Andre Gray next club: Promotion hopefuls and Premier League clubs eye Watford striker

Tue, 17 April 2018, 11:03

Watford’s club record signing Andre Gray from Burnley last summer has struggled to make the desired impact this season, with the majority of his appearances coming from the bench - in fact he only made one appearance in the last seven league fixtures. What Are The Odds looks at Andre Gray next club odds ahead of this summer’s transfer window.

Bookmaker BetVictor are currently pricing Cardiff as the 4/1 (5.00) favourites to sign Andre Grey this summer from Watford, despite only arriving at Vicarage Road last summer for a club-record fee in the region of £18.5m. Managerial changes this season have likely not helped Gray’s cause at Watford and a summer escape to a new club looks to be the most likely option and Cardiff who are looking set for a Premier League return would likely give the 26-year old the playing time he’s looking for.

Brighton and Everton are both priced at 8/1 (9.00) and it’s likely that both Premier League clubs will be seeking new firepower up-front for the next season. Whether the Everton owners have different ambitions that Gray is up for debate, but Brighton would likely welcome the chance to bid for the Wolverhampton born striker.

Interestingly dropping down to the outsiders in this marker, Wolverhampton Wanderers are promoted back to the Premier League and they are given odds of 16/1 (17.0). Emotional sentiment could play a part in the decision as Andre Gray was born in the area and actually featured for their youth team until 2004, so there could be more to this than the long odds on-offer.

West Ham and Leicester are interesting picks albet with odds of 12/1 (13.0). The Hammers showed interest in Gray prior to his signing at Watford, but now could be the time as the east London club need a big summer in terms of recruitment if they are to avoid a repeat relegation fight again next season.

Leicester may have a fight on their hands to keep hold of Riyad Mahrez and Jamie Vardy this summer, so it’s not inconceivable that Gray ends up at the King Power Stadium after the summer.

Aston Villa are big outsiders at 20/1 (21.0) and could be an option should Steve Bruce guides the club back to the Premier League (likely via the playoffs).
