Cengiz Under Justin Kluivert Roma TEAMtalk

Everton and West Ham have joined the list of list of clubs battling to sign Roma winger Cengiz Under, according to a report.

The 22-year-old reportedly has interest from a number of clubs including Manchester United and Tottenham.

United are keen as they search for a right winger this summer – and perhaps a cheaper alternative to Jadon Sancho.

According to AreaNapoli, however, Roma are offering Under around to several clubs, Borussia Dortmund among them.

Roma posted over €200million in debt last month and they face an uphill battle to raise funds through Champions League qualification for next season.

Dortmund have rejected the offer but there are potential openings at Everton and West Ham.

The report claims the Hammers’ chase for Under hinges on them staying in the Premier League this season; David Moyes’ side sit outside the relegation zone on goal difference.


Everton are keen given former Napoli boss Carlo Ancelotti’s knowledge and expertise of Serie A.

In any case, however, Roma want €35million for their Turkish international. Napoli are also keen and are ready to make a starting bid of €25million.


Another Roma star reportedly offered around is Justin Kluivert.

Reports claim Arsenal want the Dutch international and could conduct a swap deal involving Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

Mkhitaryan has enjoyed his loan spell at Roma this season and could be a cheap, permanent acquisition for the Italian club.

Roma are also yet to finalise United loanee Chris Smalling’s future. The defender has also enjoyed his time with Roma this term and wants a permanent move.
