AC Milan have been given a boost in their pursuit of Schalke 04 defender Ozan Kabak as Liverpool are apparently out of the running.
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 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.
According to the Liverpool Echo, Liverpool are not keen on the Turkey international and will not make a move for him next month when the transfer window opens.
The report adds that Manchester United, Milan, RB Leipzig and Liverpool have all been linked, however he will not be moving to Anfield as those reports are ‘wide of the mark’.
