Premier League duo eyeing Juventus defender Merih Demiral

Premier League pair Manchester United and Arsenal, as well as Serie A giants AC Milan are all reportedly pushing for a deal for Juventus defender Merih Demiral.

According to Calciomercato, the Turkish defender wants to leave the club soon despite only joining from Sassuolo in the summer in a deal worth approximately €18million.

He has only played 90 minutes throughout the entire season, and has not played at all since mid-September. The 21-year-old remains behind Matthijs De Ligt, Leonardo Bonucci and Daniele Rugani in the pecking order at the Juventus Stadium.

His contract at the club is set to run until the summer of 2024 so it could cost a considerable fee for either Manchester United, Arsenal and AC Milan to convince Juventus to sell their young centre-back.

Maurizio Sarri’s troops currently boast the second-best defence in the entirety of Serie A, with only Verona only conceding fewer than Juventus’ nine. They have not kept a clean sheet since their 3-0 success against Bayer Leverkusen in the UEFA Champions League at the beginning of October.

Juventus have a chance to keep a shut-out as they take on Torino the Turin derby on Saturday evening. They are at 8/15 with William Hill to earn three points.
