Caglar Soyuncu has been a man left in the shadows after arriving at Leicester City last summer. He struggled to get into the side and even a change of manager from Claude Puel to Brendan Rodgers failed to help his cause.
The Turk arrived at the club as a hugely promising centre-back but his stock has decreased since he moved to the Premier League. He’s currently rated at £16.2m per Transfermarkt after an initial £19m move last year.
Le10 Sport claimed last month that Monaco had shown an interest in the player and now with the transfer window open, Leicester fans have been debating the future of the 22-year-old.
On Twitter, a poll was posted which saw 47% of people voting to see him remain as a squad player.
What would you do this summer with Çaglar Söyüncü? #lcfc

Below the post, supporters gave a mixed verdict on the 22 cap defender as one individual claimed he clearly had the talent. Another hinted that Soyuncu needed a period of games to bed in.
A further fan urged the Foxes to use him in a deal to bring Youri Tielemans back to the King Power permanently. The Belgian has only just recently returned to Monaco following his loan spell.
Here’s the best of the debate.
I’d personally like to know why people are wanting him to be sold because he’s not good enough! He took a bit of time to adjust to English football, but he’s been fine every time he’s played.

Depends if Maguire stays or goes, and if Rodgers brings back Benkovic from on loan or sends him back out

Play as a squad player or loan to another PL club

Offer him (Season loan) and Adrien Silva (permanent) plus £22m for Tielemans? Jardim should be able to develop him.

Hes barely had a chance, all players need to have a few consecutive games to bed in

Personally, keep him as a squad player. Yes, he’d be 4th/5th choice, but it’s important to have a number of players in that position for cover. Besides, he’s shown numerous times that he’s got talent. Needs to show it more though, clearly.
