Bayern to thrown spanner in works for Kabak
Reported West Ham target Ozan Kabak is said to have opened talks about a move to Bayern Munich from relegated Stuttgart.
The 19-year-old is set to leave the Mercedes-Benz Arena this summer after Die Roten slipped into 2 Bundesliga and he is not short of suitors.
The Hammers were linked with the Turkey Under-18 centre-back, who is reportedly valued at around £13.
5m, but it is now claimed that the Bundesliga champions have made their move and hope to swoop as soon as possible.
It remains to be seen what happens and it may well be down to the player’s choice as the youngster is unlikely to see regular playing time with the Bavarians.
The Ankara-born starlet made just 15 top-flight appearances for Stuttgart last term and renowned Bayern reporter Christian Falk has revealed the German champions are in the picture.
West Ham boss Manuel Pellegrini will hope the lure of more gam- time in the Premier League might appeal to Kabak although Bayern’s pull is clearly significant.
