Turkey international Caglar Soyunco has officially joined the Foxes on a five-year contract but he will need to obtain his work permit before he can feature for the King Power outfits in the coming season.
The 22-year-old defender was heavily linked with a move to Emirates Stadium during Wenger’s last season as Arsenal manager but the deal didn’t push through since the Frenchman left his position as the Gunners manager.
According to the Foxes via their official site, the Turkish star rejected other offers before completing his move to the King Power outfits in a £19m deal.
The player featured in 30 matches for the Bundesliga side throughout last season but he failed to get a goal for the team, who ended the season in the 15th position.
The 15-capped Turkish star will be hoping to have an eventful spell at the King Power outfits in the coming season, though, he needs to prove that he deserves regular first-team action under Claude Puel.
Puel is currently a happy manager as he is able to prevent Harry Maguire and Jamy Vardy — who were both heavily linked with a move to Manchester United and Arsenal respectively — from leaving his team during the just concluded transfer window.
Meanwhile, Filip Benkovic also joined the Foxes on a five-year contract earlier today to end Puel’s busy involvement in the window.
As for Arsenal, the Gunners couldn’t complete their much-speculated move for Barcelona star Ousmane Dembele before the transfer window closes by 5 pm.
Emery now counts on Alex Iwobi, who is highly rated by the Spanish tactician, to provide good display and crosses from the right flank of his attacking department in the next season which begins tomorrow.
