Arsenal scouts were monitoring Cengiz Under during AS Roma’s win over Torino on Saturday.
A source close to the player has revealed to Turkish-Football that Arsenal scouts have been present at Roma’s games since December.
The I Giallorossi registered a 3-2 victory to move up into fourth place in the Serie A table.
However, unfortunately for the travelling Arsenal scouts, Cengiz Under was taken off after just six minutes.
The Turkey international suffered a hamstring injury which will keep him on the sidelines for at least a month. Under will miss AS Roma’s UEFA Champions League clash against FC Porto.
Under has been linked with a move away from Roma after contract talks stalled. The 21-year-old is currently one of Roma’s lowest paid senior players. The Italian side has reportedly placed a £50 million price tag on Under.
The former Altinordu star has six assists and three goals to his name after 18 Serie A games. Under has been particularly impressive in the UEFA Champions League where he has provided two assists and three goals in six games.
AS Roma are back in action on Sunday when they take on an in-form Atlanta side who have won three of their last five games.
