Arsenal win race for ace defender

Soyuncu, 21, has impressed this season in the Bundesliga after moving to Germany from Turkish second-tier side Altinordu in 2016 for a fee of €2.65 million.

Freiburg director Jochen Saier has responded to rumours that Caglar Soyuncu is on the verge of joining Arsenal.

Freiburg defender Caglar Soyuncu is all set to join Arsenal, according to the president of the player's parent club.

Speaking at the International Football Economic Forum, as reported by Goal, Ozkan said: "Caglar Soyuncu is set to join Arsenal". "Arsenal asked for his youth information from us".

But with Freiburg in danger of relegation, the 21-year-old may be wanting to test himself at a bigger club. We'll earn from him, if he joins Arsenal.

"Ozkan can know little about the overall scenario", he told Bild.

Arsenal now have the services of Per Mertesacker, Laurent Koscielny, Calum Chambers, Shkodran Mustafi and Konstantinos Mavropanos as the first choice centre-backs at the club. This is total nonsense.

'Bayern Munich wants him too, but he's on the way to the Premier League'.

The Evening Standard claim Arsenal are interested in young defenders having signed Konstantinos Mavropanos in January.

The Gunners missed out on a place in the Champions League for next season after they were beaten by Atletico Madrid in the Europa League semi-finals.
