Manchester United and Arsenal are reportedly set to do battle over the signature of Juventus full-back Merih Demiral in the January transfer window.

Manchester United and Arsenal will reportedly do battle over the signature of Juventus full-back Merih Demiral in the January transfer window.

The 21-year-old only moved to Turin over the summer but has been granted just one Serie A start under new manager Maurizio Sarri so far this term.

Amid interest from both United and Arsenal, Demiral will consider leaving in January should his situation in Turin fail to improve.

According to Tuttosport, Juventus will be open to cashing in on the Turkey international if the right offer comes along in January.

It is claimed that both clubs sent scouts to watch the defender in action during Euro 2020 qualifiers against Iceland and Andorra this month.

Juventus sporting director Fabio Paratici recently confirmed that the club received an offer from United for Demiral at a time when they were chasing Harry Maguire.
