'Only Liverpool have the power' to sign one of Barca's main transfer targets

From AS today, the Spanish publication, who are running a story claiming that Leicester City defender Caglar Soyuncu is one of Barcelona's main summer targets.

According to the central defender's agent, although there's no hint that we're interested, we're the only club in England capable of signing the player.

It sounds an awful lot like a rather large hint to us that they'd like us to move for him. Either way, the player's agent - Mustafa Dogru - said: "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."

It's increasingly likely that Dejan Lovren will be moving on in the summer, meaning that there will be a spot in Liverpool's squad for a fourth central defender. Unless a younger prospect is lined up, Liverpool are really going to need cover in that area for next season.
