Juventus are ready to sell defender Merih Demiral this summer, and Everton and West Ham are ‘above all’ in showing interest in him
That’s according to Juve Live, who say the Bianconeri need to make money from transfers, and the Turkish international is at the top of their list.
They are ready to ‘deprive themselves’ of the central defender but will only do so for at least €35m.
That’s not scared away suitors, and there is ‘strong interest’ from the Premier League, particularly Everton and West Ham.
Demiral’s disappointing performances at the Euros have done little to reduce his value because of his age and potential.
Everton and West Ham are still seemingly willing to pay for him, and Juventus are hopeful he could be a ‘special sacrifice’ they need this summer to benefit the budget and fund their own business.
One potential route with the Toffees could be a deal with Moise Kean, who Juventus have been keen to bring back for the last year or more.
According to ‘market expert’ Luca Marchetti, though, that is something which is unlikely to happen.
“We have not had any feedback, but Juve is sure of a need for a striker, what kind of striker depends on Ronaldo,” he told ‘Tutti Convocati’, relayed by TuttoJuve.
“The nine that arrives will be more junior than Kean, who already has a rather important pedigree.”
