Leicester City: AS Roma winger Cengiz Under attracting Foxes interest amid Newcastle United links

Leicester City: AS Roma winger Cengiz Under attracting Foxes interest amid Newcastle United links - Leicester City Transfer Rumours

According to an exclusive report courtesy of Inside Futbol, Leicester City are holding an interest in AS Roma winger Cengiz Under amid the player’s links with a loan move to Newcastle United – but it has now emerged that the Serie A side wish to sell him for around £23.7 million.

Under, who only managed 10 starts during the entirety of last campaign, got off to a good start at the Stadio Olimpico after signing from Turkish club Istanbul Basaksehir – making 26 league appearances and scoring seven goals in his debut campaign (The Sun).

However, a combination of injury issues and poor form since then has resulted in Under’s future at Roma being questioned – with a Premier League move now being touted by the media as he looks to reignite his career.

Should Leicester City sign Under for £23.7m?

This Inside Futbol exclusive claims Leicester are holding an interest in snapping up the winger, with Newcastle wanting him on loan, but the Foxes could jump ahead in the queue by offering to take Under on a permanent deal.

Indeed, Roma only want to offload the Turkey international for a fee, and they value his services at around £23.7 million – but he would he be worth the Foxes investment?

Described as a ‘complete‘ football player by none other than Roma icon Francesco Totti, Under has also amassed 21 caps at international level whilst racking up 13 Serie A goals and eight assists in three seasons (Transfermarkt).

A mixed bag with fitness issues, Under did manage to complete more dribbles on average than star Leicester midfielder James Maddison (WhoScored).

Whether or not he’s worth £23.7m is up for debate, but this report claims Leicester are taking note of his potential availability.
