The report claims that Arsenal and Liverpool are involved in a ‘fierce race’ for the rising star and that they are now prepared to match Juvetnus’ €40m asking price.

Juventus reportedly expects a fee of €40 million for Yıldız for their star man despite being aged just 18-years-old.

The striker is under contract until 2027 and Juventus would ideally like to keep him on as they did in January but interest continues to grow and the financial incentive could become too much to refuse this summer.

Yildiz burst onto the scene this season establishing himself as a first team striker for the Italian giants and breaking into the Turkish national team setup.

The forward is likely to play an important roll for Turkiye at Euro 2024 this summer where his value could continue to rise.

Allegri has lauded Yıldız as “a machine made to win,” highlighting his talent and potential.

Juventus fans have drawn comparisons to club legend Alessandro Del Piero, recognizing Yıldız’s attacking flair.

Despite his young age, Yıldız has already accumulated 1,233 minutes across various competitions for Juventus this season, contributing 5 goals and 1 assist.
