Everton, Southampton eyeing Fenerbahce midfielder Ozan Tufan

Everton are eyeing Fenerbahce midfielder Ozan Tufan.

LigTV says Everton are scouting the young midfielder and he could be one of Ronald Koeman's first targets after taking charge of the Toffees.

Southampton are also linked with a move for the central midfield player, who scored for Turkey in the 2-0 victory over Czech Republic at Euro 2016.

Tufan's manager, Victor Pereira, likened the player to Yaya Toure after his goal at the Euros.

He said: “He still has a lot to learn and that is my job but the world will soon have a central midfielder on the level of Yaya Toure on their hands."
