Liverpool fans react as Leicester eye Ozan Kabak
A number of Liverpool fans have taken to Twitter to react to reports from The Independent claiming that Leicester City want Ozan Kabak.
Kabak’s future looks set to lie away from Anfield. He was brought in on loan during the January transfer window.
But, despite some hugely impressive performances at times, it appears that Jurgen Klopp is not planning to keep the Turkey international.
The Independent reports that the Reds are not going to take up the £18 million option to make his switch permanent. Instead, they are closing in on a move for Ibrahima Konate.
But that does not necessarily mean that Kabak will not be playing in the Premier League next season.
The report noted that Leicester are one of the teams keen on the 21-year-old.
Unsurprisingly, the reports have prompted a strong response from Liverpool fans on social media.
It appears that the supporters feel that the club are making the right decision not keeping Kabak and pursuing Konate.
However, they also fear that the Reds may ultimately rue Kabak moving to the King Power Stadium.
Several believe that he has a lot of potential. And they have suggested that joining the Foxes could be an excellent move for his career.
With that in mind, here is how some of the fans have reacted to the links…

For 18 mil I don’t get why we aren’t all over Kabak I get he’s been injured quite abit but take him he’s 22 he’ll get better over time Aswell as having Konate to help him with VVD

It would be a great move for him, apparently Leipzig want him to replace Konate too.

Leicester always do excellent recruiting. and if they want Kabak it is a mistake to leave him.

Personally I think we should have negotiated a lower fee as it seems they’re desperate to sell

I’m gutted for him. He came into a struggling side and was never able to develop a partnership with anyone . I think he’s a very good player and at 20 has all the time in the world to improve. Our loss will be another club’s gain

Good signing for anyone at 20 mill. Surprised we aint taking him. With no disrespect to Leicester I think a few champ league clubs in Europe will lookat him.
