Manchester United are showing an interest in Leicester City centre-back Caglar Soyuncu, according to a report on Sunday.
Soyuncu’s Leicester stint
Caglar Soyuncu joined Leicester City in August of 2018 from German outfit SC Freiburg.
The centre-back is believed to have set the Foxes back just over £19m.
Since moving to England, Soyuncu has firmly cemented himself as a key cog in Leicester’s backline.
All told, the centre-back has notched 82 appearances across all competitions, playing a key role in the Foxes securing Europa League football two seasons in a row.
Soyuncu of interest to Man United
Now, though, the 25-year-old appears to be attracting the interest of Manchester United.
It is no secret to regular watchers of the English game that United are lacking quality at centre-half.
Outside of Harry Maguire, the Red Devils only real have Eric Bailly, who is rather injury prone, and Victor Lindelof, who is pretty unreliable, as centre-back options.
So, their reported interest in Soyuncu, who is still fairly young and has already impressed in the Premier League, makes a fair bit of sense.
According to journalist Ekrem Konur, as Man United continue their search for a centre-back, they have put Soyuncu on their transfer list.
It is added that talks with Leicester City are scheduled to take place soon.
No potential fee is mentioned by Konur, but it is hard to envision Leicester letting the Turkish international go on the cheap.
