The 20-year-old, who joined Freiburg from second division Turkish side Altinordu in the summer, has impressed in his 16 outings for the club this season.
And his talents have not gone unnoticed with Soyuncu's agent Mustafa Dogru confirming earlier this week that Manchester City had been in contact over a move for the Turkish international.
"Manchester City have made contact to us through a third party," said Dogru.

"Caglar is the type of defender that suits Pep Guardiola’s style and his goal is to play Premier League football but he is focused on Freiburg until the end of the season."
"I admire Jose Mourinho, not just his football but his philosophy," said Soyuncu.
