Arsenal are closing in on star defender likened to Mats Hummels.

Caglar Soyuncu, 21-year-old Turkey international has been linked with Arsenal, Bayern Munich, , Liverpool and Man City at various stages of the 2017/18 campaign.

It is believed a fee in the region of £35m is could be enough to sign the Freiburg defender and that would represent a substantial profit on the £2.5m paid to acquire his services during the summer of 2016.

But his form, coupled with his undoubted potential, warrants such a price tag.

He’s comfortable and expressive when in possession and is a proactive defender, ideal for the Premier League.

Soyuncu is also ranked in the top 20 Bundesliga centre-backs for expected goals per 90 this season, which demonstrates he is a genuine threat from set-pieces.
