Crystal Palace are reportedly battling to sign Ozan Tufan from Turkish Super Lig outfit Fenerbahce.
There is a good chance that Turkish international Ozan Tufan will be playing in London next season.
23-year-old Tufan, who has been playing for Fenerbahce since he moved from Bursaspor in 2015, is one of the most talented homegrown players in the Super Lig right now, and he even scored three goals in nine games in 2017/18 before his campaign was ruined by a fall out with the now departed manager Aykut Kocaman.
But with a battle developing between Fulham and Crystal Palace, it seems that the latter has made the first move.
It remains to be seen, however, whether Tufan has a future in Istanbul. Kocaman has been replaced in the dugout by PSV’s Eredivisie-winning manager Phillip Cocu and Fanatik claim he has been impressed by Tufan’s new fitness regime.
And it has been reported that the midfielder would like to stay with Fenerbahce.
Whether this is possible due to the black and yellows' need to raise funds to avoid Financial Fair Play sanctions remains to be seen.
