Juventus have a void to fill their defense after parting ways with Turkish center-back Merih Demiral this summer. the Bianconeri are already looking and could deprive the Premier League of one of their best defenders in the weeks to come.
Reports suggest that Juventus have laid eyes on Manchester city central defender Aymeric Laporte to strengthen their options at the heart of the defense for the coming season. An official approach should be made by the Italian giants very soon.
Recall that Juventus have not yet compensated for the loss of Merih Demiral this summer. The defender recently left the Allianz Stadium to join Atalanta, leaving a significant void in the squad that must be filled.
Meanwhile, Barcelona are also said to be interested in signing the defender, but Blaugrana are currently in a huge economic mess, making it almost impossible to reach a deal.
Laporte still has four years on his contract with Manchester City. According to Transfermarkt, the Spaniard has a market value of € 45million, but the Premier League giants might be willing to sell below that price given the situation surrounding the player.
