Juventus are expected to complete the signing of Turkish centre-back Merih Demiral, despite late interest from Atletico Madrid.

The 21-year-old has been closely linked with a switch from Sassuolo to Juventus this summer after impressing during a 6 month stint with the Neroverdi.

Initial reports in January had suggested that Sassuolo had signed Dermial in synergy with Juventus, meaning the Bianconeri would get first refusal on the player.

Reports from the Spanish and Italian press hinted at interest from Atletico Madrid however Demiral is expected to be signed by Juventus, regardless.

Sky Sport Italia’s Gianluca Di Marzio reports that Juve will complete a €15m move for Demiral as Sassuolo will honour their agreement with the Bianconeri this summer.

The player is expected to join Juve immediately, despite a suggestion that he remain on loan with Sassuolo for a season.
