In his first match back at AS Roma, Claudio Ranieri enjoyed a 2-1 victory over Empoli.
Unfortunately, in his second match, on Saturday, he saw his side beaten 2-1 by SPAL.
It’s a big blow for Roma, who are currently fifth placed in Serie A. That won’t be enough to secure Champions League qualification, and outgoing transfers are all the likelier if they miss out.
Arsenal get a mention from Calciomercato when it comes to Cengiz Under. Along with Bayern Munich, it’s explained Unai Emery’s club have been making ‘moves’ for the player.
There’s been constant reports from the Italian media about Arsenal interest in Under, so Roma’s current predicament could be very interesting for the London club.
The Italian side hope to keep their youngsters Lorenzo Pellegrini and Nicolò Zaniolo, but it’s explained that even that would depend on the offers which arrive.
Should the priority be keeping those two, then that in turn would surely increase Arsenal’s chances of getting Under.
Of course, a lot would also depend on whether the Gunners qualify for the Champions League themselves.
