Juventus centre-back Merih Demiral has been ruled out for the rest of the season, according to a report on the Daily Mail.
The 21-year-old centre-back ruptured his cruciate ligaments in his knee after landing awkwardly during Juventus’ 1-2 victory over AS Roma on Sunday.
As seen on the Daily Post, the Toffees have been monitoring the Turkish international and were considering a move for him this month.

The news comes as a blow for Everton because it now means that they’ll need to look elsewhere for a new centre-back to sign.
I believe that the club would have struggled to sign the Turkish star anyway, because of his recent impressive displays for Juventus.
