Chelsea interested in January move for Roma winger as potential Willian replacement

Chelsea are interested in making a move for Roma winger Cengiz Under according to reports in Italy.

The Turkish international has impressed with his displays in Serie A and Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri keen to bring Under to the Premier League.

The deal to bring the 21-year-old to Stamford Bridge is said to be a player plus cash swap, with Andreas Christensen believed to have been offered to Roma in part exchange after the Danish defender has struggled to get game time under Sarri this season.

Calciomercatoweb are reporting that Sarri is now ready to firm up his interest with an offer, and the unsettled Christensen is said to be open to the move.

Under would likely play on the right side of Sarri’s front three and could potentially replace Willian, who has been linked with both Manchester United and Barcelona.

Under’s performances in Serie A have attracted the interest of the continent’s leading clubs, with both Arsenal and Bayern Munich also rumoured to be interested.
