Arsenal wants winger despite his poor Premier League loan spell

Arsenal is one of the teams linked with a move for Cengiz Under despite his poor loan spell from AS Roma at Leicester City this season.

The Turkey international joined the Foxes in the summer as they looked to maintain a solid campaign in Europe and break into the Premier League’s top four.

One of his highlights of the season was playing just 16 minutes, yet providing the assist for Leicester’s goal in their 1-0 win over Arsenal at the Emirates.

His season has been plagued by injuries and time spent on the bench in a loan deal that Leicester shouldn’t consider extending for another campaign.

Although he didn’t shine at Leicester who had the option of signing him permanently, TuttoMercatoWeb, via The Mirror says Arsenal is interested in his signature.

The Gunners will bolster their team in the summer and he is thought to be one player they want to sign.

AS Roma is open to cashing in on the 23-year-old. They had agreed on a fee of around £22million with Leicester if the Foxes wanted to make his move permanent.

But the report says they are willing to accept £17.2million for his signature, a fee that should be okay for Arsenal to pay.

    looks like we’re pushing for another oft-injured and Under-whelming player…I know there’s been some recent chatter suggesting that instead of us offering retirement packages to ex-Chelski castaways that we should try to shift our focus towards those teams who have clearly fared better in the transfer/recruitment market, but we still need to do our due diligence…first “the injury waiting to happen” Sander Berge and now this constantly depreciating asset since 2018…hopefully just another rumour in the night…just can’t fathom the notion of taking on any player that can’t seem to stay healthy considering our incredibly spotty history, regardless of the “potential” of these two relatively young footballers

    I hope this is just silly season stuff. From what I’ve seen of him the guy is just too inconsistent. Something like Auba without the goals.

    Sack Edu
    He’s corrupt

  4. Oba says:

    No way arsenal will buy him, I hope Arteta and Edu knows that any wrong signing and the squad underperform next campaign, the fans will turn against them, I guess these are Agent stunt because every agent knows that arsenal have this clout that once u link arsenal to their client, buyer will come whether their client is good or not.

  5. SM says:

    Why do we need another wide player? We have Pepe, Saka, ESR (when Odegaard plays), Auba (often plays on the left) and Willian who unless we give him away will never leave. Just stop all this nonsense and get Bissouma in with a decent RB, and back up LB for Tierney.

  6. Sean Williams says:

    The guy is bog poor. Someone is making this up.

  7. Junior says:

    Edu is doing nonsens if he completes this stupid thing.
