At this point, it’s no secret that Merih Demiral could be on his way out from Juventus, and that Everton are interested.

The Turkish defender is one of the players who has been placed on the chopping block at the Serie A side, as they seek to undergo an overhaul of their squad.

We’ve had a number of articles on the matter already, some involving the idea of a swap for Moise Kean, while others believe Marcel Brands could submit an offer for the player.

Corriere Torino on Friday are in the latter group, explaining ‘something is moving, especially around Demiral’.

Making it clear the defender ‘is on sale’, it’s stated ‘his agents have been talking with different clubs for weeks and in particular with Carlo Ancelotti’s Everton’.

The Toffees are said to be ‘evaluating’ the idea of making a bid that would be between €25-30m.

Juventus, down their end, ‘would like to bring in a higher income’, especially since ‘half of Europe remain interested in Demiral’.

Manchester United and Atlético Madrid are named as two other clubs ‘in the platoon of aspirants’, which is why the centre-back ‘would like to wait until the Euros before making a final decision’.

The issue is: Juventus ‘are in a hurry’ to sell.
