Chelsea have joined Arsenal in the race to sign Roma forward Cengiz Under, with the two clubs set to battle for his signature in January.

AS Roma Cengiz Under is top of his wishlist and the winger is thought to be available for a fee of around £45m.

Emery are believed to be favourites to sign the 21-year-old, beating their arch-rivals Spurs and top German side Bayern Munich to his signature.

Under has been in impressive form for Roma this season, scoring five goals and registering four assists.


Maurizio Sarri is thought to be keen on acquiring more quality in wide attacking areas, despite already having Eden Hazard, Willian and Pedro in his squad.

Bayern Munich are also in the running to sign the 21-year-old, however, seeing him as the perfect long-term replacement for Arjen Robben.

Under’s preference is the Premier League, though, which means it could be a straight shootout between Chelsea and Arsenal.

The Gunners have been tipped to sign him after a season-ending injury to Danny Welbeck left them short in attack.

There has been reports that both Manchester United and Manchester City had shown interest in Under but Turkish football writer Eren Sarigul has said that isn’t the case.

Under has a contract with Roma until the end of the 2021/22 season, so they are in no rush to sell.

Arsenal scouts have been spotted watching Under at a number of games and they were impressed with what they saw.
