Merih Demiral might leave Atalanta this summer. But first of all, the Italian side needs to redeem the defender’s services.
Journalist Daniele Longo claims that Atalanta could sell Demiral in the approaching summer transfer window if a suitor submits an offer of around €30-35million for the Turkey international. La Dea are open to letting him leave just one year after signing him on a season-long loan with an obligation to buy.
The Old Lady agreed on a loan fee of around €3million plus another €20million to sign Demiral on a permanent deal. Per the report, they are ready to redeem the player permanently by paying the agreed amount before the end of his loan spell.
Several clubs from the Premier League are understood to be interested in the 24-year-old centre-half. Demiral has made an immediate impact at Bergamo this season, having made 25 league appearances thus far.
