North London giants Arsenal have sent scouts to watch Leicester City defender Caglar Soyuncu in action for his country Turkey during their latest Euro 2020 qualifiers.
According to the Daily Mirror, Arsenal scouts were in attendance during the Euro 2020 qualifier between hosts Turkey and Iceland in Group H.
Caglar Soyuncu helped Turkey keep a clean sheet in a goalless draw at home to Iceland.
The result was enough to take Turkey through to the tournament proper next summer.
Caglar Soyuncu was on for the entire duration of the game.

The Turkish defender has been able to form a solid centre back partnership with Jonny Evans at the soul of the Leicester City defence and he has attracted the interest of Arsenal.
His partnership with Northern Ireland international Evans has propelled Leicester City to second spot on the league table with the Foxes eight points off league leaders Liverpool in the race for the Premier League title.
Earlier reports had said that the Gunners want to spend as much as £60m on Caglar Soyuncu.
He has been one of the best centre back in the Premier League this season and he has been able to step up as the replacement for Harry Maguire at Leicester City after the England international left for Manchester United this summer.
