BILD: Liverpool want Schalke’s Kabak to replace Lovren

Liverpool are keen to add Schalke central defender Ozan Kabak to their title-winning squad, BILD reports.

With Dejan Lovren poised to join Zenit, Jurgen Klopp is in the market for a replacement.

And Kabak, 20, is on Liverpool’s shopping list with the English club feeling that a deal can be done.

The Turkish international was linked with Tottenham in July, but Schalke’s issued a hands-off warning.

However, with financial problems hitting them hard, Schalke are now starting to think about selling Kabak.

Kabak’s €45m release clause only comes into effect next summer, leaving the Gelsenkirchen club free to negotiate a price.

According to BILD, Schalke could accept €35m for a player they paid €15m for last summer.

Selling Kabak would be a bitter loss for Schalke as he is an undisputed starter under coach David Wagner.

In total, Kabak made 28 appearances for Schalke this season, scoring three goals.
