Atletico Madrid are trying to surge ahead in their pursuit of Leicester City centre-back Caglar Soyuncu. The player has only six months remaining on his deal with the Foxes, with a renewal looking unlikely.
His form has been quite inconsistent over the last few seasons. At times, he has shown up and been indispensable to the team. But he has also been found lacking composure in many situations – and the plan for him could be to move on soon.
Caglar Soyuncu expected to move to Atletico Madrid
Atletico Madrid are trying to talk about a deal for Caglar Soyuncu in the ongoing transfer window itself. But, even if they fail to do so, the defender could be on the move during the summer transfer window as a free agent.
There seems to be a verbal agreement with the player about his future as an Atletico Madrid player. And in the coming days, talks will be held between the two clubs to work out a deal, if possible.
The 26-year-old is entering his physical peak years, and could be a very valuable asset under a coach like Diego Simeone. Perhaps a new environment could bring back his confidence that made him one of the top defenders in the division at one point during his time with Leicester.
