Sky Sports journalist Michael Bridge believes that Turkish defender Ozan Kabak remains an option for Crystal Palace.
According to the Guardian, Kabak’s parent club Schalke are looking to sell the 21-year-old, who spent the second half of last season on loan following his January arrival, with Palace one of several clubs interested.
Would Tammy Abraham be interested in a move to Crystal Palace?
Patrick Vieira has already added Chelsea centre-back and Joachim Andersen from Lyon to his defensive line.
However, the Frenchman has already lost Scott Dann and Mamadou Sakho, whilst Gary Cahill rejected a new contract at Selhurst Park, which means there’s no guarantee he’ll be a Palace player next season.
With that in mind, Bridge told This is Futbol that Kabak, who would cost the Eagles around £12m, remains a possibility as a third centre-back addition as Vieira looks to continue his defensive revamp at Selhurst Park:
“I think that he’s one they could go for if they don’t get others. I could be wrong, but I know he’s on their list. They’re looking to get one more, especially if [Gary] Cahill doesn’t re-sign.”
