Leeds United winger Wilfried Gnonto remains a target for Everton despite the club confirming the signing of Jack Harrison on a loan deal in the early hours of Monday morning.
Aston Villa tried to hijack Everton’s deal for Harrison before realising he would be out for a further five weeks with injury.
Everton do not have an option to buy the winger included in their deal.
The 26-year-old joined Leeds from Manchester City back in 2021, and while Harrison will likely miss the beginning of the season with an injury, he will be a useful addition for Everton, having scored scoring 21 goals in the past three seasons for Leeds.

While Everton already have several wide players, including Neal Maupay, Arnaut Danjuma, Dwight McNeil and Demarai Gray, Gnonto is still a target for the Toffees, who are looking to add to their options in attack.
It comes as Sean Dyche’s side suffered a 1-0 loss to Fulham on Saturday, squandering several chances to score during the match.
Gnonto, meanwhile, has been a long-standing target for the Blues with Everton having already had a £15m bid for the winger rejected back in July.
Mail Sport also reported last week that Leeds could take disciplinary action against the 19-year-old after he tried to force through a move to the Merseyside club.

He refused to play in Leeds’ game against Birmingham City on Saturday and is facing a fine after not travelling with the squad.
Speaking on the situation, Daniel Farke threatened to bar wantaway players like the Italian forward amid concerns that they could upset the mood in his squad.
Gnonto has already featured for Leeds this season, playing 82 minutes during their 2-2 draw against Cardiff last week but failed to get on the scoresheet in that match.
He joined Leeds in 2022 in a £3.8m deal and went on to score twice in 24 league appearances for the Yorkshire club.
