Caglar Soyuncu’s entourage Mustafa Dogru singles out Liverpool as the only Premier League side capable of acquiring the services of the Leicester City centre-back
Ever since completing his £19million move from Freiburg in 2018, Soyuncu has established himself as one of the most reliable central defenders in England’s top-flight.
The 23-year-old had been a cornerstone of Leicester’s defense this season, racking up 35 appearances in all competitions before the coronavirus pandemic halted proceedings.
Soyuncu’s impressive performances for Brendan Rodgers’ team have not gone unnoticed, with several European giants, including Barcelona, reportedly showing interest in securing his signature.
“It is possible Caglar can go to play for Barcelona this summer,” Dogru told the Spanish publication AS, as relayed by the TEAMtalk. “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.”
Liverpool have also emerged as possible suitors for the Turkey international, as Jurgen Klopp hopes to find a replacement for the outgoing centre-half Dejan Lovren.
Although Joe Gomez enjoyed a decent season playing alongside Virgil Van Dijk, the German manager believes Soyuncu could form up a formidable defensive partnership with the Dutch star.
Now, Dogru has fueled those speculations by naming the Merseyside giants the only English club that can afford to sign his client in the upcoming transfer window.
“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.”
