Agent Mustafa Dogru reveals that Barcelona have showed an interest in Caglar Soyuncu, but Liverpool are considered the frontrunners to sign the Leicester City defender.

Caglar Soyuncu's former representative Mustafa Dogru has suggested that Liverpool are the only side capable of signing the Leicester City defender this summer.

The 23-year-old has successfully filled the void left by Harry Maguire in the heart of the Foxes' defence this term, leading to talk of a possible move to Manchester City.

Dogru has claimed that Barcelona have themselves showed an interest in the Turkey international, meanwhile, and Paris Saint-Germain may also be in the running for his signature.

However, it is Liverpool, who are likely to be in the market for a new centre-back at the end of the season, that are considered the frontrunners to sign Soyuncu.

"It is possible Caglar can go to play for Barcelona this summer," Dogru told Spanish outlet AS. "Barca already wanted to sign him when he played for Altinordu.

"We have negotiated with them and they have presented a project. But we think that he should go to a team where he is a permanent starter, for it to develop properly.

"I think only Liverpool have the power to sign Caglar in the Premier League because of his economic conditions, but we must not forget French teams. PSG could be a surprise."

Soyuncu, used 38 times in all competitions this season, has three years remaining on his Leicester contract.
