Caglar Soyuncu to join Atletico Madrid on a four-year deal

Leicester City defender Caglar Soyuncu will pen a four-year deal when he joins Atletico Madrid in the summer, according to AS.

After spending the last five years with the Foxes, Soyuncu is set to leave as a free agent with his contract due to expire next month.

The defender struggled for playing minutes in his debut season at Leicester but established himself as a first-team regular in the subsequent three campaigns, winning the FA Cup in 2020.

However, Soyuncu has since fallen out of favour having started just six Premier League matches this term, although most have come over the last two months.

A subject of transfer interest from Atletico during the January window, Soyuncu will join Diego Simeone’s side in the upcoming transfer window.

With Leicester on the verge of dropping to the second tier of English football, the Foxes are expected to lose several key players.

Youri Tielemans’ contract is up in the summer, and the midfielder has not indicated any willingness to sign an extension.

Long-term admirers Arsenal could finally get their hands on the Belgian midfielder, who is also reportedly wanted by Newcastle United.

Racking up ten goals and nine assists in 28 matches, James Maddison has enjoyed another brilliant individual campaign and is expected to be on the move away from the King Power Stadium.

Maddison is not short of options, with Newcastle United and Tottenham Hotspur set to go head-to-head for his signature.

While it is probably too late at this point to prevent the exit of certain stars, Leicester will be keen to preserve their top-flight status with just two games left to play.

Dean Smith’s men visit Champions League hopefuls Newcastle in their next outing on Monday – six days before a crunch season finale against West Ham United on May 28.
