The 21-year-old cut a frustrated figure last season making nine Premier League starts as the former champions title defence was left in tatters.

Gray made noises last term feeling he deserved an extended run in the side and will speak to new Foxes boss Craig Shakespeare, especially with Riyad Mahrez looking for a summer King Power exit.

The Brummie admitted he found last season “very tough” hoping to feature more for the East Midlands side with Spurs and Liverpool are closely monitoring his situation.

MirrorSport claim the winger does not have a buy-out clause in his current deal at the King Power.

Gray joined the Foxes from home town club Birmimgham City for £3.5million in Janaury 2016.

Arsenal are keen on the Algerian but the clubs look far apart on their valuation of the winger who signed a new contract last August.
