City set to try their luck on Kabak after Liverpool move

Contrasting reports have emerged in recent days, initially suggesting Leicester City had accepted an offer for Ozak Kabak.

It was then reported that the club were not interested in the defender, with a right winger seen as one of the club’s priorities.

City may need to increase their depth at center if they want to play three at the back, however, only Caglar Soyuncu, Wesley Fofana and Jonny Evans can play there naturally.

Kabak has a number of qualities, on and off the pitch, which means he might not be such a bad idea for Leicester after all.

Although Liverpool have decided not to move permanently to Kabak this summer, they made 13 center-back appearances last season – including four in the Champions League.

Kabak also made four Champions League appearances for Galatasaray in the 2018-19 season, which helped him win his transfer to Stuttgart and then Schalke.

Arsenal ‘could sell four players’ to fund Maddison’s bid

Arsenal could sell four players to help fund the move of City playmaker James Maddison this summer, according to reports.

Maddison has been closely linked with Arsenal in recent months, with Gunners manager Mikel Arteta planning to improve his options after a modest eighth place finish in the Premier League.

Maddison has been tipped as a potential replacement for Martin Odegaard who joined parent club Real Madrid after a loan at Emirates Stadium.

City are in a strong position when it comes to Maddison’s future, with the 24-year-old signing a new four-year contract last summer.

Brendan Rodgers’ side could demand hefty fees and having a serious intention of making a deal would force Arsenal to raise funds through player sales.

According to the Daily Star, the Gunners could take advantage of four players to increase their transfer budget.
