David Seaman believes that although a top four finish is achievable for Arsenal under Unai Emery, their defence needs to be addressed.
Stephan Lichtsteiner joins Arsenal on a free transfer and becomes the first signing for Unai Emery at his new club.

Arsenal have held “concrete talks” with Freiburg about a move for centre-back Caglar Soyuncu but have yet to agree a fee, the player’s agent has said.

Mustafa Dogru told Turkish Football that Arsenal head of recruitment Sven Mislintat has been tracking Soyuncu and the Gunners are keen on a move for the 22-year-old Turkey international.

“Sven is interested in Caglar — there are concrete talks, and all that remains is for a fee to be agreed,” Dogru said.

“There are four Premier League sides who’ve made a move for Soyuncu that we are in talks with. There is also interest from Atletico Madrid in Spain and a few clubs in France, Italy and Germany.

“I’m not surprised by the interest — Caglar is a modern defender, he’s mobile, fast, dual-footed, has an excellent passing range.

“He’s tough and very physical, and I think the Premier League is ideal for a defender with his attributes.”

Soyuncu could become the second centre-back signed by Arsenal this summer, with a deal for Dortmund’s Sokratis Papastathopoulos expected to be finalised shortly.

The Gunners have also brought in right-back Stephan Lichtsteiner on a free transfer from Juventus as new head coach Unai Emery revamps a defence that struggled last season.
