Liverpool could sign Ozan Kabak from Schalke for a half-price deal due to the Bundesliga side’s financial problems, according to Football Insider. Kabak joined the Reds during the January transfer window on loan for the remainder of the season. So far he has made 5 Premier League and two Champions League appearances for Jurgen Klopp’s side.

LIVERPOOL will say farewell to Turkish centre-back Ozan Kabak at the end of this season — and put their rivals on alert.

Boss Klopp believes Kabak would not be in the first-team picture at Anfield next term. And the cash-conscious club are not prepared to splash out that kind of money for the defender to sit on their bench.
