Liverpool and Manchester City Chase Defender for Leicester City This Summer


Despite interest from Manchester City, Paris Saint-Germain, and even Barcelona, Liverpool is the only team capable of signing the Leicester City defender Çağlar Söyüncü this summer, according to Mustafa Dogru.

23-year-old Söyüncü 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.

The player, who started 38 times in all competitions this season, has three years more on his contract with Leicester. Rumours of other clubs securing him, however, are already doing the rounds.

Dogru reported that Barcelona had previously shown an interest in Turkey international, while Paris Saint-Germain could also be in the running for its signature.

“It is possible Caglar can go to play for Barcelona this summer,” Dogru told Spanish outlet AS. “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.”

He also states that “We must not forget French teams. PSG could be a surprise.”

Nonetheless, 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:

“I think only Liverpool have the power to sign Caglar in the Premier League because of his economic conditions.”
