Arsenal are in talks with Freiburg over the transfer of Caglar Soyuncu.
The Turkish centre-half joined the Bundesliga side from Altınordu F.K in 2016, and has impressed during his spell there.
He’s a player familiar to the Gunners new Head of Recruitment, Sven Mislintat, and would become the German’s second ‘find’ if the deal goes through.
The former Borussia Dortmund man was responsible for identifying young Greek defender Konstantinos Mavropanos who joined the club in January.
Initially earmarked for a loan move, he stayed and had two impressive performances towards the end of the season before making himself a true Arsenal man with a straight red card against Leicester.
Media reports around Soyuncu have suggested a fee of €35m, but with a restricted budget this summer and the need to bolster more than one position, it would be a surprise if Arsenal were to pay that much.
The 21 year made 28 appearances for Freiburg last season, scoring once, as well as picking up one yellow card and one red card.
Whether it goes through or not remains to be seen, but we know there are talks between the clubs so we’re giving this one a pretty low rating on our Poo-o-Meter.
