Napoli consider Roma’s Cengiz Under to replace Callejon

Napoli have added Roma winger Cengiz Under to their list of possible Jose Callejon replacements, Gazzetta dello Sport reports.

Replacing Callejon is complicated for the Partenopei because of his tactical intelligence and attitude.

However, the 33-year-old Spaniard is coming to the end of his stay in Naples and the club are thinking about replacements.

Two names on the list are Jeremie Boga of Sassuolo and Gremio’s Brazil winger Everton, although interest in the latter has cooled.

The latest player under consideration is Cengiz Under, the 22-year-old Turkish international who has impressed at Roma.

Napoli owner Aurelio De Laurentiis has inquired about Under and Roma have valued him at €30m.

Under, signed for €13.4m from Basaksehir, has scored three times this season for Roma in 16 Serie A appearances.

During discussions about Under, Roma asked about in-demand Napoli striker Arkadiusz Milik.

Juventus have been leading the chase for the Pole, but Atletico Madrid have now made a serious approach.

Roma could only really enter the running if they lose star striker Edin Dzeko, who has been linked with Inter.

Gazzetta dello Sport also mentions Newcastle as possible suitors for Dzeko after their takeover goes through.
