‘I want to play there’: Arsenal target makes public admission!

Arsenal’s defensive overhaul could continue with Caglar Soyuncu as he reveals his wish of playing for Arsenal

Unai Emery has started his reign at Arsenal by sanctioning a defensive overhaul. Arsenal confirmed the signing of Bernd Leno in a much-needed boost to their goalkeeping ranks. He became their second signing after securing the signatures of Stephan Lichsteiner for free.

Now, with a new goalkeeper and a full-back secured, Emery’s sights have turned towards strengthening the centre of defence. A deal for Greek international Sokratis Papastathapoulous is all but confirmed but Freiburg’s Caglar Soyuncu remains a target. The player himself has revealed his wish of turning up for the Gunners.

Speaking to Turkish outlet Gunes, Soyuncu said:

“I hope I go to Arsenal, I really want to play in the Premier League but everything depends on the team.”

“I received bids from some of the teams in Turkey. I would not be able to give the team a name, but I did not accept it.”

“I do not think about playing in Turkey at the moment. I want to continue my career in Europe, but of course, we do not know what will happen in the future.”

Soyuncu is valued at £35 million and his representatives have previously admitted that the player is close to a move to the Emirates. Sven Mislintat has been keeping a keen eye on the player for a while now and believes the 22-year-old holds good value at the price. Meanwhile, Soyuncu’s arrival could lead to Shkodran Mustafi’s departure from the club

Author’s Take

Soyuncu is a talented youngster who is on the radar on several clubs including Liverpool and Atletico Madrid. Should Arsenal succeed in securing his signatures, he will mark a big upgrade on several of their current centre-backs. Also at just 22 years of age, he could be a long-term solution to Arsenal’s defensive woes.
