Pep Guardiola is going through a rough season with Manchester City as the title race is almost already over for the Citizens.

However, Guardiola wants to rebuild his squad in the following transfer windows.

The defense is in dire need of more bodies, and City found their target.

Merih Demiral is impressing for Juventus so far this season. He took over the starting spot and doesn’t want to let go.

However, with Matthijs de Ligt lurking and Chiellini returning from injury, Demiral could be back on the bench very soon.

Guardiola sees an opportunity as he wants to bring in the Turkish defender, according to Turkish sources.

Demiral has great ball-playing skills that could blend in perfectly with Pep’s system.
