Report: Bournemouth interested in signing Birmingham City winger Demarai Gray

Bournemouth are reportedly looking to sign Birmingham City winger Demarai Gray, who has previously been linked with Tottenham Hotspur and Crystal Palace.

Bournemouth are hoping to complete the signing of Birmingham City winger Demarai Gray this summer, according to a report in the Daily Mail.

Gray had been of interest to Bournemouth back in January, but Eddie Howe's side failed to complete a transfer.

They hope that their newfound Premier League status will help convince Gray to sign up, though, and intend to make a bid in the coming months.

If they could land the 18-year-old trickster it would be a statement of the Cherries' intent in their first ever Premier League season, but signing the youngster could be challenging.

Tottenham Hotspur and Crystal Palace have both been linked with Gray in the Daily Mail previously, and they could well opt to challenge Bournemouth for the winger this summer if a transfer scramble is sparked.

Gray has played 43 games for Birmingham this term, scoring six times, and appears to be one of the star performers in the Championship.

He has no top-flight experience to speak of as yet, but the hope is that he will blossom into a future star and looks set to be one of the most in-demand players in the Football League this summer.
