Juventus ready to listen to offers of around € 40m for defender Demiral

Turkish center-back could leave Turin this summer if another club hits the price asked by the Italian giants

Juventus could be convinced to sell defender Merih Demiral this summer if another club were to meet their assessment of the Turkish center-back.

Goal can confirm that Juve would be ready to consider offers of around 40million euros (£ 35million / $ 48million) once the summer market opens.

Demiral’s representatives recently met with club officials to express their hope that the defender will play an important role under new manager Massimiliano Allegri, but Juve are unwilling to guarantee that at the moment.

Demiral’s time at Juventus

Demiral joined Juventus in July 2019, moving to Turin after shining at Sassuolo.

Prior to his time there, he featured for Alanyaspor and Sporting CP reserves after initially being recruited by Fenerbahce Academy.

The 23-year-old Turkey international has only played 32 times in his two seasons, having missed a lot of time with an ACL injury.

His role at Juventus, meanwhile, is far from guaranteed as he rivals Giorgio Chiellini, Leonardo Bonucci and Matthijs de Ligt for central defense positions.

Internationally, Demiral has made 24 appearances for Turkey and was part of the squad for this summer’s Euro, where he unfortunately scored against his side against Italy to open the tournament.

Turkey were eliminated after the group stage after losing all three matches.
