Burnley's Gray In Everton Links

Burnley's Gray In Everton Links

Ronald Koeman should be busy during the summer as Everton's boss will be looking to put together a squad capable of challenging for the top-four.

The boss will already have names in his mind of players who wouldn't have a Goodison Park future under him along with others he'll be hopeful of bringing to Merseyside.

Retaining Romelu Lukaku for (at least) another season could rank alongside a signing in many ways? But, as potential options are put in place to position the Belgian should he leave, Everton have been linked with Burnley's Andre Gray, a teammate of Michael Keane, often a player mentioned in connection with the Toffees.

Everton aren't alone in having an interest, Tottenham, another linked with Keane in the past too, could be in for ex-Luton and Brentford forward Gray, according to our friends at Vital Burnley.

Interest from others in Burnley players isn't new, in fact rumoured interest in Andre Gray certainly isn't. The Clarets wouldn't want to sell the former Luton and Brentford striker but rumours again claim Premier League rivals could come calling.

According to the Telegraph, Everton and Tottenham, both linked previously, are looking towards Gray as they consider potential alternatives to players they might replace.

Everton's Romelu Lukaku could be prised away from Goodison Park and Tottenham's Vincent Janssen has failed to live up to expectation at White Hart Lane since his arrival at Spurs from Dutch football last summer.

Both are showing an interest in Gray, 25, who has scored 10 goals in 35 games in all competitions this season - he's found himself on the sidelines recently but should feature against West Ham on Sunday, which we'll all hope isn't his last game for the Clarets?

Gray, signed from Brentford in a club record deal in 2015, is about to move into the final year of his current contract at Turf Moor and that could become a factor in any decision made.

Goalscorers are able to do so at any level and Gray's proven he can do that as he's scored goals in the Premier League, as he had at all other levels in English football from non-league to the topflight.

A fine signing if Gray could be brought in to support Lukaku, but a direct replacement for the Belgium international should he leave at the end of the season? I'm not convinced.
