Caglar Soyuncu has been seen as a near-prodigy at his current club, Freiburg. The centre-back joined the club in 2016 at the age of 20 and has since made 49 appearances for the team, scoring one goal.
The Telegraph reports that an agreement will soon be met between the two clubs and that it is very likely that the Turkish international will join the Gunners after the new manager joins the club.
It looks very possible that this transfer will be the first signing of the summer for Arsenal, who desperately need to bolster their defence after a very shaky season.
The core of Arsenal’s defence has been Laurent Koscielny, aged 32, who has been the stand-in captain for the majority for the season and one of the only solid components of the Arsenal defence.
The Frenchman has recently been ruled out for 6 months leaving the North London side exposed in defence for a large portion of next season. Along with this, the retiring of Per Mertesacker and the uncertainty surrounding Hector Bellerin may leave Arsenal lacking depth at the back and in need of a new set of legs.
Soyuncu stands at an impressive 6’2 which makes him a serious threat in the air. This is an area that Arsenal have arguably struggled in for several years now and he could be the man to help the team compete in the air.
After a huge update from a sky sports reporter on Max Allegri’s chances of joining the arsenal which can be seen here, it is looking more and more likely Mikel Arteta will be the man to replace Arsene Wenger. With an unknown managerial style, there’s no way of telling how the Spaniard will affect transfers if he is the new manager.
It looks to be an exciting summer ahead for Arsenal fans, with many believing that along with the departure of Arsene Wenger there will be a huge overhaul of both players at the club. With this in mind no player should feel safe. The new manager could affect the team in any way, so be prepared for changes.
