Galatasaray manager Hamza Hamzaoğlu has given the board the green light to sign Bursaspor midfielder Ozan Tufan according to the Fanatik.
Bursaspor want €7 million for the 20-year-old midfielder according to the report.
The young midfielder has established himself as a regular in the Turkish national team setup after breaking onto the scene scoring in his international debut in the 2-1 win against Denmark.
The central midfielder excelled in a defensive role – 2.3 tackles and 1.7 interceptions per-game (Whoscored) – as well as in more advanced positions last season. Only Volkan Şen provided more assists (12) than Tufan (9) for the Green Crocodiles.
Premier League giants Manchester United have also been closely linked with the young midfielder.
The 20-year-old midfielder is being scouted by Manchester United, Manchester City, Chelsea, Juventus and AC Milan according to his father.
“Other big European teams have sent scouts to watch Ozan play…AC Milan, Juventus, Chelsea and both Manchester clubs, City and United,” Mehmet Tufan told Spanish newspaper AS.
