Chelsea have reportedly entered the race to sign Cengiz Under from AS Roma in January.
The Turkey international has been heavily linked with a departure from Serie A in recent times and according to claims from Calciomercatoweb, the Blues have emerged as potential suitors.
Fellow Premier League rivals have also been credited with a move for Cengiz and have frequently sent scouts to watch him in action all season at the Stadio Olimpico, according to Bleacher Report,
It is believed the North London club will contact the Serie A giants over a potential deal, though Roma are unlikely to sell unless an astronomical offer is made.
It’s reported that Chelsea are prepared to part with a transfer fee of €35 million in their efforts to recruit Under. Maurizio Sarri, according to the report, would also be willing to offer Andreas Christensen in a player-plus-cash deal.
Chelsea will have to act fast if they wish to nab the Turkish international, with Manchester City, Arsenal and Tottenham also keeping tabs on the 21-year-old.
Under has been making waves in Serie A since becoming one of Eusebio Di Francesco first signings in July 2017.
The Turkish international scored eight times in 32 games as Roma reached the Champions League semi-finals last season.
Roma paid Istanbul Basaksehir just less the £12m for Under and would make a tidy profit if they decide to sell.
