While the Gunners have broken their club-record to strengthen their wing position by signing Nicolas Pepe, Spurs are yet to make significant signings that could enhance the quality of their forward line.
For that reason, they should beat their north London rivals in this race to sign Under.
Below, we analyse the player and his attributes in depth and conclude why Spurs must get him.
Under’s quality is well-known around Europe
Cengiz Under is a renowed player across the international stage who likes to play as a right winger, but is comfortable operating on the other side or as an attacking midfielder if required.
If we talk about his performances last season, the Turkey international scored six goals and assisted 11 in 33 appearances in all competitions for Roma. With 19 senior international appearances for his country, the winger has established his stake as one of the top-ranked players in Europe.
In terms of his attributes, Under is a fantastic dribbler of the ball and has good pace to burn in wide areas. He can pick out key passes in the final third and is a solid finisher in the opposition box.
If Arsenal and Tottenham have decided to renew their interest in him once the transfer window re-opens, it is not a bad idea.

However, with the Gunners already spending a lot on Pepe, they might not be as eager to sign Cengiz Under before. Spurs should take that as an opportunity and beat their rivals in signature of the player.
