Manchester United and Arsenal are set to do battle in a bit to sign Juventus defender Merih Demiral.

Demiral is a 21-year-old Turkish defender, and is reportedly open to the idea of leaving Italy in a search for regular first-team football.

According to the Manchester Evening News, United and Arsenal are both said to be interested in signing the defender in January, though Italian giants AC Milan are also said to be keeping an eye on him.

The Old Trafford club have been linked with a host of players ahead of the January window, including Erling Haaland and Jadon Sancho.
