Liverpool will sign Schalke defender Ozan Kabak on loan until the end of the season with an option to sign him permanently for €30m, according to reports.

Jurgen Klopp’s side have been so short of fit centre-backs that captain Jordan Henderson has been deployed there in recent weeks but Kabak has now emerged as a surprise choice on deadline day.

Liverpool were also interested in bringing in Marseille’s Duje Caleta-Car but that became problematic so they switched attention to Kabak.

The Reds are expected to confirm Kabak as a deadline day deal as well as Preston defender Ben Davies, who the Merseysiders have agreed a fee for.

Sky Sport Germany (via Sport Witness) say that Liverpool have been working ‘flat out’ to secure a deal for Kabak on deadline day and have been ‘intensively negotiating’ to get it over the line.

Meanwhile, FUNKE’s Schalke reporter Andreas Ernst claims that the offer coming from the Reds is ‘immorally good’.

And now Fabrizio Romano has confirmed that an agreement has been ‘reached between clubs after medicals and personal terms completed’.

Romano adds that ‘the deal will be on loan with buy option and NO obligation, €30m as potential final fee. 5-years contract [if they will buy him].’
