Arsenal in 'concrete talks' over signing Caglar Soyuncu from Freiburg

11 June 2018

Caglar Soyuncu's agent has claimed that Arsenal are in "concrete" talks to sign the defender this summer.

It would be interesting to see how the 22-year-old centre-back copes with the pressure of playing in the Premier League.

It looks like the Gunners are in pole position as Soyuncu's agent, Mustafa Dogru, has now confirmed that he's in advanced with Arsenal after head of recruitment Sven Mislintat identified him as a prime target.

Soyuncu would be a superb addition to the Gunners' squad, but Arsenal fans would have been concerned to see reports suggesting that Liverpool have entered the race to sign the Turkey global (Mirror).

Soyuncu confirmed that the Gunners expressed an interest in signing him, but he says that his future will be discussed further after the worldwide break.

"Sven is interested in Caglar - there are concrete talks, and all that remains is for a fee to be agreed", Dogru said. "He first scouted him back in Germany", he explained to Turkish Football.

Dogru admitted that several clubs from around Europe are keen on Soyuncu but believes the defender is most suited to the Premier League. Sven is interested in Caglar.

Should both Papastathopoulos and Soyuncu join Arsenal, it would surely mean that one of the club's existing centre-backs will depart, with new head coach Unai Emery assembling his squad ahead of his first campaign in charge.

Premier League giants Arsenal are on the verge of making another transfer coup this summer, having been linked with a move for Caglar Soyuncu. We will see what happens next'.

'I'm not surprised by the interest, Caglar is a modern defender, he's mobile, fast, dual-footed, has an excellent passing range.

"He's tough and very physical, and I think the Premier League is ideal for a defender with his attributes". Arsenal, in particular, can provide him with a flawless platform to take his game to a whole new level, thanks to their ability to nurture young talents.
