Tottenham Ready To Launch £31m Bid To Sign Exciting Man Utd Target
Tottenham are ready to table a £31m bid to sign Manchester United target Cengiz Under but Roma are determined to hang on to the winger for another year
The summer transfer window is in full swing and managers are working hard on their transfer targets so we’ll bring you all the latest gossip from around the globe. Today, Tottenham are ready to make their move for Man Utd target Cengiz Under…
Tottenham are ready to table a £31.5m bid to sign Manchester United target Cengiz Under but Roma are determined to hang on to the winger for at least another year, according to a report by Football London.
Under came through the youth ranks at Turkish club Altinordu and enjoyed a season at Basaksehir before earning a £10m move to Rome last summer. The 21-year-old took time to settle in Italy but found some form during the second half of the season after scoring 7 goals in his final 12 Serie A appearances.
The youngster helped Roma reach the semi-finals of the Champions League and finish third in the league while Under has also established himself at international level with 4 goals in 10 caps for the Turkish team.
His potential has alerted clubs here in the Premier League as TeamTalk claim Tottenham and Manchester United are among those to have registered their interest in signing Under this summer.
Jose Mourinho is expected to further strengthen his squad before the start of the new campaign and the United boss could be eyeing Under as a potential replacement for Anthony Martial amid speculation surrounding his future at Old Trafford.
But it’s Tottenham who’re reportedly leading the chase for Under’s signature as TeamTalk cite a report from Turkish Football that claims Spurs are ready to steal a march on Man Utd by submitting an opening £31.5m offer.
Mauricio Pochettino is yet to add to his squad this summer but he’s expected to be active during the closing weeks of the window and it seems the Argentinean coach is eyeing a big-money move for Under.
However, Tottenham could be set for disappointment as TeamTalk says Roma are determined to hang on to the exciting attacker for at least another year before potentially cashing-in in 12 months time.
We’ll have to wait and see if the likes of Spurs or Man Utd are able to change that stance over the next few weeks but Under would obviously be an exciting signing if either club was able to get a deal agreed.
