Tottenham Hotspur are interested in signing Demarai Gray from Leicester City in the summer transfer window, according to The Times.
Gray is in the final year of his contract at Leicester, and that has attracted the interest of Spurs, who will have limited funds to spend this summer, according to the report.
Gray has been on the books of Leicester since January 2016 when he joined from Birmingham City for a transfer fee reported by The Guardian to be worth £3.75 million.
Much was expected of the 24-year-old when he arrived at the King Power Stadium, but the winger has failed to live up to expectations and is not guaranteed a place in the starting lineup.
According to WhoScored, the former England Under-21 international winger has made three starts and 16 substitute appearances in the Premier League for the Foxes this season, scoring two goals and providing three assists in the process.
During the 2018-19 campaign, the 24-year-old made 23 starts and 11 substitute appearances in the league for the Foxes, scoring four goals and providing one assist in the process, according to WhoScored.
Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers described Gray as a player who has “got wonderful talent” and who “can dribble, he can do everything”, as quoted in The Leicester Mercury in June 2020.
