Arsenal beat Bayern Munich to the signing of 21-year-old defender

Soyuncu joined Freiburg from Altinordu in 2016 and is a nine-time Turkey worldwide.

Altinordu president Seyit Mehmet Ozkan has claimed Arsenal are close to signing Freiburg defender Caglar Soyuncu during an event called "Economic Situation in Turkish Football" according to Sport Witness.

The 21-year-old centre-back has had an impressive season in the Bundesliga that has also seen him linked with Bayern Munich.

The 21-year-old arrived in Germany from Turkish outfit in Altınordu in 2016. Arsenal asked us for information about youth development.

Talk of a possible summer move to Arsenal for Caglar Soyuncu has been branded "total nonsense" by Freiburg director Jochen Saier.

Freiburg chief Saier told Bild: 'Ozkan can know little about the overall scenario.

However, Saier insists no deal has been agreed for Soyuncu and says Arsenal are yet to make an approach for the Turkey global, who has won nine caps for his country. This is total nonsense. Of course, we would make a cut from the transfer if he joins Arsenal.

The Evening Standard claim Arsenal are interested in young defenders having signed Konstantinos Mavropanos in January.

In addition to this, Koscielny has suffered an injury in Arsenal's 1-0 defeat at the hands of Atletico Madrid in Spain.
