Reports are out claiming that Everton are moving to trump Leicester City for Birmingham City winger Demarai Gray.
The Sunday Mirror reported that the Toffees have watched the youngster extensively during the past 12 months and are ready to meet the £3.7million asking price for Birmingham City’s youngster.
Leicester appeared to have stolen a march on the competition and Gray could continue to live at home and commute to the East Midlands side – but Martinez is not out of the running.
Liverpool, who did have first call on his services, do not appear to be interested in taking up the option.
Arsenal are also said to be interested in the England U20 international.
