Leicester City in talks with Roma to sign Cengiz Under

Leicester City are in talks to sign Cengiz Under from Roma, according to Gianluca Di Marzio.

The Turkey winger has been linked with Napoli as a counterpart in the proposed deal for Arkadiusz Milik.

But Leicester have swooped in with an offer that could satisfy Roma: a loan with an obligation to buy.

There is no agreement yet, but talks are progressing well and the deal could be closed within hours.

Under was in and out of the Roma side last season, making 18 Serie A appearances and three in Europe.

The 23-year-old rejected Manchester City to join Roma in 2017 and caught the eye in his first season with the Giallorossi.

Under wasn’t at his best last season though, leading to Roma entertaining offers for him.

Cagliari have also shown interest in the talented Turk, but Leicester now seem to be in pole position.

18:00 UPDATE:

The clubs have now reached an agreement and Under will soon undergo his Leicester City medical.
