Arsenal fans aren’t too pleased after they were linked with a move for AS Roma attacker Cengiz Under.
According to Il Messaggero, Arsenal are among a number of European teams interested in signing the 22-year-old, including German champions Bayern Munich and North London rivals Tottenham Hotspur.
However, there is a snag in any deal with the Turkey international saying he wants to remain in Rome ‘for a very long time’ (via Il Messaggero).
Arsenal already signed two wingers in the summer transfer window with left-winger Gabriel Martinelli joining from Ituano, while right-winger Nicolas Pepe joined for a club-record fee of £72m from Lille.
Under has made more than 60 appearances for the Serie A side, scoring 15 goals and assisting a further 13 in all competitions (via Transfermarkt).
It seems the North London faithful aren’t too keen on signing yet another attacker and took to Twitter to express their dismay.
Here is a selection of tweets from Gooners:
