REVEALED: Liverpool met with agents of Schalke defender Ozan Kabak

Liverpool have been in talks with Schalke defender Ozan Kabak.

The Athletic says Liverpool held talks with Kabak's representatives in November.

Liverpool reached out to Kabak's intermediaries in November and initial discussions over a potential move to Anfield did take place.

But those negotiations did not go beyond initial talks and Liverpool opted not to pursue a deal to take Kabak to Merseyside in the winter transfer window.

The Reds are believed to be keeping their powder dry for the summer and are not likely to sign anyone in January despite their well-documented injury problems, which have forced them to play two midfielders in central defence.

Kabak is still expected to leave Schalke, but is not expected to join Liverpool.
