Liverpool turn down cut-price Kabak offer

Liverpool have turned down an offer to sign Ozan Kabak on the cheap.

His parent club Schalke, who will be playing second division football in Germany next season, put a price on his head of just £8.5 million.

That is a considerable discount on the option to buy clause in his contract during his loan spell with the Merseyside club last season which valued him at £18 million.

The Anfield side decided not to take up that option, pursuing instead a £35 million deal for Ibrahima Konaté from RB Leipzig instead.

And now they have declined the opportunity to take the Turkish international, who made 13 appearances for them on loan during the second half of last season, even on reduced terms.

Liverpool have now decided that they are more than well-covered in the centre-back department, with Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez and Joel Matip returning to fitness, as well as Konaté.

In addition, they also have Nat Phillips and Ben Davies  and young players like Rhys Williams and Billy Koumetio.
