The Verdict: Demiral would be an excellent fit for the Toffees

Undoubtedly, Demiral would be a high profile signing for the Toffees as they look to improve on their 10th placed finish last time out in the Premier League [ESPN].

In 2020/21, he made 24 appearances for the Turin based side as they secured UEFA Champions League qualification on the final day of the campaign [BBC].

Encouragingly for Everton supporters, the Turk made an average of 2.6 clearances per 90 minutes across last year [WhoScored].

To put this into perspective, this was the second-highest average rate out of the entire Juventus first-team squad [WhoScored].

Given his relatively young age, Demiral could potentially be a key figure at Goodison Park for years to come should he make the move to Goodison Park. Everton should look to press ahead and get the deal over the line.
