Arsenal, Man United eye 19-year-old Bundesliga defender – report
Arsenal, Man United and Tottenham are all looking to complete deals to sign Stuttgart defender Ozan Kabak, according to a report in England
Arsenal, Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur are all keeping tabs on Stuttgart defender Ozan Kabak, according to a report in England.
The Daily Mail, as quoted by the Daily Express, is reporting that the Premier League trio are interested in the 19-year-old as a potential summer recruit.
The same article states that the Premier League clubs have been eyeing the teenager since before his £9.9m move to Stuttgart in the January transfer window.
According to the same story, Stuttgart’s relegation from the Bundesliga means that Arsenal, Man United and Spurs could test the German club’s resolve to keep the teenager.
The report goes on to add that the Premier League trio are all looking to sign defensive reinforcements in the summer transfer window ahead of the new season.
Kabak scored three times in 15 games in the Bundesliga following his January move to Stuttgart from Turkish side Galatasaray.
The Turkey Under-18 international made 14 appearances for Galatasaray before his move to the German top flight earlier this year.
Tottenham finished in fourth place ahead of Arsenal and Man United in the top four race to secure the final Champions League qualification spot.
Arsenal and Man United will compete in the Europa League next term after disappointing seasons for both clubs.
