Erkan Zengin (born 5 August 1985 in Fittja) is a Swedish footballer of Turkish descent. He currently plays for Eskişehirspor.

He got his first contact with football playing at the playgrounds in Fittja and was not a part of a team until he was nine years old, when he came to Hammarby's youth academy. As a 17-year-old, he played some matches for the Turkish U18 national team. He has later changed his nationality and became Swedish U21-player. Arriving in Istanbul though, he announced that it is his wish to one day play for the Turkish national team.

He made his Allsvenskan debut for Hammarby in 2004 when he came on as a substitute in a match against Malmö FF. The year after, he got his breakthrough as a right wing midfielder, the position he prefers to play at. However, Zengin is a very versatile player and can be used all over the midfield.

In January 2009, he signed a halfyear-loan contract with Beşiktaş J.K. Beşiktaş have the option to buy Zengin in summer for a fee of -400,000.

Now he is playing for Eskisehirspor.
