Mustafa Dogru has indicated that Liverpool is the only team capable of signing the Leicester City defender Çağlar Söyüncü this summer, despite interest from others like Manchester City.
“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,” Dogru told Spanish outlet AS.
Dogru thus reported Paris Saint-Germain could also be in the running for its signature. Meanwhile, Barcelona had also previously shown an interest in the Turkey international.
“It is possible Caglar can go to play for Barcelona this summer,” Dogru added. “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.”
Soyuncu, who started 38 times in all competitions this season, has three years more on his contract with Leicester. The 23-year-old effectively filled the hole left by Harry Maguire in the heart of the Foxes’ defence this year, leading to a potential move to Manchester City.
As of now, Liverpool, which is expected to be on the lookout for a new centre back at the end of the season, is perceived to be the favourite to sign Soyuncu.
