Soyuncu could play for Barca in the future.

Caglar Soyuncu's agent has revealed that the Leicester City star is being monitored by LaLiga giants Barcelona. Turkish defender Soyuncu, 23, has been has had a brilliant start to his career at the King Power stadium since he was signed from German club Freiburg last summer to replace Harry Maguire - who departed for Manchester United for a reported fee of £80million. Soyuncu has 28 Premier League starts to his name under Brendan Rodgers, whose side are at the brink of securing a Champions League spot. However, Centre-half's agent Mustafa Dogru claims it is possible his client could seek pastures new.

More: Barcelona have been told not to re-sign Neymar from PSG. Dogru said as the Mirror reported: “It is possible Caglar can go to play for Barcelona this summer.

“Barca already wanted to sign him when he played for Altinordu. “We negotiated with them and they presented a project, but we thought that he should go to a team where he would be a permanent starter for him to develop properly. For this reason, we decided to accept the Freiburg proposal. “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.” More: Jose Mourinho will bring silverware to Tottenham.
