Hakan was born in Mannheim, a city on the banks of the Rhine in southern Germany, from a family of Trebisondese origins. He was born and raised in Mannheim, but at the age of 15 he was selected by Karlsruhe, a team that made him debut in Zweite Liga (Second German League), which launched him into the world of adults: Hamburg observers then selected him.
The Lower Saxony team makes him debut immediately in the Bundesliga, a season in which Hakan makes 34 league appearances and scores 11 goals. The experience at Bayer Leverkusen opens the doors of the Champions League to the Turkish footballer, playing continuously with the red & black jersey and scoring 17 goals. He was then signed by another Rossonero team in 2017, AC Milan.
