Manchester United and Arsenal reportedly plan to go head to head for Juventus defender Merih Demiral ahead of the January transfer window.

Manchester United and Arsenal reportedly plan to go head to head for Juventus defender Merih Demiral ahead of the January transfer window.

The defender is said to be open to the prospect of leaving the Old Lady in January after only managing one appearance in Serie A this term.

AC Milan are also interested in signing the player, but Juventus will only consider doing a permanent deal for the 19-year-old as opposed to a loan move.

According to Calcio Mercato, United and Arsenal both plan to keep a close eye on Demiral as January approaches.

Juventus sporting director Fabio Paratici recently confirmed that the Red Devils made an unsuccessful summer approach for Demiral, who is valued at £34m by the Serie A champions.
