Yildiz, 18, picked up the ball on the left wing and drove it inside the pitch.

The ace took on three players before powering his shot past a helpless Vincenzo Fiorillo in the Salernitana net.

Fans were immediately impressed with the goal as they flocked to social media.

One posted: “Lad is a baller.”

A second wrote: “Kenan Yildiz can’t stop scoring.”

A third commented: “It’s really difficult to watch Kenan Yildiz and think we aren’t witnessing a special player in the making.”

A fourth said: “I don’t want to be dramatic but Kenan Yildiz is GOD I mean. A phenomenon. I apologise for the hyperbole but I believe it to be true.”

It is his second wondergoal in as many weeks as he netted a similar effort against Frosinone in December.


Despite only just breaking through to the Juventus first team this season Yildiz has already been linked with a high-profile exit from the club.

Mikel Arteta’s outfit have been heavily linked with a swoop for the Turkish wonderkid.

The Spanish manager is keen to strengthen his Arsenal squad in the January transfer window as they look to jump back to the top of the Premier League table.

Yildiz’s current contract expires in June 2027, so the Gunners will likely have to table a significant offer to convince Juventus to sell.

Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri has previously hailed the player and backed him for an “amazing career”.

He said: “I can say that he’s going to have an amazing career.

“He’s an extraordinary player.

“Yildiz is young and has enthusiasm, which is needed at these moments. He is wise for his age”.

Yildiz was previously on the books of Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich and was tracked by Barcelona.

In 2022 he made the switch to Juventus after his contract expired at Bayern and was included in a list of the 60 best players born in 2005.

He has already appeared for the Turkish national team, despite being born in the German city of Regensburg, having made his debut against Croatia in a Uefa Euro 2024 qualifying match.

He scored his first national goal in a 3-2 win over Germany in November in Berlin.
