Which transfer is often credited with the downfall of Jose Mourinho during his first stint as Chelsea boss?

Juve are said to be considering cashing in on the interest in January, with the Italian club having paid €18m (£15m) to secure the 21-year-old’s signature from Sassuolo in the summer.

As such, there is the possibility of the Serie A club turning a major profit amid intense interest from the English giants.

Excellent player

Juve have not really used Demiral this term.

He has played just twice in all competitions, once in Serie A and once in the Champions League.

Perhaps Spurs and other such English clubs are merely going off his performances for Sassuolo, where he was absolutely superb.

Per WhoScored, he made 14 appearances for the club and registered 1.7 tackles per game on average, per WhoScored, 1.4 interceptions, 5.6 clearances and 0.8 blocks.

Should Spurs sign Demiral?

Yes, big talent

He also averaged a pass completion rate of 87% while also scoring two goals.

This is a player who burst onto the scene last season and at Juve, he has been brought in as a potential star of the future.

At the age of 21, he could well be that somewhere else; Spurs, for example, need a replacement to Jan Vertonghen and Toby Alderweireld, whose contracts both expire at the end of the season.

They should do their very best to attempt to beat their competition to his signature.

Meanwhile, Spurs fans aren’t happy to see one player back to full fitness.
