Demarai Gray is not training with the Everton first team as he pushes for a move to Fulham.

The two clubs remain in talks over Gray’s exit after he agreed personal terms with the London outfit, The Athletic have reported.

The winger looks increasingly likely to leave Goodison Park this summer and has also attracted interest from Crystal Palace, Besiktas and the Saudi Pro League. However, it is believed that ‘electric‘ Gray is eager to stay in England and could now join Fulham.

After the Toffees already turned down one approach from Besiktas, the report claims that the two Premier League clubs remain far apart in their valuation of Gray but are continuing negotiations over a deal.

It is thought that Everton could demand around £15 million for Gray, who cost them only £1.7m two years ago.

Marco Silva’s side have already had a £4.5m offer for Chelsea’s Callum Hudson-Odoi rejected this summer and could look to make a second attempt if they are priced out of a move for Gray.

Who will replace Demarai Gray at Everton?

Everton look certain to sell Demarai Gray this summer, however reports have claimed they won’t part ways with the Jamaica international until they have brought in a replacement.

While they have already snapped up Arnaut Danjuma on loan, the Dutchman could feature heavily up front rather than on the wing.

The Toffees could now look to bring in Tete to replace Gray, with the Brazilian terminating his contract with Shakhtar Donetsk over the weekend.

The 23-year-old netted once while on loan with Leicester City last season, but bagged a further six goals and two assists during his time with Lyon in the first half of the campaign.

Everton also look increasingly likely to sign Sporting Lisbon’s Youssef Chermiti, who could free up some space for Danjuma if he is brought in to challenge Dominic Calvert-Lewin.
