He is currently valued around the £5million region, but depending on the number of clubs looking to secure his services, his price tag could increase dramatically.

The midfielder has been on great form in the Turkish top tier, while his versatility is also seen as a huge asset for interested clubs.

Tufan is usually deployed as a defensive midfielder, but is also competent on the right flanks, both as wing back or a winger.

The Turkish ace has already featured for his side 29 times this season, scoring three goals and providing six assists in the process.
