Fulham are lining up a summer swoop for the Atletico Madrid centre back Caglar Soyuncu, according to the Sun.

The Cottagers will need to bring in additional centre backs after Tosin Adarabioyo turned down a contract extension to leave Craven Cottage on a free transfer this summer and will reignite their long-standing interest in the former Leicester City defender, who is currently on loan at Fenerbahce.

Soyuncu, who Fulham previously tried to sign from Leicester, was a target in January, when he was made available for loan after struggling to hold down a first-team spot at Atletico. The Turkish international is likely to leave Diego SImeone’s side this summer, despite having three years on his current contract.

The Spanish giants would prefer a permanent deal but Fulham could construct a loan with a possible purchase option as they look to strengthen their defence ahead of a third consecutive campaign in the top flight.
