Van Dijk’s temporary replacement – Liverpool will try to add a Schalke defender
Liverpool are set to pay £ 20m in exchange for Ozan Kabak. Turkish central defender has been playing in the Bundesliga since 2019.
Reigning Premier League champions Liverpool are in talks with Schalke. During the winter transfer window, the English club will try to add Schalke’s Turkish central defender – Ozan Kabak. He will most likely be Virgil Van Dijk’s temporary replacement.
The 20-year-old Kabak, raised by Galatasaray, is worth £ 20 million and Jurgen Klopp had planned to buy him during the summer transfer window. Still, due to the new financial reality created by Coronavirus, the club could not add him.
Recall that after a clash with Everton goalkeeper – Jordan Pickford, Virgil Van Dyck suffered a serious injury and as members of the club’s medical staff say, the Dutchman will miss the whole season.
