Report: Hull City chase 24-year-old Brentford striker Andre Gray

Hull City are chasing Brentford striker Andre Gray, say reports.

According to the Daily Mail, Hull are pursuing Brentford striker Andre Gray to fire in the goals to launch them back into the Premier League.

Following the sale of James Chester to West Brom and Robbie Brady's move to Norwich, the club seemingly have cash to spend on Championship reinforcements.

And the Mail's report suggests Brentford value Gray, who signed from Luton Town in June 2014, at around £7 million.

The 24-year-old scored 17 goals in 46 league appearances last season, as he fired the Bees to the play-offs - in which they were ultimately unsuccessful. He also proved a creative force for his side, fashioning 39 key passes in total, while weighing in with six assists. 

In the final third, Gray directly contributed to 22% of Brentford's total goal output, which saw him ranked third in the division based on his overall influence, behind only Ipswich's Daryl Murphy (36%) and Middlesbrough's Patrick Bamford (23%).

A young English talent, who possesses a clear knack for finding the back of the net, Gray could be the perfect man to bolster Steve Bruce's attacking options at Hull ahead of the upcoming Championship campaign. Brentford would surely prefer a stay, though?
