£35m deal expected as player confirms Arsenal transfer offer

One of the Gunners’ targets in the transfer market has sent out a strong hint that his move to the Emirates stadium is likely to happen this summer.

New Arsenal manager Unai Emery has been very active in the transfer market so far, having secured deals for Stephan Lichtsteiner and Bernd Leno.

The Gunners are believed to be working on another deal to sign Caglar Soyuncu from Freiburg as well.

And following rumours of a £35m deal for the defender being close to an agreement, the player himself has also revealed that the Gunners have actually made an offer for him.

“It is true, Arsenal have made an offer,” Soyuncu said.

“I want Arsenal, God willing I will go to Arsenal or the Premier League but it all depends on Freiburg.

“I still have another three years on my contract. I received offers from teams in Turkey. I would not be able to give you a name, but I rejected them. I will not be returning to Turkey. I want to continue my career in Europe at the biggest clubs.”
