    Four goals and two assists in the last three games, not bad for a Turkish 20-year-old Serie A debutant. Looks like Monchi has unearthed another gem from his expansive scouting system. Looking at recent transfers, Roma knows their place in European football, and I think they plan on exploiting that to the fullest, by buying cheap prospective talents like Cengiz and selling them for big profits when they start showing their class. The "Dybala of the Bosphorus" has apparently been looking to Roma's eternal hero Totti, for advice. He was bought from İstanbul Başakşehir for 13.4 million euros (plus another one and a half million bonus based on the results).

    A left footer who can play on the right, he has often been compared to Mo Salah and Paolo Dybala, for his playing position and also his playing style. He is the protagonist of Di Francesco's switch from a 4-3-3 to a 4-2-3-1, freeing up Nainggolan to play his favoured role as enforcer/trequartista, and ultimately helping the team recover from a slump that lasted for the months of December and January. Cengiz's presence has transformed this attack. His commitment, work rate, ability to get forward, crossing, and sticking to the byline has forced defenders to abandon their positions to track him, freeing up space for Dzeko.

    This one's definitely one to watch as a top future prospect.

    There are so many talented young players to keep an eye on, it is ridiculous.

    I posted about him in Serie A thread this week, he looks very interesting player and someone to keep an eye on.

    He is just 20 and looks like he will have a big future.

    Makes you wonder what our scout have been doing for the last 10 years. We have not unearth any gem for that period.

    I'm utterly fascinated by this lad after stumbling across him vs. Sampdoria. Going through a bit of a purple patch since as regards goalward contribution - starting with the Verona game, but the Salah and Dybala comparisons, as mentioned in the OP, are quite apt from an aesthetical and positional standpoint. Reckon he draws favorable comparison to Bernardo Silva as well considering the way he effortlessly glides past players, isn't afraid of executing harder technical stuff at the risk of embarrassing himself, works relatively hard in the defensive phase - a rare trait amongst gifted attacking players, and retains the ball well under pressure for the most part. Still early days and he's got a lot to work on, but he looks a better player at the first team level than either Emre Mor or Enes Ünal, and plays with a sense of infectious enthusiasm.

    Apart from Martial, Pogba, Axel, Rashford, Gomes, De Gea, Shaw and a few others. You may have a point.... Grass is always greener on the Caf.

    I wouldn't say he looks as good as Bernardo Silva but he does look interesting.

    Well he does play on the right and looks like he can cross a ball, so...

    Looks like Dybala's twin.

    Great movement and great finish to give Roma the lead tonight. Dzeko played a great ball but Cengiz did well to avoid the defender and get the ball past the keeper.

    Dzeko's pass was insane. Who knew he had that in him.

    So glad he didn't move to Chelsea. He's been a bit off this season but he's done enough since moving to Roma to show that he's a mighty fine striker. Would have started ahead of Morata and Giroud, for sure, not that those two are getting much game time anyway.

    Been playing very well last few weeks.

    I thought he'd been at Roma a few years but confused him with another player they had...think he's called Umar?

    Umar Sadiq, he's on loan at NAC Breda until the end of the season. Was on loan at Bologna(?) and Torino for the last two years. Scored 2 goals in 6 games for Roma, during his debut season.

    Looks like he's got great potential. Turkey has some bright players coming through. Does anyone know how Emre Mor is getting on? Seems to have faded since he moved from Dortmund. There's also the other striker who City sold to Villarreal iirc but I can't remember his name?

    Speaking of young Turkish players, what's happened to Emre Mor?

    He looks so good and confident for such a young player. Scored a great goal again yesterday.

    Slight deflection off Mário Rui but his rich vein of form continues:



    5 goals and an assist in the last 6 games now.

    Only 20 and this was probably his biggest start this season bar the away win v Napoli which he scored in. He'll have highs and lows. Normal for a player of his age... just a shame it happened against Liverpool.

    I really did not notice he was on the itch in the first half. I just remember seeing Salah and Mane running at Roma's defense over and over again. Oh and Ox was hurt.
