Repubblica: Bundesliga defender linked with Milan to bolster depth

By Euan Burns -

Turkish defender Ozan Kabak has been linked with AC Milan once again as a potential depth option after Matteo Gabbia’s departure, a report claims.

As has been reported by La Repubblica (via Pianeta Milan), Milan are assessing a number of options that could provide depth at the back now that Gabbia is gone and Simon Kjaer is continuing to struggle with injuries.

Kabak has been linked with Milan a number of times in the past two-three seasons, but a move has never materialised. He currently plays for Hoffenheim, joining from Schalke after loan spells at Liverpool and Norwich.

Milan’s favoured defensive target right now is Clement Lenglet from Barcelona, but they must make sales for that move to happen and Kabak would almost certainly be a cheaper option, both in terms of transfer fee and player wages.

A central defender and a striker are the two moves that Milan want to make next.

  1. Kabak wasn’t great when he was on loan in PL, at either side. Surely we don’t need a guy who couldn’t make the grade at Norwich?

    1. Simic and Estevee are just what our CB department needs

      I think Simic hasa big part to play for us this season and the seasons to follow, he will be better then his Dad who was unfortunately playing during the time when seria A and specifically Milan defenders were the best of their generation.

      I really hope Simic gets his chance just Thaiw did and I am sure he will not let us down

      1. I have no issues with either but they would be 4rth or 5th choices as i would hope we keep kjær for the remainder of his contract but sure both has talent. It propably would make the most sense getting estevee now at cheap and loan out simic for a season or two and let him get some first team experience before retrurning in my view.

      2. Dude,sorry to disappoint you but Simic is not the son from Dario Simić the ex Ac and Inter player 😉

        Instead of buying another DC this guy should gets his chance i agree ,that must be said.

  2. Hmm who would cost less Kabak or Estève? Kabak has 10m current Value while Estève has 7m. Kabak has 3yr contact left while Estève has 2 yr contact left. Esteve is 1,93 left footed 21yrold while Kabak is 1,87 right footed 23yrold who would cost less hmmmmm. Better get Esteve bro wtf
