Everton attacker Demarai Gray has now reportedly agreed personal terms with Marco Silva’s Fulham side as his Goodison departure edges closer.

Indeed, the ‘electric’ 27-year-old did not train at Finch Farm for ‘three consecutive days‘, yet there has been no official agreement made between the two clubs.

That is according to journalist Fabrizio Romano who took to Twitter to report that the Jamaican international wants to move to Craven Cottage.

Romano tweeted: “Demarai Gray didn’t train with Everton for three consecutive days – he only wants to join Fulham.

Personal terms agreed but still waiting on the agreement between clubs. He only wants Fulham move as priority.”

Demarai Gray getting his move to Fulham is good business by Everton, provided he is replaced

Demarai Gray has been linked with a number of clubs throughout the summer, including Saudi Pro League side Al-Hilal, while Crystal Palace reportedly saw him as a potential replacement for Wilfred Zaha, who recently signed for Turkish side Galatasaray as a free agent.

However, it seems now that the Everton attacker will make the switch to Fulham, provided Marco Silva’s side can agree a fee with the Toffees.

Gray has spent two years at Goodison Park after his £1.7m move from Bayer Leverkusen but has fallen down the attacking pecking order at Everton since Sean Dyche’s appointment, despite the threadbare options.

Indeed, the 27-year-old was named on the bench for five of the last 18 games of last season as the Blues sought to secure their Premier League status, finally doing so on the last day of the campaign.

The Everton boss did not seem to fancy Gray and it wouldn’t be the worst piece of business by the club to make what will likely be a healthy profit on the out-of-favour forward.

Gray lacks the work ethic that Sean Dyche looks to instil in his side, and so it is perhaps no real surprise that the Everton boss is moving him on this summer.

Provided Everton reinvest the money wisely, it could be good business for the Blues.
