Juventus fans react as their defender Merih Demiral is linked with Everton and Tottenham

Juventus fans have been reacting on Twitter to reports that their defender Merih Demiral is a target for Premier League sides Everton and Tottenham Hotspur.

Tuttojuve have claimed both clubs have seen 30 million/£27 million bids rejected by the Italian giants.

Spurs lost Jan Vertonghen this summer, while Everton only have four central defensive options and two are currently out injured in Mason Holgate and Jarrad Branthwaite.

Demiral has been with Juventus since last summer after joining from Sassuolo.

The 22-year-old was expected to make a big impression at the club, but had a bit of a nightmare first season in Turin.

He found himself stuck behind the likes of Matthijs de Ligt and Leonardo Bonucci early on, and he then suffered an ACL injury.

In total, he was limited to just eight appearances in 2019/20, and he may be hoping for a fresh start under new manager Andrea Pirlo.

Demiral is a talented centre-half who is aggressive in the tackle and fearsome in the air, and Spurs fans have welcomed the reported interest on social media.

On the other side of the spectrum, Juventus fans have also been reacting, and it seems they are very much opposed to losing the star:
