Demarai Gray and Andros Townsend set to join Everton

Bayer Leverkusen winger Demarai Gray and his Crystal Palace counterpart Andros Townsend might join Everton this summer.

According to Paul Joyce of the Times, the Toffees are landing Townsend for free after he left Crystal Palace at the end of his deal last month and will pay £1.5 million for Gray.; the latter having been in the books of Leicester City where he felt he wasn't given enough chances.

25-year-old Gray won the Premier League with Leicester in 2015-16 but has struggled to impress since, scoring just 10 goals in over 120 top-flight games.

He moved to Leverkusen in January, where he scored once and assisted twice in 10 Bundesliga games, after failing to play regularly under Foxes boss Brendan Rodgers, and his six-month spell in Germany is set to end.

New Everton boss Rafael Benitez wants to strengthen his attack by adding wingers and while Townsend might not be a sure starter, his experience in the Premier League is something that will come in handy at Goodison Park.

The duo is arriving to replace Bernard and Cenk Tosu who is expected to leave the club this summer.
Apart from Gray and Townsend, Everton is close to signing Bournemouth goalkeeper Asmir Begovic.
