A number of Tottenham Hotspur fans have taken to Twitter to comment on reports from Turkish outlet Fanatik claiming that Spurs are one of the sides interested in signing Merih Demiral.
Demiral’s future has become a talking point with the 22-year-old proving to be a more peripheral figure for Juventus this season.
He has made just five starts in Serie A so far this term. And it was suggested in the reports that concerns over his playing time heading into Euro 2020 may leave him considering his options.
Fanatik claims that a number of clubs want the centre-back. Tottenham are battling with the likes of Liverpool, Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid and Leicester City to sign the Turkey international.
In truth, it is difficult to see Spurs being the ones to sign Demiral in this window. Fanatik noted that Juventus want £45.2 million for the youngster. And it was claimed that a loan with an option to buy would not appeal to the Old Lady.
There seems to be a mixed response amongst Tottenham fans on social media. Understandably, plenty of fans cannot see a move happening.
The asking price is certainly a significant stumbling block.
But there are others who are clearly pleased about the links. They believe that he would be a fantastic addition to Jose Mourinho’s ranks if there is any chance of a deal – perhaps for a future window.
Here is how some of the fans have reacted to the reports…
you think we have 50M

Now this is the type of defender we should be going after. Before his injury he was looking really good at Juve. He’s been superb for Turkey & is still only 22. He’d be an excellent addition. https://t.co/Mna8NOYFjF
