Liverpool have completed the signing of Ozan Kabak from Schalke on loan until the end of the season, subject to international clearance.
Reports claim that the Reds have also included an option to buy Kabak for £18m, although some reports put that figure at €30m.
The Reds have already brought in Ben Davies from Preston and now the signing of Kabak significantly strengthens the centre of their defence.
The Reds have been so short of fit centre-backs that captain Jordan Henderson has been deployed there in recent weeks, with Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez suffering from long-term injuries.
And Liverpool announced the loan signing of Kabak late on deadline day, confirming that the Tukey international ‘will wear No.19’.
The Merseysiders say Kabak ‘completed the formalities of the switch in Germany and will travel to Merseyside later this week’.
