Leicester City are poised to cash in on underdog winger Demarai Gray in January.
According to 90minLeicester City believes this is his last chance to win back some money for Demarai Gray before he becomes a free agent in the summer.
The report further states that Tottenham and Everton are interested in signing the 24-year-old winger.
It will be interesting to see if any of the teams make a move to sign the winger from Leicester City next month.
The 24-year-old has yet to appear in the Premier League with Leicester City and has only played once in the League Cup for Brendan Rodgers’ team.
Demarai Gray needs to play soccer regularly in the first team to continue his development and fulfill his potential. Therefore, getting away from Leicester City would be ideal for this race.
It will be interesting to see where the next month ends.
Everton will likely be the best option for him because the Toffees could use some pace and style in the wide areas and Demarai Gray is likely to have more starting opportunities at Goodison Park.
Tottenham already have players like Steven Bergwijn and Lucas Moura at their disposal and Demarai Gray will have to fight for the starting position at the London club.
When the youngster burst into the Leicester City first team a few years ago, he was regarded as one of the best English prospects, but his development has stalled over the past year.
However, he is quite young and has a long time to rediscover his form and reach his potential.
If available for a reasonable fee in January, it could prove to be a smart long-term investment for Tottenham or Everton.
