Arsenal could return for Leicester target and it is not Maddison

Arsenal is interested in a move for Leicester City defender, Caglar Söyüncü, as they continue their rebuild.

Transfermarketweb says the Gunners have been monitoring him for years before he moved to Leicester City.

The Foxes pipped them to his signature and he has been thriving in the Premier League.

Although he is at a competitive club, Arsenal hasn’t given up on signing him, and the report says they could make a January move for him.

The defender’s current deal expires at the end of next season and it remains unclear why he hasn’t been given a new one.

This could play to the advantage of Arsenal, who may pounce to sign him in a cut-price deal.

Leicester signed him for £18 million from Freiburg in 2018 and the report says Arsenal could even double that figure to convince the Foxes into selling him.

At 25, he could still offer the Gunners several years of active football and would be a strong competition for Ben White, which would help the Englishman to play at his best always.

Arsenal’s defence has looked solid recently, but a reliance on White and Gabriel Magalhaes means they could be one injury to either of them away from a defensive crisis.

    I see no reason why Soyuncu should leave Leicester for Arsenal. NON STORY.

      How many CBs could we possibly buy? I keep seeing links to more. We need a forward first and foremost but this was beyond obvious 6 months ago

    it’s hard not to think that the primary reason behind these seemingly nonsensical articles regarding us acquiring another CB is based on a general consensus amongst the punditry that Saliba will never don the Arsenal kit under our current manager…of course, I hope that’s not the case, but it does make me wonder

    He is a good player and would be a fine back up to White and Gabriel. We should have atleast 3 proper, ready to start defenders, given injuries and suspensions. We might have to sell either Holding or Mari or both to get him. That said will he leave Leicester for Arsenal. They seem to be doing better than Arsenal for the last 2 seasons, although we definitely are a bigger club than Leicester.

    Just pie in thr sky nonsense as so many false rumours are on JA. We have SALIBA and unlike many pessimists and poor judges, I believe we will definitely have him back next season and he will become a key defender.

    We badly need strikers who CAN AND DO strike, which rules out Auba, Laca and all the current strikers at the club.

    It is beyond OBVIOUS, that out next key import will need to be a striker, NOT another CB.

    We need two effective strikers, not merely one, BTW!
