Caglar Soyuncu

The season might only be a few weeks old but already clubs across Europe are plotting for the January transfer window.


Manchester City is eyeing up Leicester City center-back Caglar Soyuncu. Pep Guardiola looks to bolster his defensive options following injuries to Aymeric Laporte and John Stones.

As a result, Fernandinho and Nicola Otamendi played as his central defensive partnership.   

the 23-year-old Turkey international arrived from SC Freiburg in August 2018. He never made his breakthrough into the first team until this season after Harry Maguire’s departure to Manchester United.

Leicester City received £80m for Maguire. Instead of investing in a replacement, Soyuncu has stepped into the void and won plenty of plaudits for his performances in the Premier League.

The center-back’s displays have caught the attention of Manchester City which is looking forward to strengthening that area of the pitch.

Soyuncu has proved himself able to work the ball out from the back without gifting the ball to the opposition forwards or playing ludicrous square passes to invisible teammates.

He cost Leicester City £19m in the 2018 summer. So, he won’t come out cheaply.

Any move for Soyuncu would not likely come to fruition until next summer. Nevertheless, he could turn up to be a long-term partner for Laporte in defense.

Pep cannot help himself when it comes to full-backs. In respect to that, City may also move for Hearts’ Aaron Hickey.

The 17-year-old has been one of the few bright spots in an underwhelming start to the season for the Scottish Premier League side.

More Interests

Southampton as well having a nose around Tynecastle, though, and may be able to give the youngster more regular playing time if he headed to the South Coast.

Manchester United is looking forward to get themselves Dembele. One of the most popular objects in modern football.

Consequently, Old Trafford scouts are monitoring Dembele’s performances. They have also written glowing reports to slide across the desk to Solskjaer having watched him score in the 2-2 draw at Brest.

The Lyon forward is Ligue 1 top scorer with six goals in six games. Solskjaer may be tempted into making a sizeable bid for him in the winter transfer window. This after he failed to replace Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez in the summer.

Newcastle has been scouting Luke Matheson for the past year. Now that he scored against Man United, they may be tempted to throw in a bid for the 16-year-old.

Crystal Palace may as well try to lure Shakhtar Donetsk defensive midfielder Taras Stepanenko to salubrious Selhurst Park with an £8m bid in January.
