Juve resisting Demiral bids

Leicester City and Borussia Dortmund have reportedly submitted €30m bids for Juventus defender Merih Demiral, with the Bianconeri resisting for now.

Sky Sport Italia pundit Gianluca Di Marzio states that both clubs have proposed offers to the Italian giant for the Turkish defender.

Leicester, who were also reported to be interested in Daniele Rugani, have supposedly made a €30m offer to Juve for Demiral.

Furthermore, Bundesliga side Dortmund have presented a €40m deal for the 21-year-old.

Juventus are hesitant to sell the defender, hoping to offload Rugani or Emre Can in an attempt to reduce their hefty wage bill.

Demiral scarcely played in the first three months of the season, but started the final four games of 2019.

His performances have seen him rise up the pecking order in the centre of the Juve rear-guard.

Juve only signed Demiral from Sassuolo last summer for €18m.
