Arsenal Set To Renew Pursuit Of Turkish Assist King Following Injury Woes

Arsenal will begin sending scouts again to see Roma winger Cengiz Under, according to reports in Italy.

The Gunners are said to have shown interest in the January transfer window but no formal bid was made with the London club only looking at loan deals.

Under was subsequently sidelined with a muscular injury that has kept him out of action since the 3-2 win against Torino in mid-January.

However, the Turkish international is regaining full fitness, allowing Arsenal to keep tabs on him in view to a summer bid.

Under is an important first-team player for Roma, having scored six goals and provided nine assists in 25 appearances this season.

Contract negotiations have, though, stalled meaning the Serie A side may be prepared to offload the winger.

The 21-year-old will still have three years left on his current deal in the summer, but Roma are said to be keen to make a profit on the €13.4m they paid for the player two years ago.
