The talented Turkish winger is doing great things in the Italian capital but his future seems to be far away from Roma. Two British sides are chasing Cengiz Under.
Roma will have to work hard to convince his talented player to stay in the Italian capital. Although Cengiz Under moved to Rome only on July 16, 2017, the Turk seems to be ready for a new adventure.

The 21-year-old from Balikesir (Turkey) is now chased by several teams. Reportedly, two British sides are constantly monitoring the situation, Arsenal and Manchester City. According to the British outlet Express, the Gunners would be ready to make a serious bid already in January. Unai Emery knows that there’s high competition out there and he doesn’t want to lose the opportunity to sign the prodigious Turk.
On the other side, Manchester City seem to be ahead in the negotiations. Express also reported that Under dreams of Manchester City. Pep Guardiola‘s team is the favorite to welcome Cengiz Under in a few months.
Roma Sporting Director Monchi wants to resist until June, though. Although he could be forced to sell the player to the highest bidder, the Spaniard doesn’t want to let him go in the January transfer window. Cengiz Under is a starter in Di Francesco‘s roster. The Italian coach wants to qualify to the Champions League and the Turk is an essential player on the right offensive flank of the giallorossi.
