Liverpool reject chance to sign Ozan Kabak for astonishing knocked-down fee

Posted by

Liverpool have rejected a chance to sign Schalke centre-half Ozan Kabak for a drastically knocked-down fee this summer.

The Reds were handed an opportunity to bring the Turkey international back to Anfield on a permanent basis for just £8.5 million, according to the ever-reliable Neil Jones.

Schalke were believed to be previously asking for around £23 million for Kabak, but their delicate financial position this summer has forced a re-think.

After being relegated to 2. Bundesliga, the Konigsblauen are said to be trying to cut down their wage bill and the centre-half, who spent six months on loan at Liverpool last season, is on around £35,000 per week [Salary Sport].

We at Empire of the Kop believe the Reds are missing a trick if they’ve truly closed the door on signing Kabak for £8.5 million.

If Liverpool were to sign him for that little, they could quite easily play him in domestic cup matches this season and sell him next summer for around £30 million – if there was still no room at Anfield or him.

    .Obviously we Reds do not know what is going on behind the scenes but this situation would seem to be a no-brainer.
    We have made some very astute deals in the past and some disastrous ones. But in these days of multi million pound transfers Kabak at 8.5m would appear to be a sound investment if only, along with Nat Phillips, as cover for the injury prone defenders we have at present. YNWA
