According to Gazzetta dello Sport, Everton are keen to sign Juventus defender Merih Demiral, and could use Moise Kean to secure him.

The Italian news outlet claims that Juventus are interested in Kean, but are not secure enough financially to pay for him.

As a result, Gazzetta dello Sport say that Andrea Pirlo’s side could offer a player in return. Aaron Ramsey, Adrien Rabiot and Federico Bernardeschi are mentioned as potential makeweights.

However, Everton want Demiral, who is not mentioned among those players Juventus are willing to trade.

To have their £29 million man Kean, a striker with 18 goals this season, as a bargaining chip looks likely to come in handy for the Toffees.

Interestingly, Demiral was wanted by Liverpool in January.

According to Sport Media Set, the Reds submitted a big-money offer for the 23-year-old, who has 19 caps for Turkey.

However, after that was rejected, Jürgen Klopp’s side never returned with an improved offer, and went on to sign Ozan Kabak and Ben Davies.

Everton’s Merseyside rivals don’t usually get it wrong in the transfer market.

In that respect, Demiral could turn out to be an excellent addition, if Carlo Ancelotti can get his hands on him that is.
