Tottenham fans want £30m-rated centre-back, after Champions League display

Tottenham were linked with a move for Merih Demiral in the summer – and Spurs fans want him, after he impressed against Manchester United.

Demiral, 23, joined Atalanta in the summer, which allowed Tottenham to complete a £50million move for Cristian Romero. He is on loan at Atalanta.

Turkey international Demiral has already turned out for numerous sides before joining Juventus – with Sassuolo and Sporting Lisbon on his CV.

His 32 appearances at Juventus was enough to convince Atalanta to replace Romero with the defender. But Tottenham are keen on Demiral.

TuttoSport say Tottenham were interested in the summer, with Juventus rating him at £30million. He was excellent against Manchester United.

Marking Cristiano Ronaldo, Demiral kept him quiet – until he leapt highest to head home the winner. Atalanta deserved more, than to lose 3-2.

What are Tottenham fans saying about Demiral, after OT display?

Tottenham have options at centre-back. Alongside Romero, Eric Dier’s form is improving. The England ace has been solid the last few games.

Davinson Sanchez is back-up, as is Joe Rodon – while Japhet Tanganga can also play in the middle of the defence. But Sanchez is error-prone.

Tanganga is better at right-back and Rodon is still learning his trade. Dier’s form has been questionable – so a new centre-back might be ideal.

Watching Demiral impress at Old Trafford, many Tottenham fans want the Turkish defender signed in the coming window.
