Leicester City showed interest in Merih Demiral last summer and even made a ‘monstrous’ offer for signing the Juventus player. A move didn’t materialise then because the Old Lady blocked the Foxes’ transfer approach.
Calciomercato once again relays the failed efforts made by the Premier League side to take the 23-year-old.
In the past, the Serie A side ‘resisted’ tempting proposals from England, with ‘Leicester in the front now’, and AC Milan. That’s because Juve chief Fabio Paratici valued the defender ‘a lot’.
The situation has changed now and the Turkey international is no longer ‘non-transferable’ for the Turin club.
Calciomercato further adds the Italian club will not consider any other formulas, like a loan deal with obligation/option to buy, to sanction the player’s transfer in the next market.
With Juventus setting the conditions to allow the Turkish defender to leave, it now remains to be seen whether Leicester will rekindle their interest in signing Demiral in the summer.
