The Gunners have lost Per Mertesacker to retirement while Laurent Koscielny faces a lengthy absence with an achilles injury and speculation continues to orientate around the future of Germany international Shkodran Mustafi.
One man widely linked with a move to Arsenal is highly-rated Freiburg defender Caglar Soyuncu and the Turkey ace has now issued an update on his future, quoted by Turkish Football, stating he’ll discuss a potential exit after the international break.
“I had a great season. We are thinking about taking that next step up. However, I told my agent and my club that I want to talk about my future after the international break. My future will be decided after the national team games.”
Capped nine times by his national side, the 22-year-old is expected to feature against Iran, Tunisia and Russia in the coming weeks but won’t be at the World Cup after his nation failed to qualify.
