Tottenham Hotspur fans may remember breaking their transfer record to sign a promising Roma winger a fair few years ago, with the man in question, Erik Lamela, still being at the club.

Reports have suggested that Spurs are keen on another Roma talent, after winger Cengiz Under has notched three goals and six assists in 18 games this season (talkSPORT).

Arsenal are said to have failed with a 32 million Euro bid in January, with both North London clubs competing for his signature.

SporunDibi now claim that Sevilla will swoop in and scoop up the highly-rated Turkish star, reuniting him with former Roma director of football, Monchi.

The report says that a deal is all but finalised between Sevilla and Roma, much to the dismay of Tottenham.

Spurs have been scouting and following the rise of Cengiz Under for the last four years, making it particularly gutting to miss out on his signature.
