Leicester City could be in line to sign Cengiz Under on a permanent deal after Corriere dello Sport have reported that AS Roma ‘hope’ that they can sell him.
As per the news outlet, the East Midlands club exerted the option to take him on loan for the 2020/21 term for €3m, with the further option to buy for €23m, equating to a total of €26m (£22.3m) should they wish to sign him permanently.
However, the Italian publication also claim that it would be ‘difficult’ for Brendan Rodgers’ team to exert this option, although it has not been ruled out.
Leicester should not give up on Under
The Foxes should not give up on Under just yet, despite his rather tame return for them. The Turkey international has only managed to score a mere two goals and make a further three assists in 19 games in total over all competitions so far this season (Transfermarkt), and would surely have been hoping for better numbers.
However, at just 23 years of age, the winger still has a lot of potential and is a more than feasible squad option for LCFC to have.
Should Leicester sign Under?
He has even earned the highest of praises from footballing legends Francesco Totti and Christian Vieri, which should not go unnoticed.
Nonetheless, Under is a player that Leicester should be considering signing on a permanent basis if they are not already thinking of doing.
