Arsenal Involved In Three Team Battle For £52m Rated Turkish Wonderkid

Arsenal and Tottenham are both keen on Roma winger Cengiz Under, according to reports in Italy.

However, the two London clubs won’t be alone in their pursuit with Bayern Munich also looking to recruit the Turkish international.

The Bundesliga side are said to be ready to pay between €50m (£43.7m) and €60m (£52.4m) for Under, who has been in excellent form at the start of the campaign.

The midfielder has scored two goals and provided four assists in just eight games, following on from a strong end to last season.

Roma are looking to tie down the 21-year-old to a contract extension to ward off potential interest from the Gunners and other clubs.

Under only moved to Italy from Istanbul Basaksehir in the summer of 2017, but his rise to prominence means a wage rise to around €2million a season is being considered.

Whether he’ll be tempted by the interest being shown in him, we shall have to wait and see.
