Liverpool deal ‘looming’ for fresh target as ‘mega transfer’ beckons

Liverpool are keen to bring Schalke defender Ozan Kabak to the Premier League this summer, according to reports in Germany.

The 20-year-old completed a move to Germany from Galatasaray back in January 2019 and he managed 17 appearances in total as Stuttgart ended up being relegated from the Bundesliga.

After being linked with Manchester United and Arsenal, Kabak moved to Schalke last summer and has now established himself at the Veltins-Arena, making 28 appearances in all competitions.

The Turkey international, who won his first and only cap in November, has been man of the match in two of his seven appearances since the Bundesliga resumed in June.

And now those performances have reportedly caught the eye of Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp with Bild (via Sport Witness) claiming that the German coach is keen to bring him to Anfield this summer.

Bild call the potential deal for Kabak a ‘mega transfer’ with an offer ‘on the way’ from Liverpool.

The deal is ‘looming’ and any big fee would help the ‘financially stricken’ Bundesliga side, who are managed by former Huddersfield Town boss David Wagner.

Wagner is a close friend and former assistant of Klopp’s and the report claims that it could help smooth communication between the clubs, with Schalke demanding €35m for the centre-back.
