Nottingham Forest have reportedly made an offer for Leeds United winger Wilfried Gnonto.

According to AfricaFoot, the Reds are keen on the Italian-Ivorian winger who has attracted a great deal of interest this summer.

They claim an offer of 20 million Euros has already been submitted with the Reds hierarchy now awaiting a response. Gnonto had a fine season as the Whites missed out on a return to the Premier League having scored eight goals and registering three assists in 36 games.

The 20-year-old is under contract until June 2027 and Leeds are expected to offload some players from the Elland Road books this summer. Gnonto counts Inter Milan and FC Zurich as his previous clubs before he finally signed for Leeds in September 2022.

Leeds are said to want clarity from the player over where he sees his future as they push to avoid a repeat of last summer's mess around his refusal to play.

But according to Leeds Live it is understood that at this stage neither Gnonto or his representatives have told the club he is seeking an exit. Forest are busy plotting their moves for the market this summer and on Friday completed a switch for Marko Stamenic from Red Star.

However, he will spend next season on loan at Olympiacos. The Reds are also said to be in the hunt for a left-back and they are also tipped to sign a new goalkeeper.
