Liverpool FC have entered the race to sign Turkish defender Caglar Soyuncu but face competition from their domestic rivals Arsenal, according to a report in England.

Turkish-football.com, as quoted by the Daily Mirror, is reporting that the Reds are interested in a potential deal to bring in the Bayer Leverkusen defender to improve their options at the back.

The same article states that Liverpool FC sent scouts to watch Soyuncu during Turkey’s 1-1 draw with Russia in a friendly on Tuesday night with view to a potential swoop for the 22-year-old.\

According to the same story, the Merseyside outfit consider the Turkey international as a potential candidate to become a long-term defensive partner with Virgil van Dijk.

However, Arsenal’s head of recruitment Sven Mislintat is thought to be a big admirer of the promising centre-half.

The Daily Mirror goes on to claim that Manchester United, Manchester City and Atletico Madrid have also shown an interest in the defender in the past.

Liverpool FC finished in fourth place in the Premier League table last season to ensure their continued participation in the Champions League.

The Reds lost 3-1 to La Liga giants Real Madrid in the Champions League final in Kiev last month.
