In addition to the German record champions, a number of top-level clubs are interested in defender Ozan Kabak – in the end, even a Bundesliga competitor could be in the lead.
Where does defender Ozan Kabak land? VfB Stuttgart's best talent is according to a "kicker" report from the points of view of FC Bayern Munich. According to information from Sport 1, Kabak consultant Fazil Özdemir was already in Munich on Monday to inform German record-players about the possible role of the defender.

Even more: Italian transfer specialist Gianluca Di Marzio later reported on Özdemir's arrival at Milan airport – because even Milan should be interested in 19-year-old players.

That's not all: the Bavarians have more competition. For AS Monaco, Manchester United and West Ham United are apparently in the candidate – and FC Schalke 04 of the Bundesliga. New twist also: "Sport 1" reported a planned meeting of Özdemir with new Schalke planner Michael Reschke – who had already brought Kabak to Stuttgart last winter. At that time, Reschke – as VfB Sport Board – had a termination clause of EUR 15 million set out in the Kabak contract. He pulls it out now in S04 – and leaves his former Bavaria club (from 2014 to 2017 was Reschke's technical director) leave empty-handed?
Kabak was only half a year ago for about eleven million euros of the Turkish football club Galatasaray Istanbul for the VfB to have changed, quickly became one of the few good points of the Stuttgart season. Kabak scored three goals in 15 appearances. VfB sports director Sven Mislintat said recently that the Swabians do not expect the defender to stay in the game.
