Arsenal are moving quickly to improve their defence this summer and Freiburg’s 35m pound-rated defender Caglar Soyuncu is close to becoming the Gunners’ next signing.
The Turk’s agent confirmed talks are progressing well between the two clubs and a deal looks increasingly likely.
The 22-year-old is regarded as one of the best young defenders in the Bundesliga, having made 55 appearances since joining Freiburg in 2016.
His performances have seen him linked with a move away from Germany and the Gunners’ head of recruitment, Sven Mislintat, has long been an admirer.
Soyuncu’s agent Mustafa Dogru told Turkish Football: “Mislintat has been keen on Caglar since he was at Dortmund.
Arsenal have already added veteran right-back Stephen Lichtsteiner to their ranks after he signed from Juventus on a free transfer.
The Gunners are also understood to be interested in Sampdoria midfielder Lucas Torreira and a deal for Dortmund’s Sokratis Papastathopoulos should be finalised soon.
