ARSENAL are in talks to sign Freiburg defender Caglar Soyuncu, according to the player’s agent.
But the Gunners face competition from Premier League rivals for the 22-year-old’s signature.
New Arsenal boss Unai Emery is keen to bolster his ranks this summer after succeeding Arsene Wenger at the Emirates.
The Gunners have made just one signing so far with veteran defender Stephan Lichtsteiner leaving Juventus for the Premier League.
Soyuncu’s agent, Mustafa Dogru, has revealed Arsenal are in talks with the centre-back who is valued at £35m.
“Sven Mislintat has been keen on Caglar since he was at Borussia Dortmund. He first scouted him back in Germany,” he told Turkish Football.
Sven is interested in Caglar, there are concrete talks, all that remains is for a fee to be agreed. We will see what happens next.
“What I will say regarding the Liverpool link is that there were four to five Premier League clubs scouting him over the international break.
“There are four Premier League sides who’ve made a move for Soyuncu, that we are in talks with.”
New Arsenal boss Emery has been linked with a number of players since taking over from Wenger.
