Report: Leicester eye Ozan Kabak amid Liverpool decision
Leicester City are eyeing a move for Ozan Kabak with Liverpool not planning to keep the Turkey international this summer, according to a report from The Independent.
Kabak enjoyed a mixed time while on loan at Anfield. There were some colossal performances, with many lauding his display against RB Leipzig in the Champions League.
However, he did not feature towards the end of the season. And The Independent reports that Liverpool are not planning to take up the £18 million option to make his move permanent.
Instead, Liverpool are reportedly looking to sign Ibrahima Konate.
As things stand therefore, Kabak looks set to return to Schalke. But perhaps, he may soon be on his way back to the Premier League.
According to The Independent, Leicester are interested in signing the 21-year-old.
TBR View: Liverpool may welcome Leicester going after Kabak
Kabak has shown some potential while with Liverpool. But the Reds may welcome the youngster heading to the King Power Stadium.
Jurgen Klopp may be happy with his defensive options, particularly if Konate does indeed arrive.
But if he wants to strengthen further, previous reports would hint that he may consider a move for Caglar Soyuncu.
The Daily Mirror claimed in March that Kabak’s countryman was one of the names also on their radar.
So perhaps they may be hoping that Leicester signing Kabak may leave the Foxes may just a little more open to offers should Liverpool make a future move for Soyuncu.
