Basaksehir youngster Cengiz Under will join Roma ahead of Manchester City due to the promise of immediate first-team football with the Serie A side, according to the Turkey international's agent.

Under is expected to arrive in the Italian capital on Friday, his 20th birthday, to conclude a switch to Roma despite Turkish Super Lig side Basaksehir confirming City entered talks over a move for the attacking midfielder last week.

Roma subsequently joined the race and Under's representative Omer Uzun told beIN Sports Turkiye that joining Eusebio Di Francesco's first-team squad as sporting director Monchi reshapes Roma held more appeal than signing for City, who he claimed wished to loan his client to Bundesliga outfit Freiburg.

"Roma was the right project for both Cengiz Under and Basaksehir. Monchi was a big factor," he said.

"Roma wanted Cengiz to join the first team immediately. Manchester City, on the other hand, wanted to cooperate with Freiburg.

"Roma play 50 to 60 games a year. Their relentless desire to sign Cengiz was really effective."

Di Francesco is excited over the prospect of working with a player who has two goals from four senior international caps but cautioned there might be a period of acclimatisation as Under adapts to a new country and language.

"A very interesting player, he is Turkish and will have to learn the language," Di Francesco said.

"The adaptation of the Turks in the past was not always perfect, so there will be work. He is a different kind of footballer but I assure you that he has important qualities."

Roma to step up pursuit for Arsenal target .
Arsenal have been linked with a move for Riyad Mahrez for some time now, but it looks as though Roma have established themselves as genuine contenders for his signature. According to the Daily Mail, the Serie A side are keen to improve upon their opening offer for the Algerian international as they look to bolster their squad this summer. Roma were claimed by reports out in Italy to have made an initial offer of around £20m for Mahrez; a fee which is clearly insufficient. However, the Daily Mail state that the Italian side are ready to improve their offer. Monchi, Roma’s sporting director, is claimed to have already held discussions with Leicester’s board over a potential move. Leicester are keen to take in at least £40m from the sale of Mahrez, who handed in a transfer request at the end of the season, and Arsenal are understandably deterred by his valuation.
