Watford ‘following’ Fenerbahce midfielder Ozan Tufan’s situation closely
Watford have been linked with Fenerbahce midfielder Ozan Tufan on Tuesday evening.
Who is Ozan Tufan?
As already mentioned, Ozan Tufan is currently plying his trade in the Turkish top-flight with Fenerbache.
Tufan has been on Fenerbache’s books since 2015, when he signed from fellow Turkish outfit Bursaspor for a fee believed to be around £6.3m.
Tufan would spend some time in Fenerbache’s youth ranks, but was eventually handed a chance to shine in the first team and has now made 174 appearances for the Turkish outfit.
In said matches, the 26-year-old central midfielder has managed to score 21 goals and also provide 24 assists.
Though a natural central midfielder, Tufan can also play as a defensive midfielder, attacking midfielder or even on the right side of a back-four/five.

If Tufan does sign, Watford will be hopeful he can have a similar impact to that of Emmanuel Dennis.
The 23-year-old signed for the Hornets from Club Brugge this summer and would mark his debut with one goal and one assist in Watford’s 3-2 win over Aston Villa.
