play in Serie A next season as he attracts the attention of top clubs in the Italian top flight and Juventus is one of them.
The black and whites have followed him for some time now as he makes an impression in the Premier League for Leeds.
Gnonto is one of Italy’s finest players abroad and continues to show he can deliver in a tough competition like the Premier League.
The Whites signed him for less than 5m euros and Juve is now looking to add him to their squad, with a report on Football Italia claiming the black and whites have already made contact with his entourage over the transfer.
Juve FC Says
Gnonto has been exciting to watch and he is one player often being talked about for delivering top performances in England.
If he joins us, we will have one more potent attacker in our squad and he might even perform better in Serie A than he is doing in the English top flight now.
It would be interesting to see how much Leeds would ask for and if we will pay to add him to the group in Turin.
They can’t afford him
Hilarious…. Gnonto is on a 5 year contract with four years left.
Juve cannot afford Gnonto as a club unless you sell Mckennie and another player for overpriced fees. It already looks as though we wont be signing Mckennie as he is not up to reliable prem standard as of yet. And you havent really got anyone else to sell who you would want to let go….. certainly not for a sizeable fee.
Juve like most Itaian clubs are bankrupt and simply cannot compete financially with even bottom tier prem clubs.
The reasons why Gnonto would want to join are numerous though… CL football via a poor league, warmer climate, him growing up in Italy etc which I can see being attractive to him.
Gnonto will be sold i’m sure…. but for a price Leeds define on our own terms. Anything else is a fantasy….. if Raphinha at 26 went for £50 million Gnonto a full Italy international making waves in the prem at 19 will go for a lot more. Juve simply cant afford it.
Sign him! But Allegri`s track record with young strikers is terrible. And he is best as a winger I think which also dont suit Allegri`s 3-5-2.
