According to BILD, Crystal Palace have submitted a bid worth €8m (£6.8m) to sign Schalke 04 defender Ozan Kabak – Leicester have matched the offer.
What’s the story?
Well, the German news outlet believe Patrick Vieira’s side have made a move for the 21-year-old, with Brendan Rodgers in hot pursuit.
Schalke 04 are desperately trying to offload Kabak, as they find themselves in severe financial difficulty and need the cash.
A few weeks ago, it was said that the south Londoners were in discussions with Schalke 04 over a deal for the 12-cap Turkey international.
Now, that would seem to be true, as a bid has been submitted.
After hearing this news, it will be interesting to see if Tottenham react.
Will Tottenham hijack Crystal Palace’s deal?
According to Tutto Mercato Web, Tottenham are also keen on the centre-back, who Jürgen Klopp called ‘incredible‘ last season.
Spurs have lost Toby Alderweireld, while Eric Dier and Davinson Sanchez failed to impress last season.
As a result, you can see why Nuno Espirito Santo might want another centre-back.
Tottenham have already secured the signing of Cristian Romero.
However, with Schalke 04 desperate to offload Kabak, Spurs may presumably see a chance to sign a big talent on the cheap.
Keep an eye on this saga, with just a few weeks to go until Deadline Day.
