The youngster is drawing interest from several clubs around Europe after a breakout season in the Turkish top flight

Basaksehir vice-president Mustafa Saral says that several clubs are looking at 19-year-old Cengiz Under, but he would like to see the teenager stick around and continue his development despite reported interest from the likes of Manchester United and Tottenham. 

The forward is considered one of the most promising young talents in Europe after showing during his first season in the top flight with Basaksehir, having joined the club from Altinordu in 2016.

"Lille have held direct talks with us, we have held talks with a few teams that have been mentioned.

"Our response has been the same, it is an honour to receive so much interest but we feel it is in his best interests to spend one more season here and then leave.

"We will see what happens."

Under, who is being compared to Juventus star Paulo Dybala, netted nine times and added seven assists in all competitions for Basaksehir, who signed him for £600,000 last summer.
