Arsenal are reportedly leading the race to sign AS Roma winger Cengiz Under when in the January transfer window.
It’s no secret that the Gunners are looking at ways to improve their wide options as they’ve been linked with moves for the likes of Ousmane Dembele, Leon Bailey and Cristian Pavon over the past six months, while the Mirror report that Rennes’ Senegal international Ismaila Sarr also has admirers at the Emirates Stadium.
At previous clubs, head coach Unai Emery was blessed with an abundance of natural wide players, but at Arsenal those areas are currently filled with players who would prefer to operate centrally.
Mesut Ozil has been used on the right-wing with Aaron Ramsey operating in the no.10 role, while centre-forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has pushed out to the left when Alexandre Lacazette has started.
So are Emery and head of recruitment Sven Mislintat planning to finally sign a winger when transfer window reopens in the new year?
