Juve reject Leicester’s £25.5m bid for Demiral

Juventus have rejected an offer of £25.5m from Leicester City for defender Merih Demiral according to reports from Sky in Italy. They are also understood to have rejected an offer of £34m from Borussia Dortmund for the 21-year-old. Demiral joined Juventus from Sassuolo in July but is yet to cut it as a regular under Maurizio Sarri. He only has 5 games under his belt. He's a center-back who can also deputize as a right-back and has been capped 12 times by the Turkish national team.

AC Milan eye move for either Rugani or Demiral

AC Milan will move for either of Daniele Rugani or Merih Demiral from Juventus to bolster their defensive options. The Rossoneri's start to life this season has been disappointing as they currently sit 13th in the Serie A, 7 points behind Napoli who are 4th on the log. It can also be recalled that they have a new manager in their ranks. Regardless, it has been messy for AC Milan this term although they are desperate to finish in a spot that'll see them qualify for the UEFA Champions League. That's a very tough task presently. AC Milan have conceded 13 goals in 9 league games this season and this is a very poor defensive record for a side that wants to make it to Europe's elite club competition.
