The Turkish defender is still a relatively unknown commodity, but is starting to make a name for himself in Germany with Freiburg.
Having signed for the club two years ago from TFF 1.League side Altinordu, Söyüncü has become a crucial part of the Bundesliga side’s backline, making 27 appearances for them this season, while also managing to nick a goal in the process.
His performances have earned him admirers from some of the biggest clubs in England, with both Arsenal and Manchester City reportedly showing an interest.

Altinordu boss, Huseyin Eroglu, recently confirmed the pair’s interest during an interview with Futbol Arena amid the Izmir Cup, an U-12 tournament organized by the club.
He also added Manchester United’s name to list of destinations the starlet could end up going to, and spoke glowingly about the youngster’s potential to become one of the best defenders on the continent.
Eroglu said: “I think Caglar will go to England at the end of the season. He came from our own academy and is now doing well in the Bundesliga. For me, he’ll go to Manchester United or Manchester City at the end of the year and be one of the best defenders.”
Altinordu also inserted a clause in his contract when he signed for Freiburg, stating that they are entitled to earn around 30% from the fee of his next transfer.
