Next season he could be playing alongside Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Marco Reus and Ousmane Dembele.

The 21-year-old winger held talks with Leicester amidst interest from Dortmund, Spurs and Everton, according to Sky Sports News.

Gray has struggled to establish himself as a first team player at Leicester since signing from Birmingham City.

He played 12 times during the second half of their title winning season and made another 30 appearances last season, although 21 of those came off the bench.

Despite being given limited chances to impress Gray has tended to make an impact, such as when he came off the bench to score his only Premier League goal last season, against Man United.

Dortmund have no shortage of options when it comes to wingers.

Dembele has developed into one of Europe’s most dangerous widemen, while Emre Mor, Mario Gotze, Raphael Guerreiro, Andre Schurrle and Christian Pulisic are all options out wide.

There’s also the return of Reus, who’s currently out injured. So where is Gray fitting in?
