Roma knock back Everton bid for Under

| Monday, 03 June 2019 19comments  |  Jump to last

Everton have reportedly had a bid for winger Cengiz Under rejected by AS Roma.

Football Italia and Tutto Mercato Web, both transfer gossip sites in that country with dubious track records, were claiming that the Blues' £24m offer had been knocked back, with the Serie A side holding out for more.

Under, 21, is a Turkish international who has been with Roma for the past two seasons, scoring 10 times in 50 league appearances. He also has five goals in 18 international games.

Underwhelming to say the least, this one.

How many times does it need saying; What, another winger!

Does anyone know if he has played any other positions?

All these wingers we seem to be getting linked to are predominantly right sided (e.g. Traore, Under). If there is any truth to these rumours, perhaps Walcott is on his way out? One can only hope.

Is he a winger? Red Echo say attacking midfield

We have one Turkish player already who we are finding difficulty moving on, for some reason Turkish players don't do well in our divisions or Prem, so I would steer clear and file this Under Turkish Bunkum.

Silva has stated we are overloaded with right footed attackers so we are trying to sign a left pegger. Both players are.

Its pretty clear that a left footed winger who can score goals is on the shopping list this Summer.

I've not seen much of Under but when I have seen him he looks extremely quick and with a decent left foot able to score from range. Very young still but I think our only way of getting top class players is going to be buying them aged 20-23 (rough edges and all) and then developing and coaching them to their potential.

Under and Traore could both be interesting options though if there's any truth at all in the Malcolm rumours that is the one that would excite me the most.

Glad to see us shopping for the best young talent in europe with a sell on value until we reach the climate’s we all hope and want to self sustain the top player’s.

Great model I have ultimate faith in Brand’s and Silva’s recruitment even though I don’t rate Mina the rest have done well.

Onward’s and upward’s!

So much talk, until the club confirms any deals a done deal, Ill believe it.

Hopefully a proven clinical striker deal is being negotiated by MB and his team.

The sort of promising young talent we should be after, another suggestion for the left footed right winger would be Chiesa from Fiorentina. Great attitude, decent build physically and playing for a struggling team who right now aren't matching his level. Stepping up to Everton may be great for them.

Looks like we've under bid. But maybe just an opening gambit. I'd pay more to get rid of Walcott. We're in the season of rumours and kite flying.

This ones really come in Under the radar.

I’m not sure about this one. It will have to go under consideration for a while.

Roma have regretted letting one winger/forward leave for Merseyside, maybe they could regret letting another.

His stats are decent for a player his age, 1 in 5 at domestic level and 1 in 3 at international.

I continue to be miffed by those who repeatedly shout "another winger!"

For m it is an essential position where we need another high quality player. We have Richarlison, we have Bernard. There are question marks over Lookman. The rest are gash, and even Bernard struggles for goals.

Other thoughts: Maybe Silva still sees a striker in Richarlison.
Maybe Silva sees a more central role for Bernard, especially should Siggy ever get injured.

Also, we need options on the bench. Having young, direct players with pace and a goal threat to come off the bench would improve us no end.

So I do expect a wide forward to come in this summer.

Cengiz is the Turkish form of Genghis.

At least one person up-thread has expressed doubts as to whether Turkish players can thrive in the Premiership; but perhaps Cengiz Khan?

On the topic of nationality.

You reckon South Korean players are up for PL football? You'd proably say no, but Son is one of the best performers in the League.

Egyptians? Again, you'd say know but that Salah lad ain't doing too badly.

Also on here were told players from the Scottish league just aren't up to it, like those 2 Van Dijk and Robinson, just ain't worth the risk.

Yeah, what we need are players with 'premier league experience' Walcott.

Uninspiring link. Doesn't bring anything to the team that Vlasic hasn't already got other than youth and a decent left foot.

Would look ordinary challeging top six Premiership defenders. Compared to their pace, physicality and organisation you can minus a yard from his game. Further, nothing suggests that he has the creativity that is required to turn or boss a game. He is young though so maybe in a few years.

Has potential but as we saw last season, potential doesn't get results, or save under pressure managers.

We need someone who the top six find a nightmare to negotiate on a saturday afternoon. At 24 Million better off keeping Vlasic.

So... after his performance tonight against France, any other thoughts?
