According to Turkish Football, Chelsea have questioned AS Roma about their rising star, Cengiz Under.
Various other reports claim that Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United are also gunning for the 21-year-old’s signature. The Blues understandably will have to join the race with a concrete offer since their London rivals, Arsenal have already seen a bid worth €30m get rejected.
Under has burst into life this season with 6 goals and 9 assists in 25 appearances across all competitions. He has showcased his potential to become a star figure in the European top-flight.
As per the reports, Chelsea are currently looking at potential targets to serve as a replacement for their best player, Eden Hazard. The Belgian has been predicted to leave the Stamford Bridge this summer for the reigning European champions, Real Madrid.
While the Blues have gotten themselves a head start by signing Christian Pulisic from Borussia Dortmund this past month, they fear the loss of Champions League football for a second consecutive season will ensure Hazard’s departure from the club.
Under could be brought to also add some more dynamism to the Chelsea offensive line. In all honesty, Pedro can never be more than a decent squad player and Willian has hit his ceiling as a footballer.
