Everton have signed Jack Harrison on loan from Leeds United but the Toffees remain determined to sign another Leeds United winger Wilfried Gnonto. EFC manager Sean Dyche isn’t done with upgrading the attack as he continues to eye another winger to strengthen the attack.

Everton’s wing options now consist of Dwight McNeil, Alex Iwobi, Arnaut Danjuma, Harrison and Demarai Gray. Gray remains linked with a move away from the club as the 27 year old enters the final 12 months of his deal and has generated a lot of interest from Premier League sides like Fulham and Crystal Palace.

Gray is not in the regular plans of Dyche and an exit cannot be discarded. The 27 year old missed the Premier League clash against Fulham as he is still getting back to the desired level of fitness. In the event of Gray’s departure, EFC are already working on signing another winger as Gnonto remains a long term target for the Toffees.

Tottenham Hotspur could rival Everton for Wilfried Gnonto

EFC had been working in the background since April to sign the 19 year old but Leeds United are proving to be very stubborn in negotiations and have a strict stance of not selling the Italian attacker. Everton have made important bids that have been turned down as the Whites are reluctant to sell the 19 year old. Gnonto, on the other hand is set on moving to Everton. According to Fabrizio Romano, the winger wants an Everton move since July and has personal terms agreed for a five year deal.

The Merseysiders will need to speed up their pursuit and try to sign their top transfer target for the summer. Competition is increasing for the Italian as Tottenham Hotspur could rival Everton in the race for Gnonto, as per London World.

Spurs are looking to add an attacker to their ranks that can provide pace and deliver the goals. Tottenham are not shying away from spending big after the hefty pay cheque they received from the sale of Harry Kane. Everton and Leeds have been in contact but an amicable agreement has not been reached.

With a little over 14 days to go for the summer transfer window to end, EFC have work to do and need to use all their might to seal the deal for the 19 year old, who is their top transfer target in this transfer window.
