Tottenham Hotspur are ready to increase their offer for Arsenal transfer target Cengiz Under after seeing an opening bid rejected by the Serie A side.
Spurs are believed to have had their initial £31 million approach for the Roma forward turned down immediately, with Italians considering that offer unacceptable.
However, Corriere dello Sport claims that the North London outfit are now ready to return with an improved bid of £46 million in an attempt to prise the 21-year-old away from Stadio Olimpico.
The Turk’s performances since joining Roma last term have attracted the interest of many Premier League sides, with Chelsea also thought to be keeping tabs on the attacker.
Spurs are hopeful that their second bid will be enough for them to move ahead of their London rivals in the race for his services, although 20% of the transfer fee will go straight to Cengiz Under’s former club Istanbul Basaksehir due to a clause in his contract.
The Turkey international has scored 12 goals and created seven more in 49 appearances for Roma and Sven Mislintat is desperate to bring the winger at Emirates and considers the move for the youngster in January.
