Schalke director refuses to rule out sale of defender as Milan and Liverpool’s interest is confirmed

By Oliver Fisher -

Schalke’s sporting director Jochen Schneider has failed to rule out the sale of Ozan Kabak in January and confirmed Milan’s summer interest.

As Calciomercato.com report, Kabak is a player that remains in Milan’s sights and they could very well go back in for him when the window reopened having failed with an attempt to sign the 20-year-old late in the summer window.

Schalke director Schneider confirmed that he was a target for the Rossoneri during an interview with WAZ, and also failed to rule out the idea he could leave in the next window.

“Milan knocked on our door at the end of the transfer market and a sale at that moment was out of the question for us,” he said.

“I only read what was written in those days. We are still in difficult economic times, this season could be played until the end without spectators. So I can’t and I don’t want to exclude anything.”

Meanwhile, a separate Calciomercato article posted just before the one containing the interview above confirms that Liverpool are also monitoring the Turkey international.

It is believed that Jurgen Klopp is looking for a young and talented centre-back to bolster his defensive ranks after the injury sustained by Virgil van Dijk and Kabak is a player who plays in a league he knows well.
