Arsenal fans are jumping for joy after the club were linked with a move for Juventus defender Merih Demiral.
According to Turkish Football, the Gunners have made contact with representatives of the Turkey international, with Unai Emery’s side having already registered their interest in the player before he made the move to Turin in last summer’s transfer window.
Can Arsenal keep hold of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang?
It is being reported by the Turkish publication that despite not wanting to sell the player, Juventus may consider offers of around €30m (roughly £25.9m).
The 6 foot 3 Demiral has been on the fringes of Maurizio Sarri’s side this season, making just a solitary appearance in a league game for the Italian club (via Transfermarkt).
Fans are approving the reports of a move for Demiral as they took to Twitter to react.
Here is a selection of tweets from the north London faithful:

Merih Demiral is probably the only defender that excites me as much as Upamecano. £28m is a steal of the highest order for the extremely talented 21-year old. He can play LCB as well. If we can’t sign Upa, then Demiral is a fantastic option to partner Saliba. https://t.co/JEctCKm7XX
