Demarai Gray is reportedly considering a move away from Everton after falling down the pecking order.

The winger had established himself as a regular for the Toffees in the early stages of the season, netting a memorable equaliser against Nottingham Forest and Manchester City. However, Gray has found his opportunities limited since Sean Dyche’s arrival in January.

The Daily Mail have claimed that he could be open to an exit as he looks to pick up regular game time.

The 26-year-old wants to establish where he stands at the club before making a decision on his future.

Gray is on a list of targets for Fulham ahead of their second successive campaign in the top flight, according to Sky Sports.

The forward could bolster the Cottagers’ attack, with Fabrizio Romano reporting that Willian is yet to sign a new contract. Meanwhile, Manor Solomon and Daniel James have returned to their parent clubs.

Gray’s contract is set to expire next summer but the Toffees have the option of extending it by a further year.

Everton only paid £1.7 million for the attacker two years ago and could look to make a profit this summer.

Everton can’t afford to weaken their attack

Everton desperately need rid of their dead wood. However, parting ways with Gray seems like another poor move.

Gray won’t turn the Toffees’ fortunes around, yet he looked to be the spark of life that they needed on a number of occasions last season.

It may not be up to them if he demands to leave, in which case Everton should look to bring in a replacement before offloading.

Everton could allow Ellis Simms to leave with the Northern Echo claiming that Sunderland remain eager to bring him back to Wearside.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Neal Maupay could be left as their only two options up top, with the pair scoring three goals in the Premier League last time out.

The trio netted four goals in the Premier League between them last term – the same as Gray bagged on his own.
