Özen started his professional career in 2008 at the then Division 4 club Stafsinge IF based in Falkenberg. For the 2009 season he moved to Varbergs BoIS where he played for three seasons, two seasons in Division 2 and one season in Division 1. Özen transferred to Allsvenskan club Mjällby AIF for the 2012 season. After having only played five matches for the club in his debut season, Özen made a breakthrough for the 2013 season where he played a majority of the club's matches. And maybe you know his younger cousin, Sami Özen who is playing in the youth of Oranje Nassau in the netherlands, he is a promising talent.
On 3 December 2013 it was announced that Özen had signed a four-year-long contract with the reigning league champions Malmö FF. Özen will wear the number 24 shirt for the club. The transfer went through on 10 January 2014 when the Swedish transfer window opened. After having only appeared in only one league match for the club during the 2014 season, Özen was sent on loan to Turkish Süper Lig side Kayseri Erciyesspor until the end of the 2014–15 season.
