Tottenham Hotspur-linked Demarai Gray reportedly refuses to extend his deal at Leicester City, paving the way for Spurs to swoop for the Englishman.

Tottenham Hotspur have reportedly been given the green light to move for Leicester City forward Demarai Gray.

With the 24-year-old struggling for starts over the likes of Harvey Barnes and Ayoze Perez at the King Power Stadium, Gray has been linked with a move elsewhere in recent weeks.

Tottenham, who recently welcomed Gareth Bale back to the club on a season-long loan from Real Madrid, have been previously credited with an interest in Gray, who will see his current deal at Leicester expire next summer.

According to Football Insider, Gray is edging closer towards the exit door at the King Power Stadium after refusing Leicester's most recent offer of a new contract.

The report claims that Tottenham have been monitoring the £20m-rated forward for a while and former manager Mauricio Pochettino was a strong admirer of the Englishman, although Spurs may be willing to wait until next summer to sign Gray as a free agent.

The former England Under-21 international has amassed 13 goals from 167 appearances for the Foxes since his arrival in 2016.
