Roma’s sporting director Monchi pursued Cengiz Under from Basaksehir on July 16, 2017. The 20-year-old is a very talented offensive winger who prefers to play on the right side of the field. His contract is set to expire on June 30, 2022 but likely Roma will extend it soon.

Cengiz Under also made seven appearances with his national team (Turkey) scoring three goals. In the 2017-18 campaign with Roma, the youngster made 17 appearances scoring 3 goals and one assist.
