VfB Stuttgart's Ozan Kabak has reportedly attracted interest from 'half of the Bundesliga clubs' and plenty of sides from abroad - including FC Porto.

In January, Ozan Kabak became VfB Stuttgart's most expensive signing of all time when he joined the Swabian club in a €11 million deal from Galatasaray.

Now - following Stuttgart's relegation from the Bundesliga - the 19-year-old seems destined to leave Mercedes-Benz Arena already.

According to Sky, 'half of the Bundesliga teams' are interested in the highly-rated centre-back who has a release clause of €15 million in his contract.

Meanwhile, Kabak has also attracted interest from a number of teams from abroad. FC Porto have informed Kabak's agent and Stuttgart of their interest and would even be willing to pay more than €15 million to land him, as per the report.

Schalke are one of the Bundesliga clubs that have been linked with Kabak, but Sky claims 'The Royal Blues' don't have the financial strength to sign the 19-year-old.

Bayern München could be a possibility, but the report states that the Bavarians haven't shown any concrete interest in Kabak at this point.

Meanwhile, Kabak is apparently not an option for Dortmund. BVB were interested in the centre-back in January, but he opted for a move to Stuttgart instead.

Kabak, who has previously been linked with Manchester United, Arsenal and Tottenham, has scored three goals in 15 Bundesliga appearances for VfB Stuttgart.
