Barcelona Interested In £32 Million Deal For Highly-Rated Premier League Defender

Barcelona Interested In £32 Million Deal For Highly-Rated Premier League Defender

Barcelona are reportedly willing to pay up to £32 million for Leicester City defender Caglar Soyuncu.

The Turkish international was one of the season's surprise packages and he was a standout performer in Brendan Rodgers' side.

Diario Sport have reported that a move to the Catalan giants could be on the cards and his former agent Mustafa Dogru has agreed.

Dogru is the man who negotiated the 24-year-old's move from Freiburg to Leciester two summers ago and he claims Barca's interest goes as far back as 2016.

"It is possible that Barcelona could sign Caglar this summer, as they wanted to sign him before he moved from [Turkish side] Altinordu to Freiburg in 2016," he told AS Sport.

"We negotiated with them back then, and they presented an interesting project.

"But we wanted a situation which guaranteed first-team football for Caglar, which is why we chose Freiburg.

"Liverpool are the only Premier League side that could sign him, but Paris Saint-Germain could also be an option."

Despite the speculation around Soyuncu's future, he revealed back in April that he has no desire to leave the King Power Stadium.

"I don't think it would be right to go somewhere right now. I'm having a good season. Above all, I still have a lot to learn," he explained.

Quique Setien is looking to overhaul his squad in the summer and up to 12 players have been transfer listed.

Marca per Sportsmole have reported that a slew of stars have been told their future lies away from the Nou Camp.

Among the players are number two goalkeeper Neto as well as defenders Nelson Semedo, Junior Firpo, Samuel Umtiti and Jean-Clair Todibo.

Of the twelve players, four of them [Todibo, Alena, Rafinha and Coutinho] have spent parts of this season on loan.

Semedo has been linked with moves to Inter Milan and Manchester City while Dembele's injury issues have mounted.

Braithwaite joined from Leganes back in February as an emergency signing after injury to Luis Suarez, with many not seeing a long-term future for the Danish international.

Coutinho has recently been linked with a loan move to Arsenal after failing to secure a permanent transfer to Bayern Munich.
