Leicester have agreed on a deal, in principle, to sign Roma’s Cengiz Under on loan with an obligation to buy him next summer, as per a report from The Guardian.
Brendan Rodgers’ side will pay £24.6m at the end of the season for the Turkish international who scored three goals in Serie A last year.
Rodgers has been in the market for a winger, having failed to attract Trincao from Barcelona.
The loan to buy deal is seemingly a mark of the way the club will do their business in what are currently difficult financial circumstances.
The 23-year-old joined Roma from Istanbul Basaksehir after impressing in his homeland, however, things haven’t gone exactly to plan for Under and he will be looking to kickstart his career once more.
Having made 26 Serie A appearances in each of his first two seasons, Under made just 18 league outings last term and now the Italian giants are hoping to cash in.
A talented youngster with plenty of tricks and skills who will add creativity to a Foxes side already boasting an abundance of forward-thinking players.
Rodgers will be delighted to get Under in at the King Power Stadium and will hope with the help of the rest of the squad he can get the best out of the winger.
