LEEDS UNITED star Wilfried Gnonto is in line for an immediate Premier League return.
The Italian striker is a target of one of Leeds’ relegation rivals from last season.
Accordingly Gianluca DiMarzioEverton are keen to sign Gnonto this summer.
The Toffees narrowly avoided relegation to the Championship last season at the expense of Leeds.
Their last-day win over Bournemouth forced Leeds, who had beaten Tottenham Hotspur, to last.
Everton are now interested in signing one of the best players from their former relegation rivals.
Gnonto scored four goals and provided four assists for Leeds after joining from FC Zurich last summer.
His performance with the relegated Whites during his first season in England has seen him attract the interest of several clubs including Arsenal.
However, any move will likely have to wait as Gnonto is currently on international duty with Italy’s Under-21 squad.
He came on as a second-half substitute in his country’s opening game at the European Championships on Thursday, a 2-1 defeat by France.

Meanwhile, Aston Villa are reportedly considering a move from midfielder Tyler Adams.
