The English club Leicester City has officially announced its contract with the Turkish wing, Genghis Onder,
from the ranks of his Italian counterpart Roma, on loan until the end of the current season.
The English club is seeking to support its ranks before the current summer transfer market closes,
on the fifth of next October, in light of its participation in the European League,
after it finished last season in fifth place in the Premier League table.
The 23-year-old Cengiz moved to the ranks of Rome in the summer of 2017, from Istanbul in Basaksehir,
Turkey, to compensate for the departure of the Egyptian star Mohamed Salah,
who moved to the English team Liverpool in the same summer, after starring in the Roma shirt.
The talented winger shone at an early age, and became one of the most prominent Turkish talents on the rise,
when he imposed himself on the Istanbul team Basaksehir at the age of only 17 years,
and scored 5 goals, and also made the same in the 2014/2015 season.
The rising star continued his brilliance in two consecutive seasons, during which he scored 15 goals and made 11 goals,
to become the focus of attention of many major clubs in the world, and the Roma administration believed that he was able to compensate the Egyptian star who played in the same position,
to pay 13.4 million euros for his contract.
After consuming time to get along with the team, Onder succeeded in providing distinguished levels during the second half of the 2017/2018 season,
scoring 8 goals and making two goals, to impose himself on the basic formation,
and continued his brilliance in the following season, but he suffered an injury that kept him from many confrontations of his life Season,
to end with 6 goals, along with 10 goals.
The Turkish winger’s injuries were repeated, clearly affecting his career,
and he gradually moved away from the accounts of Portuguese coach Paulo Fonseca,
which opened the door to accepting the idea of his loan exit to the English club.
At the international level, Genghis began his career at an early age, as he participated in the European Nations Cup qualifiers against Kosovo in November 2016,
and he was one of the Turkish national team players in his final official confrontation against his Serbian counterpart, on the sixth of September, in the Nations League competitions. European, which is the twenty-first encounter in his international career, which witnessed the scoring of six goals.
And it seems the opportunity is available for Genghis to grab a key position in the formation of the coach,
Branden Rodgers, who does not have special players in that position, forcing him to convert the Spaniard Iosi Perez,
who used to participate during his career in the position of the late striker, to the right wing.
The great pressure of the current season, which started late due to the extension of last season until the end of June,
following the outbreak of the new Corona virus, will also contribute to Genghis getting a great opportunity to participate,
which will also contribute to Leicester City’s participation in the European League.
