Freiburg defender Caglar Soyuncu has been closely linked with a move to Arsenal.
Soyuncu’s agent Mustafa Dogru has confirmed that his client wants Premier League football and that he will be holding talks with more than one club but did not confirm whether Arsenal were among the sides he will be negotiating with.
The agent did claim that Freiburg are open to a potential transfer deal.
“The main objective of the player is to play in the Premier League, that I can tell you at the moment,” Dogru told football.london.
“We are negotiating with some clubs, but I can’t give the name of the clubs – I’m sorry.
“Next week we will have some meetings and I think in 10 or 15 days his situation will be clear.
“They (Freiburg) are open to negotiations.”
The Bundesliga outfit are reported to be looking for a fee around £35 million for the Turkey international.
Soyuncu has established himself as a first-team regular at Freiburg after moving from the second tier of Turkish football in 2016 for a £2.4 million fee.
The defender joined Freiburg from Altinordu and has gone onto make 55 appearances in all competitions.
During the same time period, Soyuncu has become a first-choice centre-back for the Turkey national team and has 13 international caps to his name.
The highest rated defender is considered one of the most promising defenders in the league.
Dogru believes his client is ready for Premier League football after proving himself at Germany.
“Yes, he is ready,” Dogru told football.london. “He came from the second division in Turkey to Bundesliga 1 and has had a good experience the last two years.
“The difference between Bundesliga 1 and the Premier League is not as big as from the Turkish second division and Bundesliga 1, so he is ready.
“He is perfect for the Premier League. We are sure he is going to make a big impact in the first season.”
Dogru added: “He’s very quick, he can use both feet and has excellent technique.
“He was playing also as a defensive midfielder when he was young. He plays almost 85 per cent in the head.
“Over short distances he is very quick and fast, so with these qualities and specialities, he is unique at the moment actually.”
