In the modern world of football, the transfer season lasts year-round. While the literal transfers of players take place in the winter and summer windows, rumors, speculation and even concrete agreements can happen any time.
According to the football transfer rumours in British media, Tottenham have entered talks with Roma for Cengiz Under.
The Turkey international joined Roma from Başakşehir for a fee in the region of 13.4 million euros in July 2017. His contract expires in the summer of 2022.
Under made 44 appearances across all competitions for Roma, scoring 11 goals and supplying 7 assists in return.
He is 21-year-old and has his peak years ahead. Cengiz Under has also scored 4 goals in 15 games for his country.
Mauricio Pochettino has always been a manager who keeps his eyes on the most talented young players across the globe.
Tottenham have built a reputation for recruiting young talent from within Europe, predominantly targeting those with sell-on value and immense potential.
Pochettino is a long term admirer of Under and believes he can get the most out of the Turkey international.
According to Teamtalk (via RAI Sports), “Tottenham have contacted Roma over a huge club record bid for winger Cengiz Under. The Turkey forward hasn’t been at his best this season, but that has not stopped an army of admirers expressing their interest in the 21-year-old star. Barcelona, Arsenal and Bayern Munich have all been mentioned as potential suitors over the past few weeks, but RAI Sports claims Tottenham lead the charge after launching a €60m offer to acquire his services in January.”

Roma are not in a position where they need to sell and would like to keep hold of the winger, but right offer may force the club to consider a deal.
