Arsenal To Send Officials To Turkey For £35m Bundesliga Star Caglar Soyuncu Ahead Of International Clash

Caglar Soyuncu

Freiburg defender Caglar Soyuncu has been closely linked with a move to Arsenal.

A source close to the player revealed to Turkish-Football that Arsenal are expected to send club officials to keep tabs on the defender over his next international games against Iran, Tunisia and Russia.

The 22-year-old has been called up to the Turkey national side and is likely to start against Iran on Monday at the Basaksehir Fatih Terim Stadium.

Soyuncu is keen on a move to the Premier League or La Liga after establishing himself for the past two seasons in the Bundesliga.

Turkish-Football quoted Soyuncu as saying: “One of the biggest clubs in England, Arsenal are interested but it is not a done deal yet.

“I am going to play the international games first and then we will make a decision, I will hold further talks afterwards.”

Despite his age the rising star has managed to establish himself as a first-choice pick for Turkey as well as Freiburg.

Freiburg value their star defender as being worth in the region of £35 million.

Twenty-five percent of the transfer fee would go to Soyuncu’s previous club Altinordu.

Soyuncu made more than 30 appearances for Altinordu before moving from the Turkish second tier to the Bundesliga in a £2.4 million move in 2016.

The defender managed to establish himself as a first-team regular at Freiburg.

The Turkey international scored one goal in 30 appearances for Freiburg in all competitions this season.

Turkey take on Iran on Monday 28 May followed by a trip to Switzerland to face Tunisia on 1 June and finally Russia on 5 June, in Russia.
