Freiburg star Caglar Soyuncu has confirmed he hopes to join Arsenal this summer.

The Turkey international has been identified by Arsenals head of recruitment Sven Mislintat and at 22 years of age the Gunners believe there is value in Soyuncu at £35m.

The Gunners completed the signing of Bernd Leno this week with the goalkeeper joining Stephan Lichsteiner as Unai Emerys first signings at the club.

Emery wants to complete as much as his transfer business as possible before pre-season and Soyuncu has confirmed he wants to move to the Gunners.

I hope I go to Arsenal, said Soyuncu.

I really want to play in the Premier League, but everything depends on the team.

I received bids from some of the teams in Turkey. I would not be able to give the team a name, but I did not accept it.

I do not think about playing in Turkey at the moment. I want to continue my career in Europe, but of course, we do not know what will happen in the future.
