According to a recent report by Fotospor, Crystal Palace will face fierce competition from Sevilla and Leicester City in pursuit of Fenerbahce midfielder Ozan Tufan. The same source has also stated that the Turkish club are looking to sell their prized asset for €20m (£16.98m) this summer.
Ozan Tufan’s Impressive Spell In Turkey
Tufan has enjoyed a decent start to this campaign and is currently the captain of Ersun Yanal’s Fenerbahce side. He has scored two goals and provided five assists in 21 appearances for the Turkish outfit this term across all competitions.
Tufan has averaged 2.1 tackles, 1.2 interceptions, 1.1 clearances, 2.0 shots, 1.4 key passes and 1.9 dribbles per game in the Turkish Super Lig this season (stats via whoscored).
The Turkish midfield ace can impact the game at both ends of the pitch and has been responsible for putting in some memorable displays at the heart of the Fenerbahce midfield. He has also earned 49 senior caps for the Turkish national side and has scored five goals for his nation in the process.
With so much optimism surrounding his performances for both club and country this season, it would take a mammoth effort from Palace if they want to land the talented midfielder this summer.
What Will The Turkey International Add To Hodgson’s Side?
Tufan is always looking to create chances for others around him and tends to put in a tireless shift in the opposition half. He can also strike the ball with a lot of power but needs to work on his finishing if he wants to add more goals to his name at the highest level.
Hodgson has often lacked creative options in his midfield this season. He has Luka Milivojevic and Andros Townsend as his only two creative options which explains why Palace have struggled to create enough chances for themselves in the final third.
Will Tufan Be A Wise Option For The Eagles?
A player of Tufan’s vision and creativity will undeniably add some much-needed invention and guile to the Palace midfield which could propel them to becoming a top-half Premier League team in the coming years. Hence, Tufan will be a wise option for the Eagles who could change their fortunes for the better in the long run.
