Leicester City star Caglar Soyuncu’s former agent has claimed that Liverpool are the only club who can sign the defender this summer.
The Reds are expected to win the Premier League once football resumes and they recently won the Champions League as well.
They are undoubtedly one of the best clubs in the world right now and therefore the claims aren’t too surprising. However, the Liverpool have not registered their interest in the player so far.
It will be interesting to see if these claims tempt the Anfield giants to test the waters with a bid.
“It is possible Caglar can go to play for Barcelona this summer,” Dogru told Spanish sports paper AS.
“Barca already wanted to sign him when he played for Altinordu. We negotiated with them and they presented a project, but we thought that he should go to a team where he would be a permanent starter for him to develop properly. For this reason, we decided to accept the Freiburg proposal.
“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.”
Soyuncu is a quality defender who would be a great asset to Jurgen Klopp’s side. However, the likes of Van Dijk and Gomez are pretty much guaranteed starters when they are fit.
It would be hard for Caglar Soyuncu to get games initially if he moved to Liverpool. A player of his calibre won’t want to sit on the bench. He will look to play regularly as he has done so far at Leicester.
He is a key player for Brendan Rodgers’ side and he should look to stay there for now.
Soyuncu is still quite young and he needs to develop further with regular game time.
Leicester can provide him with that platform. Also, the Foxes could be in the Champions League next season and that would be a unique experience for Soyuncu if he stays at the club.
