Liverpool have been linked with numerous attackers and as per recent reports, Leicester City’s Demarai Gray is in the lime light as well.
According to Mirror, Klopp is closing in on a deal to hire the services of the 20-year-old England international, who has found himself in a complex situation with the Foxes.
Gray has mainly been a bench warmer in the current campaign and so far, he has only been able to start just 9 times in the league. Overall, he has featured in 29 league games this season, scored 1 goal and provided 4 assists.
Earlier in the month, it was reported that Demarai has a release clause of 22 million pounds ($29million) in his contract (Liverpool Echo).
However, as per the provided Mirror link, his buyout clause is just 12 million pounds. Liverpool are prepared to meet that sum and are confident of securing his signature.
Gray is mainly a left winger but Leicester have also effectively utilized him on the right flank and as a secondary striker as well. He is a talented attacker but without doubt he is not a proven quality star.
The Merseysiders need top quality players to challenge for the PL title next season and they are seriously linked with someone like Salah (via GdS), who has been many a times better than Gray this season.
Demarai is not even better than the likes of Firmino, Coutinho and Mane. He is probably good enough for Liverpool’s bench. In your opinion, should Klopp sign him?
