Manchester United, Arsenal and Tottenham target Merih Demiral has had a price tag placed on him, according to a report in Italy.

Demiral is becoming increasingly frustrated with his current situation at Juventus and Bleacher Report claimed last week a move away from Juve early next year is “developing into a real possibility”.

The 21-year-old has only made one appearance in Serie A for Maurizio Sarri’s side so far this term having been unable to find game time ahead of the likes of Matthijs de Ligt and Leonardo Bonucci.

Turkey international Demiral has been linked with both Manchester United and Arsenal in recent weeks, while Spurs are also interested in the tough defender, claim Bleacher.

The Daily Express, have also recently claimed that should Demiral choose to leave the club in January, his employers will not stop him from trying to do so, with Sarri said to be happy with his current options at the back.

And now, according to Calciomercato.com, Juventus want to get at least €30million for Demiral with Serie A rivals AC Milan also keen on the player, who has forged a brilliant partnership with Leicester’s Caglar Soyuncu for Turkey.

Previous talk has seen the highly-rated centre-back priced up at €40million, but it appears Juve could accept a lesser offer as they look to cash in on a player who cannot force his way into Sarri’s plans.

Arsenal and Manchester United sent scouts to watch the player in action for Turkey v Iceland in Istanbul in the last international break.

And the Gunners – whose defence has come under serious scrutiny so far this season – are apparently prepared to sacrifice Hector Bellerin in order to bring Demiral in.
