Perfect Van Dijk partner found as Liverpool set to win race for Premier League star Soyuncu?
Liverpool look set to win the race for Leicester City centre-back Caglar Soyuncu, according to reports from Spain. AS claim.
Liverpool are still waiting to find out if they will be handed that Premier League title that they fully deserve, but that has not stopped Jurgen Klopp lining up a possible of signings that will improve the side.
Liverpool fc may have one of the best defences in Europe right now, and have the best centre-back on the planet in the shape of Virgil Van Dijk, but Klopp knows that he needs to add another top-class defender to that back-line.
Now Spanish website AS claim Liverpool are all set to win the race to try and sign the impressing defender during the summer transfer window.
Arsenal have been linked with a move for Soyuncu over the past few windows, but it seems that he is not interested in a move to London as his agent has opened up up and claimed that Barcelona and Liverpool are the only two sides that Soyuncu may be interested in.
Dogru revealed: “It is possible Caglar can go to play for Barcelona this summer.
“Barca already wanted to sign him when he played for Altinordu.
“We negotiated with them and they presented a project, but we thought that he should go to a team where he would be a permanent starter for him to develop properly. For this reason, we decided to accept the Freiburg proposal.
“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 is a very good defender that is now ready for the top of the game, so Leicester will do very well in the summer to keep hold of one of their best players.
It will be interesting to see just whom he would choose if both Liverpool and Barcelona came calling, as both are two of the best sides in the game and both are in need of adding another defender to their impressive squads.
