Arsenal are keenly interested in Freiburg defender Caglar Soyuncu’s signature and they have already made an official move towards getting him in the summer.
The Turkey international was lively at the back of the pitch for the Bundesliga side throughout the just concluded season, helping the team to avoid being relegated to the lower League.
According to Altinordu’s president Mehmet Okanagan, the 21-year-old is set for a switch to the Emirates Stadium this summer. Altinordu was Soyuncu’s first club during the early stage of his career before he was sold to Freiburg in 2016.
While reacting to the unending rumours linking him to Arsenal, Soyuncu confessed that he is yet to make any decision over his future despite being heavily linked with a move to the Gunners.
However, the 21-year-old revealed he would make his decision known to the public in two weeks’ time. “It is too early to say right now, but everything will be clear within the next one-two weeks,” Soyuncu said report Turkishfootball.
He is presently rated as one of the best defenders in the German League and that has seen his price tag risen up to £35m, according to Transfermarkt.
Meanwhile, Turkish second tier side Altinordu are reportedly going to receive £9m should the Gunners successfully push through in their desire to capture the Turkey international.
With the Gunners set to unveil Unai Emery as the new boss, Soyuncu might be the Spaniard’s first signing as Arsenal boss in the summer.
