Some Spurs fans on social media are convinced that Daniel Levy is the architect behind Tottenham’s rumoured approach to sign Demarai Gray from Leicester City this summer.

Gray has fallen down the pecking order under Brendan Rodgers and saw his opportunities severely limited last season.

Football Insider reported on Tuesday that Spurs had opened talks with Leicester over signing the winger, who only has a year left to run on his deal at the King Power stadium.

The report claimed that Jose Mourinho had personally spoken to Gray about moving to Spurs and that the winger was keen on the idea.

However, some Spurs fans on social media have insisted that the Leicester winger is unlikely to be Mourinho’s choice and that the rumoured deal had Levy written all over it.

Barring a few fans who believed that Gray’s pace could make him a handy option for Spurs, many insisted that another winger was the last thing that the Lilywhites needed this summer.

Spurs Web Opinion

There is no way we would be trying to sign another winger this summer unless Mourinho has demanded that we bring one in. It might be the case that the Spurs boss wants to have four genuine wide options in the squad (Bergwijn, Son, Lucas plus one) in order to compete on all fronts next season. With respect to our transfer targets, Mourinho has made it clear that it is very much a collective effort. I doubt we would be pushing ahead with a move for a player unless the Portuguese coach gives his approval. I am not as puzzled by the links to Gray as some fans seem to be as I believe he can be an extremely effective impact substitute for us.

  1. I seriously do not understand this one at all, like a great many Spurs fans I find myself asking the question why another winger? Unless he significantly improves Tottenham’s forward line> Forgive me but would Demarai Gray do that….? He can’t even get a regular spot at Leicester, so what’s he going to bring to the Lane that improves us? I’m honestly starting to feel a little underwhelmed – yet again – at the meandering, hesitant and ambiguous transfer activity which seems to lack incisive and clear decision making. Why sign Gray when there are clearly much greater priorities to strengthen the team and squad? Where is the new right back (irrespective of whether Aurier stays or goes) I hear rumours of Docherty from Wolves now, after a host of other exciting names seem to have come and gone so rapidly in these regards with seemingly little merit of there mention? Where is the stalwart and reputable replacement in central defence that is going to take control of a wavering defence as well as the mantle from departing legend that is SuperJan Vertonghen, this is surely not just a requirement, but an absolute nailed on necessity? And as usual I’m left wondering when the hell are we going to bring in a proper striker as re-enforcement To HK? It seems like years since we have had real strength and depth in this department, and instead have merely flirted with such notions rather than acted with any real credibility! There are genuinely strikers out there to be had but is Levy prepared to act on this? Wilson from Bournemouth would be a good addition, Saurez who is heavily rumoured to be on the checkout list from Barca’ would be an extraordinary one, but given how Eboneezer Levy hangs on to the purse strings so tightly is in reality a lot less likely if truth be told. Nonetheless there is genuine need in this department, as in the other areas already mentioned previously. With the exception of Hojbjerg (as I’m not sure that Joe Hart can be considered a major coup) there is also constant doubt over Ndombele’s immediate future which would imply that a serious replacement for the powerhouse that was Moussa Dembele is still as yet unfulfilled. Personally I would love to see a player like Rakatic come for now,even if it was only for a couple of interim seasons, as a player of his quality and experience would be invaluable not just in actual footballing terms, but psychologically for the fans and squad alike. Lets face it Tottenham have been floundering this past couple of seasons and some real self-belief needs to be injected into the heart of the club to re-invigorate and regrow the clubs ambitions. Spurs were lucky to finish in sixth position given their erratic performances, and what concerns me here is that we are not only playing catch up to the likes of Liverpool, Man City and even Man Utd with the core strength of their squad, but we are in serious danger of being completely eclipsed by both Chelsea and Arsenal who are both investing heavily and with measured intent. Whilst I am not anticipating Leicester to have as solid a season as their last campaign, as with the likes of Everton, Wolves and perhaps one or two other surprise opponents unless Spurs act decisively in the this transfer window here, may find themselves difficultly jostling just for a rather bleak and disappointing sixth position. I keep hoping that the board will somehow wake up from an intransigent state and recognise the severity of the clubs faltering position, but thus far year in year out I seem to end up feeling perennially disappointed somehow. And what worries me most here is the unsettling feeling that frustratingly that is highly unlikely to change under the current set up>
