Three Premier League clubs have been targeted to make a move for Demarai Gray when he becomes a free agent at the end of the season.
Gray is in the final six months of his contract with Leicester, where he has slipped down the pecking order. He has only played 18 minutes in the Premier League this season.
Given his inaction, he is unlikely to resume his stay at King Power Stadium. That means multiple clubs could battle for the former England Under-21 international..
Tottenham has been strongly linked to the winger, for example. However, they are not alone in their interest.
It recently emerged that Southampton is also interested, and this has now been supported by more sources.
There is also interest in Gray from abroad. According to France Soccer, Marseille are interested in the 24-year-old.
The Ligue 1 club is also on the verge of losing to a winger as a free agent. Florian Thauvin is nearing the end of his contract at the Stade Velodrome.
Therefore, they have reportedly lined up Gray as a possible replacement. But they will have to fight against the Portuguese Benfica for his signature.
Two more Prem clubs want Gray
Besides Tottenham, there are two more Premier League clubs that could be pitched for Gray.
An anonymous scout from the Premier League has said Le Phoceen (via Sports witness) that Everton and Southampton are also expected to make offers.
The scout said: “He is a very good player who maintains an excellent rating in England.
“He remains one of the best wingers of his generation, even if his contract situation at Leicester means that he is being ruled out by Rodgers and the coaches.
“He is very fast and adept at knocking out his opponent in the middle of the race, as well as goalkeepers with a tendency to spread his foot to find the opposite side of the net.
“Surely there will be competition, as I think good English clubs will move, such as Everton, Tottenham or Southampton.”
