Liverpool eyeing summer move for 23-year-old PL defender

By | August 14, 2020

Caglar Soyuncu’s former agent Mustafa Dogru has claimed that Liverpool are the only side capable of luring the Leicester City defender at the club.

The 23-year-old defender has successfully filled the void left by Harry Maguire at the Fixes defensive end this season, leading to talk of a possible switch to Man City.

Dogru has claimed that La Liga giants Barcelona have previously showed an interest in securing the services of Turkey international defender, meanwhile, and PSG may also be in the running for his services.

However, it is the Merseyside Reds, who are likely to be in the market for a new defender at the end of the current campaign, that are considered the favourites to secure the services of Soyuncu.

“It is possible Caglar can go to play for Barcelona this summer,” Dogru told Spanish outlet AS. “Barca already wanted to sign him when he played for Altinordu.

“We have negotiated with them and they have presented a project. But we think that he should go to a team where he is a permanent starter, for it to develop properly.

“I think only Liverpool have the power to sign Caglar in the Premier League because of his economic conditions, but we must not forget French teams. PSG could be a surprise.”

Soyuncu has played 38 games in all competitions this campaign, has three years left on his current deal with Leicester City.
