Intermediary confirms Bundesliga talent has ‘great respect’ for Milan; denies Liverpool agreement

By Oliver Fisher -

An intermediary for Ozan Kabak has denied that the Schalke defender has an agreement with Liverpool, confirming he has a ‘great respect’ for Milan.

The Rossoneri are on the hunt for at least one centre-back this summer as they look to bolster a department low on depth, and Kabak is one of the names that has been persistently linked with a move to the San Siro since the summer transfer window.

Marc Behrenbeck of Sky Germany on Twitter reported last night that Kabak would prefer a move to another Bundesliga club or to the Premier League, with Milan his ‘plan b’ at the moment behind Manchester United, Liverpool and RB Leipzig.

An intermediary George Gardi spoke to TMW about the situation surrounding the 20-year-old Turkey international.

Can you tell us about his situation at Schalke?

“Kabak is a professional and is available to the club. Unless Schalke deem him unsellable because of their fight for survival, then he will be available,” he said.

“Otherwise, what I can guarantee is that it is not true, as has been reported, that Ozan has expressed any preference for one or for another league.”

Is Kabak still a real possibility for Milan? Would the player like the move?

“What I can say is that he has great respect for Milan.”

In England they claim that there is a pre-agreement with Liverpool for an exchange with Divock Origi…

“Ozan has been talked about for years but he is from the 2000-class. It is normal for a player of this type, with this profile, to have certain combinations but there is no it is no pre-agreement with any club.”
