Both the clubs are looking for an attacking player in January transfer window. According to recent reports, Arsenal are ready to battle with Manchester United for this Roma player.
Arsenal registered it’s 11 consecutive win in all competitions this season by defeating Sporting Lisbon 1-0. With 11 wins in a row, it seems Arsenal have successfully laid the ground work of new boss Unai Emery. Arsenal are only two points behind league leaders Manchester City in the Premier. However, they still lack a winger. According to recent report, Arsenal are ready to battle with Manchester United for this Roma player.
The Gunners and Manchester United are readying bids for Roma star Cengiz Under. Recent reports in Italy suggest that the Emirates Stadium side will battle with Manchester United for Turkish international Cengiz Under. The Turkish international is hot property in the transfer market. Under has excelled at Roma since joining the club in the summer of 2017. Under is constantly improving at Roma and enjoyed a good first season in Italy. He scored eight goals and provided two assists in 32 appearances.
Manchester City and Barcelona are also tracking Under, but Arsenal have been monitoring the Turkey international since his days at Super Lig side Basaksehir. Corriere Dello Sport claim Roma are prepared to sell Under, but are demanding €50m for the 21 year old. It seems Unai Emery and Jose Mourinho are ‘ready’ to meet Roma’s asking price. Manchester United Jose Mourinho is desperate for more options on the wing, having deployed strikers Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford on the flanks for much of the season so far.
Under operates on the right wing, and United are reportedly keen to cash in on Alexis Sanchez despite the Chilean only arriving at Old Trafford in January. The Turkish international already has three goals and four assists in ten games this season so far.
It’s interesting to see whether Arsenal will meet Roma’s price tag. Arsenal are not willing to spend that much amount of money, given their tight financial budget. So they may lose to Manchester United, if Jose bids for Under. Manchester United are in a dire need of an attacking player, none of their forwards are scoring goals consistently this season.
