Prem scout backing France move for Leicester winger Demarai Gray

Leicester City winger Demarai Gray is being backed for a move to France.

Off contract in June, Gray is courting interest from AS Monaco and Olympique Marseille. Gray is now free to sign a pre-contract with any foreign club.

An unnamed Premier League scout told Marseille's Le Phoceen: "He's a very good player who keeps an excellent rating in England. He is still one of the very good wingers of his generation, even if his contractual situation at Leicester means that he is ignored by (manager Brendan) Rodgers and the directors.

"He is very quick and skilled at eliminating his opponent in the middle of the game, as well as against goalkeepers with a tendency to open his foot to find the opposite small side of the net.

"There will surely be competition, because I think that good English clubs will move, like Everton, Tottenham or Southampton."
