It was the unwanted transfer story which dominated the early weeks of last season for Leeds United, Wilfried Gnonto's decision to not play for the club as he tried to force a move away from Elland Road. Serie A clubs were circling for a loan deal, Everton wanted to get a permanent switch done for close to £25m but Leeds were standing firm on a £30m asking price and the hope the player would stay if that total was not reached.

That hope became reality once Gnonto changed his stance, re-joined the squad and the transfer window closed, with the Italian setting about trying to win over the Leeds faithful. A year later and we're in for a repeat of the Gnonto story once again, with a number of clubs being linked with the 20-year-old.

The 13-capped Italian international has big aspirations and knows a move away can aid his chances on the international stage. According to Italian publication CalcioMercato, Gnonto is keen on a switch to Serie A this summer in a big to put himself firmly back into contention for the national team having being dropped from Luciano Spalletti’s squad for the forthcoming European Championships and not even making the 30-man long list.
