Barcelona are interested in Leicester City defender Caglar Soyuncu according to Don Balon.

The Spanish publication claims that Barca have added Soyuncu to their shortlist as a possible replacement for Gerard Pique.

Soyuncu has impressed for the Foxes this season after breaking into the first team following Harry Maguire being sold to Manchester United for £70m.

The Turkey international looks up to Carles Puyol as his idol and is a powerful defender who is also quick and capable on the ball.

Soyuncu is a ball-playing defender with an impressive passing range.

The Foxes would not let him leave on the cheap considering he has another three-years remaining on his contract.

Don Balon claim that Soyuncu could be worth €55m – which would make him the most expensive Turkish transfer in history.

La Liga is currently suspended due to coronavirus disruptions like the Premier League. Neither league have set a return date and it is uncertain whether the delay will have an impact on the transfer season period.
