The 2016 English Premier League champion Leicester City is closing on a deal to sign Freiburg central defender Çağlar Söyüncü.
The Turkish international's agent Mustafa Doğru confirmed the negotiations on his transfer in a statement Wednesday.
Leicester is looking to strengthen its line of defense ahead of the new season and believes the 22-year-old would be perfect for the role.
Söyüncü played 50 games in Bundesliga since joining the German side from Altınordu in 2016 for 2.65 million euros ($3.07 million).
The Izmir-born player, who earned 15 caps for Turkey, will reportedly cost the Foxes 22.2 million euros ($25.7 million).
Having played nearly 100 official matches in his profession career, Söyüncü is regarded as one of the most promising central defenders in Europe.
