It's time for this Leicester City player to step up and cement a place in the starting eleven

DATE: 09.09.2017 - THE CUNNING FOX - NEWSDESK

 

Demarai Gray's name was linked with a number of rival Premier League clubs throughout August but the winger is staying with Leicester City.

The 21-year-old is visibly frustrated with his peripheral role in Craig Shakespeare's team and he must seize his opportunity and prove the club right for turning down a deadline day offer from Bournemouth.his worth by knuckling down and convincing manager Craig Shakespeare he is worth including in first team squad.

Riyad Mahrez's presence has limited Gray's opportunities so far although the talented youngster proved his effectiveness whilst on International Duty with a superb curling strike in England Under 21's 3-0 victory over Latvia.

Aidy Boothroyd had previously left the winger out of the squad for their match against Holland claiming he was still affected by the ongoing transfer speculation.The 21-year-old admitted that he 'will have to do the talking with his feet' and that he would prefer 'to play every minute' of Leicester's matches.

Gray is symptomatic of many young wingers in the top flight. He is capable of the unpredictable and can be unplayable if in the right frame of mind but inconsistencies creep into his game and the instant injection of pace and trickery is often best deployed with 15 minutes left to play.

The Cherries submitted a last minute bid for the former Birmingham winger but it was rebuffed by Leicester. Eddie Howe's side had been continually linked with Gray throughout August but failed to land their target. Spurs were also believed to be interested in the services of the wide-man but the rumoured 30 million bid never materialised.

Here are the TCF predictions:
The club have shown faith in the wide-man by rejecting big-money bids and he must repay that trust by breaking into the first team and show the kind of form which persuaded former boss Claudio Ranieri to take a punt on the youngster. 

Leicester have made a decent start to the season despite facing Arsenal, Manchester United and Chelsea in their opening four Premier League matches and are unlikely to become embroiled in a relegation battle this time around.

They are priced at 4/5 in football betting markets to finish in the top half and will be reliant on their excellent home form to propel them up the table.Despite intense transfer speculation, winger Riyad Mahrez has performed admirably for the Foxes this season and has set a good example for frustrated players such as Demarai Gray.

The Algerian has made no attempt to disguise his desire to secure a move away from the King Power but remains with the club until at least January.

The 26-year-old has still contributed to the side's output and worked hard on the pitch despite his name linked to Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal.Gray must concentrate on improving his consistency and delivery during cameo performances and prove his worth to Shakespeare and the fans over the coming months.

He must break into the first team and show he can cut it in the Premier League week in, week out and put all of his frustrations behind him.
