Everton reportedly set to ramp up their pursuit for 25-year-old striker

According to reports, Everton are set to step up their interest in Burnley striker Andre Gray.

The Toffees are looking to sign Gray as they prepare for the departure of star striker Romelu Lukaku, who is expected to join Chelsea ahead of next season.

The 25-year-old Gray bagged nine goals this past season from 26 starts.  Gray has just one year left on his current deal with Burnley and the chances are high that he will consider a new challenge ahead of next season.

Burnley will also likely allow Gray to leave this summer as this may well be the final opportunity that they get to cash in from a sale of him.

In addition to Gray, Ronald Koeman are also said to be interested in luring Michael Keane from the Clarets as the Dutchman looks to bolster his side ahead of Europa League action.
