Born in Holland but of Turkish nationality, this is the new name associated with the viola for the Italian coach
Half wing chapter. There is a track there Fiorentina he has traveled in recent weeks with the headlights off, managing not to let his moves emerge. And the reconstruction of the purple route this time leads directly to Holland, direction Feyenoord. Where the young man Orkun Kokcu a couple of years ago it started to glow. Filling at least three roles in midfield as needed: central, midfielder, attacking midfielder. A record of flexibility. Mix particularly appreciated by the Italian who, within the 4-3-3, is looking for solutions that do not offer points of reference. He writes The nation.
Born on December 29, 2000 in Harleem of Turkish parents, Kokcu went through the process in the Dutch youth national teams before choosing Turkey’s top selection. Already 16 appearances and the very heavy goal scored against Montenegro, which allowed the Turks to access the playoffs against Portugal to win the qualification for the World Cup in Qatar (a feat which later failed). Kokcu has also been associated with other Italian teams (including Milan and Rome) and remains a very sensitive goal for other European clubs.
Among these is Fiorentina
Which in the first instance put the request of the Dutch club on file (18 million) waiting to evaluate the options that lead to Bajrami And Barak. Players who already know our league and possess characteristics very welcome to the purple coach. Kokcu’s numbers tell the evolution of a talent who has gained international visibility (12 appearances and 2 goals in the Conference League). And last season he made his mark in the Eredivisie with 32 appearances, 7 goals and 9 assists.
Its playing features add to the respectable technical share also the gift of a great shot. It must have been this last detail that Italian particularly liked. Looking for a greater contribution of networks from midfielders.
