Leicester City are hoping to finish a transfer for AS Roma winger Cengiz Under so as to add a brand new size to their assault, supervisor Brendan Rodgers has stated.
Under has scored 17 targets and supplied 12 assists in 88 video games throughout all competitions for Roma after his arrival from Istanbul Basaksehir in 2017.
“He’s a very, very good player. There have been negotiations with the club and we’re hopeful there,” Rodgers advised newshounds forward of Sunday’s Premier League conflict towards Burnley.
“We need a different kind of attacking player to help out at the top end. Having watched him, he’s clearly a talented player. It’s clear we have pace and power, but I feel we need more football in there.”
“We need someone who can beat someone in a one-v-one, we need someone who can break down defences who are organised, when it’s tight. That’s the profile we’re looking at.”
Rodgers showed that James Maddison, who returned from a hip harm right through the second one part of Leicester’s 3-Zero victory towards West Bromwich Albion, is in line to start out on Sunday, however Ricardo Pereira might not be to be had for no less than every other month because of a knee harm. )
