Juventus Set to Sign Sassuolo Defender Demiral



Juventus have completed the €15 million (£13m/$17m) signing of Sassuolo defender Merih Demiral, as per reports. 

Demiral impressed in a half-season with Sassuolo in 2018-19, making 14 Serie A starts after his loan move from Turkish side Alanyaspor.

Sassuolo will make that loan permanent on July 1, and are now set to sell the Turkish international to the Serie A champions.

Demiral will join the Bianconeri on a five-year contract.

Juventus fought off late interest from Atletico Madrid in Demiral, who can play at centre-back and at right-back.

Juve are set to evaluate Demiral in the pre-season before determining whether to keep him on the team or send him out on loan for more seasoning.
