A number of Liverpool supporters have taken to Twitter to comment on reports from the Daily Mail over the weekend suggesting that the Reds want Ozan Kabak.
Jurgen Klopp’s men have already sold Dejan Lovren this summer. The Croatian has joined Zenit St Petersburg after six years on Merseyside.
And it appears that one of the names being considered as a potential replacement is Kabak. The Daily Mail claimed over the weekend that Liverpool are battling the likes of Juventus and Manchester City for the £40 million-rated Schalke star.
Interestingly, Kabak recently told the Bundesliga’s official website that Virgil van Dijk was his footballing idol.
The Mail did note that the Premier League champions were not planning to meet Kabak’s asking price.
And it should be noted that the Liverpool Echo have since suggested that Kabak is not on the club’s radar this summer. So of course, it may be that the Anfield faithful hear little else when it comes to links with Kabak.
But there are plenty who are keen to see the youngster join the club this summer. They believe that he boasts an enormous amount of potential, and Klopp – as he has already proven on numerous occasions – would be the perfect boss to take his game to the next level.
Here is how some of the supporters reacted to the reports…
Would be a great signing !

How am I seeing people say no to kabak? He’s 20, available for 20-30 which is what Ben white would cost. Kabaks younger and better and would be perfect for us. We have injury prone cb’s in gomez/matip and kabak’s one of the best young cb’s around

This Ozan Kabak kid from Schalke looks like a good stylistic fit for us. Aggressive defender who has decent pace and likes to play a long ball out to the flanks. If the links are real then I’d be pretty pleased with him as a Lovren replacement.
