Everton ‘seriously interested’ in Juve’s Demiral as Max Aarons links played down

Everton ‘seriously interested’ in Juve’s Demiral as Max Aarons links played down

Everton cool Aarons interest

Everton have been in need of an addition at right-back for some time, with Seamus Coleman having reached the latter years of his career, and dropping in output.

Last season saw French defender Djibril Sidibé join on loan from Monaco, but the club decided not to pursue a permanent deal.

Max Aarons had been a touted name to fill the position, but Phil Kirkbride of the Liverpool Echo has suggested that he doesn’t ‘fit the profile’ of what Everton are seeking.

“The feedback recently was that he doesn’t fit the profile of player Everton are looking at,” he said. “But, it’s very early and the transfer market changes so quickly.

“People at the club like (Tariq) Lamptey while Everton have tried to sign (Diogo) Dalot in the past two summer windows but failed.”

Lamptey has just signed a new deal with Brighton, and would likely cost a significant fee.

Dalot, on the other hand, is surplus to requirements at Manchester United, and has spent a successful season on loan with AC Milan.

Demiral on the radar

However, one defensive player being very much eyed at Goodison Park is Merih Demiral.

CalcioMercato reporter Daniele Longo has revealed that the Toffees are preparing a €25-30 million offer for the Turkish defender.

After beginning his journey in Italy with Sassuolo, Demiral was quickly identified as a possible long-term successor to the Italian greats who have long manned the heart of the Juve defence.

However, similar to Daniele Rugani, he has struggled for regular game time, and could be tempted by consistent minutes at a club like Everton.

The Ancelotti factor is also a potentially significant pull, which helped lure the likes of James Rodriguez to the club.

The story is set to play out over the next couple of weeks, it appears.
