Arsenal, Man Utd, Milan watch Demiral

Arsenal, Manchester United and Milan are ready to swoop for Juventus and Turkey defender Merih Demiral in January.

According to Tuttosport newspaper, the Bianconeri are no longer set on keeping the 21-year-old centre-back if a strong offer arrives mid-season.

He was snapped up from Sassuolo over the summer for €18m, double the figure the Neroverdi paid to get him from Alanyaspor only six months earlier.

Demiral made only one appearance in a Juventus jersey, for 90 minutes against Hellas Verona in Serie A on September 21, but has fallen behind Daniele Rugani in the pecking order.

The Turin-based paper claims that Arsenal and Manchester United sent scouts to view Demiral in action during Turkey’s Euro 2020 qualifier this week.

The Gunners are particularly eager and could bid up to €40m for the battling central defender.

Milan have long been interested, but would most likely take Demiral on loan.
