Leeds’ promotion bid is on a solid trajectory right now with their points tally in good shape to typically be in the top two, despite being eight adrift at the moment.
The January window is going to pose significant challenges to Daniel Farke in terms of incomings that could be sought, but also ensuring players don’t leave.
Willy Gnonto: What’s the latest?
Fabrizio Romano has shared in his Caught Offside Daily Briefing that Italian winger Willy Gnonto could be looking to leave the club in the new year when the window opens.
Who comes in to sign him remains to be seen, but an exit for him in less than two months’ time could be on the cards.
“Wilfried Gnonto – His departure from Leeds could be a possibility this January.
“He could leave but depends on the proposal and also negotiating with Leeds is never easy. Despite rumours, I have no confirmation of Tottenham links at this stage.”
Is Gnonto injured?
The international break over the last week saw Gnonto travel to represent Italy, but with the under-21s this time, as he scored twice and won a penalty in the 7-0 win over San Marino on Thursday.
However, there was a concern for the 20-year-old as he pulled up with what looked to be hamstring trouble, clutching the ball of his leg before coming off with injury:
Should Leeds sell Gnonto in January?
Gnonto could end up leaving in January, but he and the clubs that want him will find it even more difficult to take him from us.
Midway through a promotion race, we’re going to be asking for a bigger fee than we were flat-out ignoring in August when others wanted him.
Tottenham would be a good destination for him, given he wouldn’t go there under huge pressure, but I just don’t see them paying big money for him.
