As Italian website Calcio Mercato writes about the future of Cengiz Under, Premier League sides Leicester City and Newcastle United are pointed out as potential destinations.
The report starts by saying that even though the winger was expected to leave Roma this summer, he’s now seen as nearly non-transferable.
Under came close to moving to Napoli, but the deal collapsed partly of because his many demands, and then due to injury issues which led Roma to freeze the operation. He ended up doing pretty well at the start of the Serie A season, and convincing the Giallorossi he deserves to stay.
Calcio Mercato points out that the club must be careful with the ‘English sirens’ which may return for him.
It’s said an approach from Leicester City ‘is expected’, even though the Foxes are ‘reluctant’ to pay over €23m for the player. Meanwhile Newcastle would be more interested in a loan deal.
Neither of these offers would be enough to take Under from Roma, especially because the club would only let him go for more than the €25m which Napoli wanted to pay for him. So Leicester and Newcastle would have to present something more attractive.
