According to the 22-year-old’s agent, Mustafa Dogru, the Gunners’ head of recruitment Sven Mislintat has actually held talks with Dortmund over a possible move for Soyuncu.
“Sven Mislintat has been keen on Caglar since he was at Borussia Dortmund,” Dogru said.
“He first scouted him back in Germany.
