Freiburg defender Caglar Soyuncu has submitted a transfer request to try and push through a move to England, a report claims.

Turkish-Football claim that Soyuncu has asked to leave the Bundesliga side this summer amid interest from Arsenal, and that his club will sell him for the right price.

The Turkish outlet state that a move to the Premier League is likely, but that no transfer fee has been agreed between the Gunners and Freiburg.

Arsenal are believed to have made an offer of around £35million for Soyuncu, who is desperate to get the move over the line.

“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.”
