Atletico Madrid are set to step up their pursuit of Bursaspor wonderkid Ozan Tufan, according to AS.

The 20-year-old, who has represented Turkey six times, is a central midfielder who can also operate at right-back and has been on Atleti’s radar since they watched him in action for his country in a March friendly with Holland in Amsterdam.

It is understood Los Rojiblancos have already held a meeting in the Spanish capital with Ahmed Bulut, the player’s agent and a Bursaspor intermediary, who informed the La Liga giants that any potential bidding would start at €10m.

Atletico were believed to have had scouts in the Sukru Saracoglu stadium on Monday night when Bursaspor took on Fenerbahce, although they were not alone in running the rule over Tufan as Bayern Munich, Wolfsburg and Borussia Monchengladbach were all in attendance.
