Schalke defender Ozan Kabak has prioritised a move to the Premier League over a possible switch to AC Milan in January, it is claimed.
It is no secret that Milan 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.
Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara tried to bring him in towards the end of the recent mercato and reports from a number of sources have suggested they will go back in.
According to what is being reported by Marc Behrenbeck of Sky Germany on Twitter, Kabak would prefer a move inside the Bundesliga or the Premier League, with joining Milan his ‘plan b’ at the moment.
He adds that Manchester United, Liverpool and RB Leipzig have recently signalled their interest in the player among other clubs, and while Schalke would sell there has not yet been a decision made regarding Kabak’s January exit.
It has been well documented that Schalke are in turmoil both financially and on the field too, as they are bottom of the league and are registering huge losses.
