Cengiz Under reveals his admiration for Manchester City star David Silva

AS Roma star Cengiz Under has revealed that he is a fond admirer of David Silva and would like to play together with the Spaniard. The Turkey international has been building a reputation for himself at Roma but he has been widely fancied to leave the Giallorossi to pursue a big-money move elsewhere in the summer.

Speaking to DAZN, Under said that he likes to watch the videos of other great players and Silva is one of those, who has impressed him the most. He added that he would like to play alongside the former Spain international, though that could remain a distant at the moment, he quipped: “I have always said that it's very nice to watch other great players, but one should always take himself as an example. You need to be self-critical and you need to improve yourself – I always watch my own videos after games. The one player I really like watching and admire is David Silva. I used to watch his videos often and I like his playing style very much. “I love him, so I hope we can play together some day!”

Under has been attracting interest from the likes of Arsenal over the past year but there has been no indication that the Citizens could make an approach. As such, Under appears unlikely to play alongside Silva, who is approaching the final years of his professional career, but he could get the opportunity to share the playing field , should he make the move to England.

Silva’s current deal with the Citizens is due to expire at the end of next season and reports have suggested that he could either pursue a move to hometown club Las Palmas or decide to step down from the game when the deal concludes. Silva could feature for Manchester City this weekend when they entertain Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League.
