Brighton & Hove Albion are reportedly monitoring Feyenoord’s midfield maestro, Orkun Kokcu, amid rumors surrounding the futures of midfielders Alexis Mac Allister and Moises Caicedo.
Kokcu, 22, has been in fine form this season for the Eredivisie club, scoring 12 goals in 35 appearances in all competitions. The Turkey international has been pivotal in Feyenoord’s recent success, helping them climb to the top of the Eredivisie table and reach the quarterfinals of the Europa League.
Kokcu’s impressive performances have caught the eye of several Premier League clubs, including Arsenal and Leicester City, who have been keeping tabs on the midfielder for a while. However, the latest reports suggest that Brighton have now joined the race for the young midfielder’s signature.
Feyenoord has reportedly placed a £30 million price tag on Kokcu, a fee that Brighton may be willing to pay given their need for midfield reinforcements. Kokcu’s versatility and creativity in midfield make him a perfect fit for Roberto De Zerbi’s system, and he could be the ideal replacement for any departing midfielders this summer.
