Touma came to Malmö FF from BK Forward in July 2008. He made his Allsvenskan debut on 14 July 2008 against Hammarby IF. Prior to the 2009 season, he decided to switch his surname to Durmaz. His breakthrough came in the 2010 league winning season when he started in 15 games and played 27. Durmaz scored the opening goal against A.C. Milan in an exhibition game on 14 August 2011.[9] Durmaz continued to the play regularly for the club during the 2011 season and finished the season with 27 league matches played and four goals scored.

After two seasons in Turkey, Durmaz signed for Greek Super League club Olympiacos Durmaz in August 2014.[13] He scored his first goal for the club with a close-range effort against OFI Crete on 14 September.[14] His first hat-trick came in an 8-0 win over Tyrnavos in a Greek Cup game on 29 January 2015.[15]

Toulouse

Durmaz moved to Ligue 1 club Toulouse in August 2016, for a fee in the region of €2.5 million.[16][17] On 26 August 2017, Durmaz scored two goals (both of them penalties) in Toulouse's 3–2 Ligue 1 home win over Stade Rennais to bring his 2017–18 Ligue 1 goal tally to three and improve on the two Ligue 1 goals he scored in the whole of the 2016–17 Ligue 1 season.[18]

On 2 July 2019, Durmaz joined reigning Süper Lig champions Galatasaray S.K. on a free transfer after his contract with Toulouse ran out.[12] He signed on a three-year deal, earning 6,000,000 TL for the first season, 7,000,000 TL the second season, and 8,000,000 TL for the final year of his contract.[19]

International career
