Tottenham are monitoring the situation of Leicester attacker Demarai Gray, according to a report.
The Daily Mail claim that Spurs are eyeing a move for the 20-year-old alongside Premier League rivals Everton and Liverpool.
It is understood that the England Under-21 international has grown frustrated of his opportunities with the Foxes this campaign and will ponder his future in the summer.
The report details that Leicester are determined to keep hold of the winger that has three years left on his deal, but a rumoured £22million release clause could be a stumbling block, despite the club denying the buy-out exists.
Gray has endured a frustrating season at the King Power Stadium and has been unable to land a permanent starting role, despite become a hit with the club’s supporters due to his speed and trickery.
The left winger has made 37 appearances across all competitions and completed 90 minutes on just five occasions.
He has been unable to force his way ahead of Riyad Mahrez and Marc Albrighton, but is still a highly rated youngster.
Football Insider verdict:
Spurs should seriously consider a move for the Leicester ace, who has the potential to become a great player. Gray has shown real glimpses of his quality during his game time with the Foxes and would only improve under the guidance of Mauricio Pochettino. The north London club have a number of quality English players in their squad and Gray could become the latest addition. Additionally, Spurs need to have a stronger squad at their disposal if they want to compete both domestically and in Europe next season. Gray is certainly not the finished article yet, but snapping the 20-year-old up could turn out to be a very smart piece of business.
