Tottenham eyeing a move for Juventus defender Merih Demiral

According to a report from Football.london, Tottenham Hotspur are looking at Juventus star Merih Demiral as an option to bolster their defence in the current transfer window.

With the signing of Carlos Vinicius completed, Tottenham will turn their attention towards signing a new centre-back before Monday’s transfer deadline day. (h/t Football.london)

Milan Skriniar

Inter Milan centre-back Milan Skriniar is the priority target for Tottenham Hotspur heading into the final few days of the transfer window. However, given the difference in valuation between the two clubs, a deal looks difficult at the moment. And, the club is keeping their options open if they miss out on Skriniar.

And Juventus’ Merih Demiral is one such option that the club is considering to make a move for. The 22-year-old started out at Turkish giants Fenerbahce and had stints at Sporting Lisbon, Alanyaspor and Sassuolo before joining Juventus last summer.

However, the Turkish international endured a difficult debut season in Turin, owing to a cruciate ligament knee injury. Having been restricted to just eight appearances in 2019/20, Demiral played just seven minutes in Juve’s 2020/21 season opener.

Given his lack of opportunities in Italy, Demiral has been linked with a switch to Premier League in the past. And, Tottenham have emerged as a potential suitor for the 22-year-old centre-back. (h/t Football.london)

With Jan Vertonghen leaving the club at the end of the last season, there is a vacancy in the squad that needs to be filled. Besides, Davinson Sanchez hasn’t always looked convincing either. So, bringing in a new defender before the window closes would be the right move.

However, Demiral’s recent injury history makes him somewhat of a wildcard. But given his age and potential, the 22-year-old can prove to be an asset in the long run.
