Everton forward Demarai Gray could now leave the Blues this summer with four clubs interested in his signature.

The ‘unbelievable’ player has attracted the attention of three Premier League clubs as well as Saudi Arabian side Al-Hilal, who plan on sending a delegation to London to discuss a possible transfer.

That is according to Sky Sports, who reveal that the Jamaica international, who has just one year left on his current contract, could leave Goodison Park this summer.

Indeed, Sky Sports states: “Let’s just bring you some breaking transfer news as Saudi Arabian clubs target yet more Premier League players.

We’re told that Al-Hilal want to sign the Everton forward Demarai Gray. A delegation from the club is expected in London next week for negotiations.”

They continued: “Gray made 36 appearances in all competitions last season with six goals for Everton. There are three Premier League clubs also interested in Gray who’s got a year left on his current contract after signing from Bayer Leverkusen in 2021.”

Demarai Gray brought important goals to Goodison, but is replaceable

Everton signed Gray for £1.7m from German side Bayer Leverkusen back in 2021 and could potentially make a decent profit on the 26-year-old this summer.

Indeed, Sean Dyche did not seem to favour Gray last season, dropping him to the bench in five of the 18 games following his January appointment.

Everton’s previous boss Frank Lampard however named Gray in his starting XI for every Premier League game prior to his January dismissal.

With this in mind, Gray could be a player Everton look to cash in on this summer as Sean Dyche looks to rebuild the club’s squad, with an emphasis on his attacking options.

With four Premier League goals, and six in all competitions, Gray would need replacing, but if Dyche doesn’t fancy him, then making a profit to reinvest would be the club’s best option this summer.
