Liverpool ready to trigger Kabak option

Liverpool are ready to exercise their option to buy Turkish defender Ozan Kabak at the end of the season.

Kabak moved to Merseyside from Schalke on loan in January as Jurgen Klopp looked for solutions to his defensive injury crisis. He had a difficult start to his time at Anfield, but has since settled down and proven himself with a series of assured performances.

When he signed, Liverpool paid an initial loan fee of £1.5 million but negotiated an option to acquire him permanently for £18 million, a figure which could rise to £26.5 million when add-ons and bonuses are taken into account.

The Premier League champions are hoping to negotiate these figures down because Schalke, who seem destined for relegation from the Bundesliga, are cash strapped and in desperate need of funds.
