Turkish star a wanted man

Manchester City and Roma are battling it out for the signature of Turkish international winger Cengiz Under.

Istanbul Basaksehir vice-president Mustafa Saral has said that the club's highly-rated 19-year-old is on the verge of an important move.

Having begun his career in Turkey with Bucaspor and Altinordu before stepping up to the latter's senior side, Under moved to Basaksehir in 2016, where he scored nine goals in 43 games in all competitions last term – and helping his side to a second-placed finish in the Turkish Super Lig.

Speaking to the Anadolu Agency, Saral said: "We're delighted that two giants of world football are interested [in] our player.

"Both Roma and Manchester City wants to sign Cengiz Under. They show their willingness for this transfer [to happen].

"Roma and Manchester City have made an official offer for him. We'll probably give our decision today about our player's future."
