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.
Why another winger. This is clearly not a Jose signing! Another signing by the board to think they can make a quick buck

If we sign Demarai Gray I think it proves Jose has no say in transfers at the club.

I’m sorry but Demarai Gray & Josh King are not going to help us challenge for trophies and the league this season. They’re significant enough signings at all, poor ambition yet again!

Demarai gray is a proper Levy signing wants a young england player turned into a superstar for re sale trouble is Jose won’t have a place for him he simply isn’t better than what we have and will stay on the bench out of form

In an area we have plenty choices, and he still hasn’t got a regular starting berth at Leicester where Albrighton is his competition!

Does he? I have my doubts about anyone who says Demarai Gray would be a GREAT signing for Spurs.

Demarai Gray would be be a fine signing and up the homegrown quota

Tottenham have held preliminary negotiations over signing Demarai Gray from Leicester City. José Mourinho has already personally spoken to the player who is open to the move.

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.
