The 16-year-old, who joined the Tykes in 2019 after leaving Benfica, is a wing player who signed his first professional contract in 2022. After tallying 27 goals across all competitions, he was crowned the Academy Player of the Season for 2021–2022.

Wilfried Gnonto ‘Sad’ at Leeds United
Even though the summer transfer window ended more than two months ago, there are still rumours circulating that Wilfried Gnonto is considering a move away from Leeds United. The teenage Italian international is reportedly not pleased at Elland Road, according to Football Insider.
Gnonto has start just one of Leeds’ last four Championship games and played just one minute of action during the Whites’ win over Leicester City. The summer furore around Gnonto’s desire to leave the club has left him in an awkward position.
On the pitch, Crysencio Summerville is outperforming him, while Daniel James’ play is keeping Gnonto off the roster. In order to earn a spot in Italy’s Euro 24 squad should they qualify for next summer, the article claims that Gnonto wants to play frequently for the first team.
According to other sources, Lazio and the Premier League are both interested in the young player.
