One of Barcelona’s sporting directors Ariedo Braida went to Italy to watch Fiorentina against Roma in Serie A. He was there to make notes and spy on Turkish forward Cengic Under, who play for Roma. Per Sky Sports, Braida paid a lot of attention to the striker, who went off after 74 minutes.
Under didn’t have his day, making an error that led to a penalty scored by Veretout of Fiorentina, in a game that ended up 1-1.
The Turk arrived at Roma as the most expensive young player sold by a Turkish club, arriving in 2017 from Basaksehir. He netted seven goals in his first season with Roma. This year he has 3 goals and five assists in 12 games.
He’s 21 and has a contract that ends in 2022. He is worth 27m euros on the transfer market.
