Liverpool Boss Klopp Set To Shun Loanee Kabak For Other Targets

Liverpool have the option to buy Ozan Kabak for £18million this summer on a permanent deal following his loan move to Anfield in January.

The 21-year-old was brought in to help the Reds overcome their injury crisis at the back.

However, according to The Sun, manager Jurgen Klopp does not think the Turkey international would be a part of his first-team plans next season.

He therefore does not want to spend £18m of his summer budget on a player who will not be a regular in his team but instead use that money to invest in other targets..

Kabak will now return to Schalke, who were relegated from the Bundesliga this season.

With Van Dijk, Gomez and Matip set to return to fitness this summer, Liverpool's defensive resources look well-stocked.

The impending arrival of Konate has surely affected Kabak's chances of a permanent deal.
