Arsenal are plotting a January move for Leicester City defender Caglar Soyuncu according to Transfermarketweb.

Per the source, the Gunners have been keeping tabs on Soyuncu since he was playing for Bundesliga outfit SC Freiburg.

The North London side are reportedly preparing to make another move for Soyuncu over the winter transfer window.

The report claims that the Foxes would want at least double the €21.5m fee they paid for him if a transfer were to go ahead.

Soyuncu has another two-years remaining on his Leicester contract but unless he signs an extension the Premier League side may not be able to get as high a fee as they want.

The Turkey international will have 12 months remaining on his contract next summer unless he signs a new deal.

The 25-year-old has established himself as a star player for Leicester since joining the club in 2019.

Soyuncu has made 93 appearances in total for Leicester and won the FA Cup and Super Cup last season.

The powerful centre-back has made 11 appearances in all competitions for the Foxes so far this season.

The defender also has 41 international caps for Turkey.
