Reports are out claiming that Liverpool have the inside running for Birmingham City winger Demarai Gray.
The Birmingham Mail reported that Premier League new boys Bournemouth have already made five bids, Liverpool have a first-option clause on the 18-year-old and others including Arsenal are said to be watching developments closely.
Brum boss Gary Rowett told the Mirror: “We’ve got one of the best young players in the country in Demarai.
“When you go to a club you look for game changers and generally they cost a lot of money. So to have one already here at 18 was massive for us.
“He can be one of the best. He’s not there yet – if I said he was he’d be the complete package and he’s not. He knows that and the good thing about him is that he’s level headed and anxious to learn.”
