Report: Leicester demanding £43m for 'aggressive' ace; he is a 'real goal for Barcelona
Leicester City defender Caglar Soyuncu is a ‘real goal’ for Barcelona this transfer window, according to AS.
The publication is claiming that the Turk is seen as a centre-back who resembles Carlos Puyol in his playing style.
However, any more for the defender will cost around €50m (£43m) from interested parties.
Soyuncu enjoyed a mixed campaign with the Foxes last term. It was an injury-hit season with the 25-year-old missing a fair chunk of the year thanks to an Abductor muscle injury and Coronavirus.
As a result he made just 32 appearances, but, did help the side to victory in the FA Cup.
TBR View: Transfer interest in Soyuncu worrying despite Barcelona’s financial woes
Even amidst Barcelona’s financial woes, their transfer interest in Leicester ace Soyuncu is worrying.
The Catalan giants are still one of the biggest clubs in the world, and when you’re little old Leicester, that’s scary.
It’s well known that a lot of footballers dream of turning out for the biggest clubs in the world.
Arsenal, Tottenham and even, occasional Premier League winners Chelsea, lose players to the likes of Barcelona and Real Madrid.
Think of it like this.
Despite all his success in west London, Eden Hazard still sought a move to Real Madrid.
The Foxes aren’t even close to replicating the Blues’ trophy winning haul from the last decade.
Meanwhile, Soyuncu has improved vastly since he arrived at the King Power Stadium.
His all-around defensive and passing ability has seemingly attracted one of the biggest teams in the world.
Soyuncu had the highest pass accuracy average of any Leicester City defender to have started a game.
When a player sets his mind on a big transfer, it’s nigh on impossible to stop it.
Barcelona’s interest in Soyuncu is worrying as the Midlanders look to hold on to their prized asset.
