Everton will look to sell players this summer and generate funds that can ease the financial worries and allow the club to bring players to Goodison Park. Some Everton players are already generating interest with Demarai Gray being the latest player to get linked with a move away.

Everton are looking to sign a striker this summer but there do not seem to be any plans to sign wingers at this point. The Toffees sold Anthony Gordon for £45 million in January and failed to replace him, leaving Sean Dyche with just three fit wingers. Dwight McNeil, Alex Iwobi and Demarai Gray were wingers available to Dyche as Andros Townsend remained sidelined because of an injury.

Now, EFC have released a list of players that have not been retained for the 2023-24 Premier League season. Townsend has not been offered a new deal and the Englishman will walk out as a free agent at the end of this month.

Fulham keen to sign Everton winger Demarai Gray

According to Sky Sports, Fulham are interested in signing Gray from Everton. The London club have asked about Gray’s availability this summer as clubs remain keen on the 26 year old speedster. The former Leicester City man will enter the final 12 months of his deal this summer, although, there is an option to extend his deal for another year. At this point Everton’s stance on Gray is unknown.

EFC signed Gray in the summer of 2021 for €2 million (£1.7 million) from Bayer Leverkusen. He has been electric for the Toffees and scored some outstanding goals. Gray has netted four goals in the Premier League this term, and is club’s third best goalscorer this season.

Under Dyche, he has been deployed as a forward in absence of Dominic Calvert-Lewin as the 51 year old has preferred McNeil and Iwobi on the flanks. From the outside, Gray doesn’t strike as a player that Dyche would prefer. The Englishman doesn’t offer much physicality and isn’t sturdy going forward. Gray is married to his pace and can produce blistering counter attacks, which is something that Dyche does admire.

His current market value is €20 million and selling him even at his market value would see Everton earn a massive profit of 900%. If Gray is sold, EFC will have to go winger shopping as they would only be left with Iwobi and McNeil as wide options.

In the Farhad Moshiri era, there have been rare instances where transfers can be deemed successful. The British-Iranian businessman has poured over £500 million in transfers and rarely got better returns but if EFC do sell Gray for his market value, they can generate profits of 900%.
