Arsenal are moving ahead of rivals Tottenham in pursuit of Roma sensation Cengiz Under.
Italian sources say the Gunners had scouts watching him score a thunderous equaliser in the Italian side’s 2-2 draw with Inter Milan.
Turkish outlet Aksam claims the Gunners have already had a £26m offer snubbed
Football Italia reported Arsenal’s scouting mission and also noted how Under will cost as much as €50 million since he’s contracted to I Giallorossi until the summer of 2022.
The hefty asking price may not deter Arsenal, though, after the way Under thrived against Inter. He scored his team’s first equaliser via a thunderous long-range shot six minutes into the second half.
Roma paid an initial €13.4m to İstanbul Başakşehir for the 21-year-old and could see a healthy return when they do eventually decide to sell.
Under previously played for Altinordu and the club’s president Mehmet Ozkan claims Bayern Munich are another side who are following his progress, with the need to freshen up their squad.
