Freiburg defender Caglar Soyuncu is planning transfer talks with Arsenal, who he considers “one of the most important clubs in England”.
The 21-year-old centre-back is a fan of the Premier League but has previously insisted he would only leave Germany for a guaranteed first-team spot.
The Metro reveals Arsenal have been scouting young defenders and signed Konstantinos Mavropanos in January, who made his debut in the recent 2-1 loss to Manchester United.
The president of second-tier Turkish outfit Altinordu, where Soyuncu came through the ranks, claimed earlier in May that a deal had been struck with the Gunners but the defender insists talks are yet to open.
He told Turkish publication Tumspor: “Arsenal are one of the most important clubs in England.
“I know they’re interested in me, but there’s nothing finalised yet about my transfer.
“After the national team camp we’ll have talks.”
