Juventus defender Merih Demiral has been linked with a move away from the Italian club this summer and it appears that Everton are well placed to secure his services.
The Premier League side has been linked with the Turkish defender for months now, and Corriere dello Sport claims that the Toffees are now leading the chase for the 23-year-old.
It remains to be seen whether the Premier League side are willing to come forward with a concrete offer for the player in the coming weeks now.
There is no doubt that Everton need to sign a quality centre half who can partner Ben Godfrey at the back for years to come.
Demiral is highly rated across Europe and can develop into a top-class player in the future.
The defender is thought to be looking for regular game time and it will be interesting to see if the new Juventus manager Max Allegri can give him the assurances he needs this summer.
The 23-year-old Turkish defender is set to decide his future after the European Championships.
Meanwhile, the Toffees will have to sort out their managerial situation before new signings can be finalised.
Carlo Ancelotti left the Premier League side for Real Madrid and the Merseyside outfit have been linked with the likes of David Moyes in recent weeks.
