Betstars has United priced as overwhelming favourites at 15/8 to sign the 21-year-old Turkish international after an increase in betting activity.
Trading director of Betstars Ian Marmion confirmed that United are leading the race to sign the young midfielder.
“Ozan Tufan impressed for Turkey at Euro 2016 and it’s no surprise that he’s been the subject of much interest from several Premier League clubs,” Marmion was quoted as saying by the Sport Review.
“After a flurry of bets in the last 24 hours, Manchester United have emerged as overwhelming 15/8 favourites to sign him.”
Tufan did hold the record as the youngest player to score at Euro 2016 until 18-year-old Portuguese international Renato Sanches found the back of the net in their victory over Poland yesterday.
The Fenerbahce star was one of the stand out performers for the Turkish national side at Euro 2016 and is widely regarded as one of the most promising box-to-box midfielders in the Super Lig.
Tufan earned himself a high-profile move from Bursaspor to Turkish giants Fenerbahce last season and still has another four-years remaining on his current contract.
The 21-year-old scored three times and provided one assists in all competitions for the Istanbul giants last season.
