Multiple clubs join chase for winger destined to sign for Tottenham

Rob McCarthy

Tottenham could reportedly face competition from a number of clubs in the Premier League and Europe to sign Leicester winger Demarai Gray.

The 24-year-old, whose Foxes contract runs out at the end of the season, was linked with a move to Spurs over the summer but ended up remaining at the King Power.

However, the attacker has failed to make a single Premier League appearance for Leicester this season. That has heightened rumours of an imminent exit.

Indeed, Duncan Castles revealed in the Transfer Window Podcast last month that Leicester were expecting the player to head to north London.

Brendan Rodgers even admitted earlier this month that he expects Gray to move on in the near future.

However, it would now appear that Spurs have a battle on their hands to land the player.


The Daily Mirror claims that Newcastle and West Brom also keen on snapping him up, along with clubs in Italy and Germany.

The report reveals that Gray is not particularly keen on a move to the Hawthorns, given the Baggies’ relegation struggles.

That means Tottenham remain firm favourites to bolster their wide ranks.

But Gray will have to battle the likes of Lucas Moura and Gareth Bale just for a bench spot.

Spurs target offered new Brentford deal

Championship promotion-hopefuls Brentford are in talks with striking starlet Marcus Forss about a new long-term contract, according to TEAMtalk sources.

Borussia Dortmund and Tottenham Hotspur are amongst the clubs who have been monitoring the 21-year-old, who has claimed five goals already this term despite starting just two games.

Forss, who was called up by Finland for the first time this season, began his career in England with West Bromwich Albion before being snapped up by Brentford in 2018.

Forss has seen his game time severely limited by the presence of summer signing Ivan Toney, but despite them being unable to offer the Finnish international first-team football this season, they believe he can have a huge future at the club.

The Finn is contracted to Brentford until 2023, but they are ready to reward his recent progress and show him how highly regarded he is at the Community Stadium. Read more…
