According to Correire Dello Sport, Everton could make a ‘possible revival’ for Cengiz Under and may have to battle Napoli to procure his signature this summer. AS Roma rejected a €25m + €6 bid from the Italian outfit, but advisor Franco Baldini is hoping Everton will make an improved offer of €35m to take Under off their hands.
The 22-year-old joined Roma from Basaksehir for £12.8m in 2017 and has gone on to make 87 appearances in all competitions, scoring 17 goals with 12 assists. Under has made 22 appearances across the board this season, scoring only three goals, so his form has left a lot to be desired.
Everton have Theo Walcott, Bernard, Alex Iwobi and Richarlison who can operate out wide, but Walcott could be sold this summer, Bernard has been previously offered to Roma, Iwobi has struggled for consistency and Richarlison is now a striker.
The Blues have been linked with Everton Soares, Wilfried Zaha, Memphis Depay, Jose Callejon, Rafa Silva, Jack Grealish, Everton Cebolinha Soares, Philippe Coutinho and Jesse Lingard, but Under may be the most attainable.
As per WhoScored, the Turkish international has created 1.4 chances on average in Serie A – more than Richarlison (1.1), Iwobi (1) and Bernard (1) – so he could bring something new to the Everton attack. He’s affordable at €25m too. Time will tell.
