LIVERPOOL are closing in on a deal for Leicester City winger Demarai Gray.
The flyer has become frustrated at the of lack opportunities handed his way by the former Premier League champions.
The 20-year-old’s situation has put Tottenham and the Merseyside pair of Everton and Liverpool on high alert.
However, the Mirror report, Liverpool are confident of landing the 20-year-old this summer.
The Foxes will struggle to stand in the Brummie’s way, after nine League starts this year, when many fans wanted to see more of Gray after poor start to season.
Gray made the short move from Birmingham to the east Midlands for £3.5million 18 months ago, and the Foxes should make a tidy profit on his potential summer exit.
Spurs have earmaked Gray as a possible alternative to Wilfried Zaha, who is in talks with Crystal palace about a new deal.
Everton are still without Yannick Bolasie who is recovering from a serious knee injury.
But Jurgen Klopp will trigger the £12million release clause to land the winger, as he looks to builds a squad able to compete for the league title and Champions League.
Gray picked up a Premier League winners’ medal for his contribution last season but has made most of his appearances this time out from the substitutes’ bench.
His departure could prove a massive headache for interim Foxes boss Craig Shakespeare, the club could lose Riyad Mahrez who agreed to stay another 12 months after wanting out last year.
