Tottenham Hotspur: Spurs eye Merih Demiral transfer - Tottenham Hotspur Transfer Rumours

Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly eyeing up a move to try and sign Merih Demiral in the summer transfer window.

The Lowdown: Tottenham need new centre-back

Given that Spurs conceded 45 goals in the Premier League in the 2020/21 season, which is a rate of more than a goal a game, they clearly need to bolster up the defence.

A brand new central defender would go a long way in doing this, and given the impact that the likes of Virgil Van Dijk and Ruben Dias have had on both Liverpool and Manchester City respectively, the North London club will be hoping that a new centre-back could make a similar one.

The Latest: Tottenham eye Demiral

As per Tuttosport (via Sport Witness), Demiral is on the agenda of the Lilywhites, and they may have an advantage over other clubs in the race to sign the Juventus man.

Fabio Paratici signed him for the Old Lady from Sassuolo back in 2019, and the news outlet describes THFC’s new managing director of football as his ‘discoverer’.

Both Everton and Atalanta are also in the hunt for his signature, and any deal could be done after Euro 2020, with Demiral currently representing Turkey in the tournament.

The Verdict: Sign him

It would be a gamble signing Demiral, but it is a gamble that Tottenham should be willing to take.

Described as ‘outstanding’ by Italian media after a stellar performance for Juve back in February against eventual Serie A title winners Inter Milan, the six-foot-two colossus certainly has the physical attributes to cope with the demands of the top flight.

Should Tottenham sign Demiral?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Winning over four aerial duels per 90 minutes and at just 23 years of age as well, Demiral certainly still has a lot of potential, and given how fond Paratici is of him, it could well turn out to be a match made in heaven.
