Tottenham given the chance to sign 21-year-old starlet for £8.5m as Liverpool pull out

Tottenham Hotspur could make their move for Ozan Kabak this summer

According to Football.london, Tottenham Hotspur have been handed a major boost in their efforts to land Turkish international defender Ozan Kabak.

The 21-year-old is a talented young player and spent the second half of last season on loan at Liverpool. While he did not particularly stand out, he contributed to salvaging the Merseysiders season. Kabak made 13 appearances for Jurgen Klopp’s side before injury saw him sit out the end of the campaign.

Jurgen Klopp’s side opted not to purchase him for £18million following the end of his stay at Anfield. According to The Athletic, they have now rejected the chance to secure a permanent deal for a measly £8.5million. It is a snip in today’s market. Given Kabak’s potential, he might prove to be a steal.

Tottenham Hotspur are interested in Ozan Kabak.

As things stand, Toby Alderweireld remains the only sure starter for Tottenham. However, he appears to be in search of a new challenge and could leave this summer. He could be followed out of the door by Davinson Sanchez who has so far struggled to make a mark at the Lane. (h/t The Mirror)

Spurs are also interested in the more illustrious Jules Kounde. However, no talks have taken place with Sevilla, and the player is unlikely to come cheap. According to The Mirror, Spurs will need to sell before they can buy. Given the financial constraints, Kabak could prove to be a no-brainer.

Schalke is desperate to sell following their relegation from the Bundesliga at the end of the 2020/21 season. The fact that they have drastically reduced their asking price for the player could hint at their desperation. Whether Tottenham take advantage of it remains to be seen.

Despite Liverpool backing out, Tottenham still face competition from Leicester City, Newcastle United, Bayer Leverkusen and RB Leipzig for Kabak. Whether the interest will be ramped up in the coming weeks remains to be seen.

It is perhaps curious that Liverpool, who are often savvy in the transfer market, have passed on the chance to land a promising player for peanuts. Having seen him first hand, they will also have had a better look at his abilities. Perhaps Spurs will do well to do their due diligence before making their move.
