Liverpool agree deal for Schalke Centre-Back on Deadline day

Posted by

It seems that Liverpool have waited to the very last day of the transfer window to reinforce their back line as they dip into the Bundesliga for a new defender.

Fabrizio Romano has confirmed that Ozan Kabak, Schalke’s 20 year old Turkish centre-back is on his way Merseyside with his signature “Here we go”.

Liverpool fans will be ecstatic to see they wont have Jordan Henderson moving back to centre-back to help out fellow midfielder Fabinho.

Romano originally reported that deal would only be costing Liverpool €1.5m but further news coming out has revealed that he will cost the red €2.5m and if they want to buy the young defender it will set them back €30m on a 5-year deal.

Liverpool could choose to activate this clause if their three centre-backs continue to battle with niggles and long term injuries.

Should Liverpool fans be happy with this deal?

Don’t forget that this deal could not have happened without Mustafi being involved.
