According to a report by The Daily Mail, Tottenham Hotspur are set to face plenty of competition from Premier League rivals in their rumoured pursuit of Schalke defender Ozan Kabak.

The Turkish defender is said to have been a long-term target for Spurs (Daily Mail), having been on the North Londoners’ radar since the summer of 2019 before Schakle met his £13.5million release clause to sign him from Stuttgart (Sport Bild).

The 20-year-old defender has come on leaps on bounds since his move to the Veltins Arenta, even though the club find themselves currently rooted to the bottom of the Bundesliga table after a poor start to their current campaign.

During the previous transfer window, Turkish journalist Mehmet Demirkol told beIN Manset (as relayed by Sport Witness) that the defender was on his way to Tottenham only for the move did not materialise.

Ekrem Konur claimed in December that Tottenham were competing with Liverpool and Manchester United for the Schalke star’s signature.

The Daily Mail has now report that Kabak is also wanted by Manchester United, Leicester and Crystal Palace, while RB Leipzig also have an eye on him.

Spurs Web Opinion

I do not believe that a move for Kabak would make too much sense for Tottenham at this moment as we have already have some promising young centre-backs in the form of Joe Rodon and Japhet Tanganga. What we need is an experienced campaigner who can organise the backline.
