Arsenal are known to be admirers of Under, having registered an interest all the way back in 2018, according to a report from the Sun.

However, it appears the Gunners are now back in the mix to land the winger. A £27m deal has been talked about by The Mail, with United thought to be eyeing Under as a cheaper alternative to Jadon Sancho.

The 22-year-old has scored just the three times this season but has drawn praise from a number of top Italian legends for his performance levels.

Indeed, Roma legend, Francesco Totti, called Under a ‘complete football player’ back in May, praising the Turkish star’s ‘crafty character’.

Arsenal could be in a position to do business with Roma as Henrikh Mkhitaryan is currently on loan there. Justin Kluivert has also been mentioned as a possible player the Gunners want from the Italian capital.

There is clearly going to be an issue with Arsenal paying big sums for players this summer. The money just doesn’t look like being there for Mikel Arteta.

However, Under is coming in at less than £30m, and in this day and age, it is a very fair fee indeed.

Of course, you’d be paying for potential. His stats aren’t exactly blistering or standout but there is a player there.

Not many people impress Francesco Totti. So, Under must be doing something right. This is the sort of signing that could be right up the Gunners’ street.
