£30m bid submitted: Arsenal on the brink of agreeing first winter signing

Roma face an uphill task in clutching the shirt of Cengiz Under when the transfer window is opened in January.

Under is on the radar of many top clubs scattered around Europe, with heavy interest pouring in especially from the Premier League.

Chelsea and Tottenham are keen to sign the midfielder who delivered impressively for Roma yesterday in their Champions League clash with Bulgarian club Viktoria Plzen on Wednesday.

Under scored the equaliser in Roma 2-1 defeat to the Bulgarian outfit yesterday.

Though, Spurs and Chelsea have been credited with interests in Under, it is Arsenal whose interest is piqueing beyond their London rivals.

Reports milling out from news outlet Football.london is claiming that Arsenal sent scouts to watch the Turkish star in Roma’s European League clash on Wednesday and have tabled a £30m bid for the winger/

Arsenal have been keeping tabs on Under since his performance for Roma this term and last season caught their eyes.

The Gunners are keen to add extra depth to their squad, and Unai Emery wants to add extra quality names to shore up his midfield.

Arsenal’s midfield is dripping with enough talents, but a move for Under still, gives them extra options to choose from should Emery want to shake up things to turn next year’s fixtures in his favour.
