Liverpool not ready to sign Ozan Kabak on a lower fee

Liverpool declines to buy Ozan Kabak even at a discount price.

Liverpool have turned down the chance of signing the Turkish international centre back Ozan Kabak at a bargain price.

Liverpool thought of signing the Schalke centre half for £18 million ( £21 million ). As of now, his loan spell has come to an end at Anfield. However, now Liverpool have refused to sign a deal with the defender even after getting a bargain price for him. Thus, the price is said to be as low as £8.5 million ( £10 million ).

Neil Jones, the club journalist said that Schalke has been relegated to the Bundesliga 2. Thus, they are desperate to clear the defender’s wage from their books. Moreover, the club is also looking forward to offloading the defender as this might help to reduce their wage bill. However, the former Premier League champions are not showing any signs of proceeding with any kind of deal for Kabak.

Did Liverpool made a right choice by not signing Kabak?

Some Liverpool fans would not have faith in the Reds to back Kabak as their star centre backs are fit and ready to join the club and there will be a lot of competition for the position.

With the comeback of their first choice Netherlands centre back Virgil Van Djik and their new signing Ibrahima Konate from RB Leipzig, the signing of Kabak would only be a good choice if their main centre backs like Joel Matip or Joe Gomez were injured or they were ready to depart from the club.

As Nat Phillips and Ben Davies are already present in the club, the Reds have a surplus of centre-halves in their team. Jurgen Klopp never shows interest in players who are very young or very old. He only had one motive to sign the player that he could play for his side. He doesn’t sign players who will not fit in his side or doesn’t get a chance to play.

Leicester City‘s manager Brendon Rogers is also showing their interest to sign and bring the young Turkish international centre back Ozan Kabak to their side and to the Premier League. And if this happens then this deal would be a low fee deal.
