The youngster has made two international caps for the Turkey U21s but could find himself taken to Euro 2020 with the senior side this summer.

Voetbal Primeur reported that the north London outfit sent club officials to the Rotterdam to hold talks with Feyenoord over Kokcu.

Feyenoord struck a new contract deal with Kokcu last April that expires in 2023 but they want to seal another deal to offer better terms in the hope that he stays.
