Lots of Everton fans have been left buzzing over recent comments which emerged from Demarai Gray.
Speaking to the media after the Toffees managed to draw 1-1 at Manchester United in the Premier League on Saturday, his comments since being shared by the Merseyside club on their official Twitter channel, the 25-year-old has said: “I have a manager here and a team that believes in me and give me the freedom to express myself.”
Should Everton have signed Gray?
The winger was pivotal in the equaliser for Andros Townsend as he raced down the flank on the counterattack, and in general he is finding life very enjoyable under Rafa Benitez.
Gray has scored three goals and supplied one assist in seven Premier League games so far this term (Transfermarkt), and he looks like he is going to turn out to be one of the bargains of the summer transfer window after the Toffees paid a mere £1.8m to Bayer Leverkusen to sign him in July.

“Outstanding player. What a buy.”
