Everton look set to miss out on Cengiz Under to Premier League rivals Leicester City in the summer transfer window, according to Gianlucadimarzio.com.

It has been reported by Gianlucadimarzio.com that Under will undergo a medical at Leicester today and will join the Foxes on loan from AS Roma.

The former Premier League champions will have to pay a loan fee of €3 million (£2.74 million) and there will be an obligatory clause for them to make the deal permanent in the summer of 2021 for €27 million (£24.66 million), according to the report.

This will come as a blow for Everton, who have also been linked with a move for the 23-year-old winger.

Earlier this week, Corriere Dello Sport reported that Under has ‘a good offer’ from the Merseyside club, but it seems that it is not enough to secure the services of the winger.

Missing out

Under is a very good and creative player who would make Leicester a better team, and Everton are reportedly set to miss out on a brilliant winger.

According to WhoScored, the 23-year-old made 10 starts and eight substitute appearances in Serie A for Roma last season, scoring three goals in the process, while back in 2018-19, he scored three goals and provided seven assists in 26 league matches.
