Crystal Palace: Fans react to Ozan Tufan battle

Crystal Palace: Fans react to Ozan Tufan battle - Crystal Palace

Crystal Palace and Leeds United appear to be battling it out for Fenerbahce midfielder Ozan Tufan.

And plenty of Palace fans have been reacting to the links on social media.

According to Turkish outlet Fanatik, the Eagles are determined to complete the signing of Tufan after failing to land him in the past.

They claim that Palace are ready to activate the 26-year-old’s €20m (£17.3m) clause in his deal to bring him to Selhurst Park.

However, a report from a different Turkish outlet, Fotomac, claim that Leeds have emerged as a surprise candidate for Tufan and will aim to sign him before the start of the Euros this summer.

Tufan’s Fenerbahce contract still has over two years left to run, so it seems as if any club wanting to land the central midfielder will need to splash the cash.

Palace appear to have been long-term admirers of the Turkey international, who was once likened to Yaya Toure, with Tufan admitting he was close to a Selhurst Park switch back in 2018.

Palace fans react

@cpfc_xtra shared both stories on Twitter on Wednesday morning regarding Tufan.

This is what some Palace supporters had to say in reply…

“Roy has got no say on who the club buys, we wouldn’t have so many no-shows if he did”

“Can we sign him purely for the fact that we can’t be rumoured with him anymore. I’m bored.”

“Why would he want to come and play Royball?”

I remember when we were first interested and I was excited because he was like 22

“I beg we just sign this guy so we don’t have to hear this exact rumour every two months”

“Been tryna sign him for 3 years now”
