Former Premier League footballer Carlton Palmer believes that Demarai Gray could turn out to be really good business for Everton.
BBC Sport reported that Gray made the move from Bayer Leverkusen to Everton for a fee of £1.7m and the winger put pen to paper on a three-year deal.
Everton signed five players in the window, including Gray, as Andros Townsend, Asmir Begovic, Andy Lonergan and Salomon Rondon joined Gray at Goodison Park, and the Toffees have started the Premier League season in fine form, already picking up seven points from a possible nine.
Gray has been in good form as well for Everton as he has two goals in the Premier League so far in just three appearances, and Palmer believes he could turn out to be a really good piece of business for the Toffees.
He told The Transfer Tavern: “What did they pay for him? Just under two million? He’s got tremendous pace, we’ll have to see we can’t say five games into the Premier League season he is the bargain of the summer, but let’s see.
“If he continues to do what he’s doing, he could turn out to be a really good bit of business by Everton.”
Everton will be hoping that both Gray and the team can keep up their current form as they look to improve on last season’s tenth-place Premier League finish under Carlo Ancelotti, prior to his departure to Real Madrid.
