Liverpool have reportedly been in touch with Portuguese side Braga over the potential transfer of David Carmo, according to Fabrizio Romano.
The Sky Sports honcho hinted at the Reds having a ‘Plan B’ for Ozan Kabak, in the event of a deal not being agreed with Schalke before the German deadline at 5pm GMT.
It seems Carmo is being touted as the Premier League champions’ second-choice for an additional defensive signing this window, with Preston’s Ben Davies already lined up for a transfer.
It should be noted that the North End defender will imminently join Liverpool, after a £2million deal was agreed late last night ahead of a deadline day move.
According to several reports coming out of Germany, Turkey international Kabak seems the most likely to become the second centre-half to join the Reds before the window shuts.
A potential stumbling block for Jurgen Klopp and co. is that Schalke want to sign an immediate replacement for the 20-year-old, as reported by Sky DE.
The transfer window shuts in Germany a little earlier than it does in the UK, with Bundesliga clubs required to finish their business by 5pm GMT as Shkodran Mustafi is linked with a the job to replace Kabak.
