Leicester fans react to Ozan Kabak links
A number of Leicester City fans have taken to Twitter to comment on reports claiming that the Foxes want Liverpool loanee Ozan Kabak.
Kabak’s future looks set to lie away from Anfield. The 21-year-old joined the Reds on loan in the January transfer window as Jurgen Klopp continued to wade his way through their awful defensive problems.
Kabak showed some potential during his time on Merseyside. But it appears that Liverpool have decided against keeping the youngster.
The Independent reports that the Reds are set to bring Ibrahima Konate in during the coming months.
And with that, Liverpool have reportedly chosen not to take up the £18 million option to make Kabak’s loan permanent.
But that does not necessarily mean that Kabak will not be in the Premier League next year.
The report suggested Leicester are one of his admirers, while Konate’s current club RB Leipzig are also interested.
Leicester fans divided on Kabak links
Several Leicester fans have commented on the links with the Liverpool loanee.
Some are not too keen to see him join Brendan Rodgers’s ranks. It probably did not help that he did not have the best time when the Reds visited the King Power Stadium.
Others however, feel that he is an incredibly bright talent, and they have suggested that he could make Liverpool rue their decision.
With that in mind, here is how some of the Leicester fans have reacted to the links with the Reds loanee…
Not for me, didn’t he make that howler at the KP when we beat Liverpool ? Better options for CB this summer. Tarkowski, Tah would be my first two picks this summer

He could be coached up. Caglar could mentor him. He has no fear. Still young. Nice depth addition if not too pricey

Yes he was growing into the role at liverpool.

Didn’t set the world alight
And if Liverpool didn’t want to turn his loan to perm for £18m, why would we?

Thoughts? He’s perfect. What’s taking so long? Playing with his buddy Soyuncu will hopefully tip the scales.

IMO a good value signing given Schalke’s financial issues, as the other options probably would be too expensive for a back-up https://t.co/2VGTnvbWsl

Rather see Tarkowski, Mee or Dunk. Older, but prem experience and playing for us could get them in the England squad

I agree we need another experience CB but kabak would be a massive upgrade on amartey and he’s available for around £18 million
