The North London outfit are keen on moving early for Yildiz to strengthen their attack in January.

The highly rated 18-year-old joined Juventus from Bayern Munich and has already broke onto the scene impressing at both club and international level.

Yildiz recently got his first start for Turkiye and scored in the 3-2 away win against Germany – his country of birth.

The powerful forward is versatile in attack and can play in deeper roles, out wide or as the front man.

Despite his age the rising star has began attracting interest from across Europe with Liverpool also being closely linked as reported by CalcioMercato.

Juventus recently extended his contract until 2027 and have already rejected loan offers for Yildiz.

The Italian giants see Yildiz as developing into a star player for the club but would consider offers for the right price due to their financial position.

The youngster would not be available for cheap but he is one of the brightest attacking talents in world football.

Yildiz already has three international caps for Turkiye and is expected to join the squad at Euro 2024 this summer after impressing in the qualification stage.

Turkish national team manager Vincenzo Montella has praised Yildiz and sees him as being an important member of the squad already.

The forward made five appearances for the Juventus Next Gen scoring and providing an assist before being promoted to the first team and making five appearances.
