Liverpool plan summer bid for Leicester attacker

Gray emerges as top Reds option

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp will reportedly lodge a move for Leicester City's Demarai Gray in the summer. The 20-year-old has been in-and-out of the Foxes lineup in what has been a dismal campaign by their recent standards.

Gray linked up with the Foxes from Birmingham City in the winter of 2016 and played a minor role en route to their maiden Premier League triumph.

Claudio Ranieri's side have since had a bad time in the top flight, and are now in a position where relegation looks a distinct possibility.

According to The Mail, Klopp is looking at the prospect of signing Gray at the end of the season after having seen his side falter in the title race whilst also exiting both the EFL Cup and the FA Cup.

Gray has been restricted to just six league starts in his Foxes career, but Klopp is nevertheless willing to take a risk on the winger as he bids to add a couple of wide players to his ranks during the off-season.
