According to information from TodoFichajes, Sevilla is in advanced talks with Leeds United to sign Wilfried Gnonto on loan until the end of the season. The central defender is a familiar face to Víctor Orta, who brought him to Elland Road in 2022 from FC Zurich for €4.5 million.
Gnonto, who is only 19 years old, has yet to make a breakthrough at Leeds. He has made only 10 appearances for the club, and he has only started one of those games. He is looking for a change of scenery to get more playing time.
Sevilla is a good fit for Gnonto. The club has a strong defense, but it could use some depth at the position. Gnonto is a talented defender with good potential. He is strong in the air, and he is good at reading the game.
The deal is reportedly close to being finalized. The only thing holding up the deal is the division of wages between Sevilla and Leeds. Sevilla is willing to pay a portion of Gnonto’s wages, but Leeds is reportedly asking for more.
If the deal is completed, it would be a good move for both Gnonto and Sevilla. Gnonto would get the playing time he needs to develop, and Sevilla would add a talented young defender to its squad.
