Leicester City are in 'advanced talks' to sign Ozan Kabak from Schalke 04, according to Sportitalia.


Per the report, the Premier League outfit have offered €9,5 million for the 21-year-old centre-back.

After dropping out of the Bundesliga, the Gelsenkirchen side have been trying to cash in on Kabak for weeks and recently released him from training so he can focus on finding a new employer.

Kabak spent the second half on loan with an option to buy at Liverpool, who ultimately decided against signing him permanently for €20 million.

Schalke paid €15 million to acquire Kabak from Stuttgart back in 2019.
