Schalke problem child Ozan Kabak is apparently about to move to TSG Hoffenheim. The defender is said to have already left for the medical check.
As table football and picture report, the Turk is about to move to Sinsheim. Instead of taking part in the friendly against Twente Enschede on Friday evening (8 p.m.), Kabak went straight to his future employer’s medical check-up.
The transfer fee should amount to five to seven million euros. In 2019 Schalke had transferred 15 million for Kabak to VfB Stuttgart. Kabak’s contract in Gelsenkirchen currently runs until 2024.
Schalke had been looking for a buyer for Kabak for some time, who was last loaned to Norwich City and previously to Liverpool FC. The player’s salary, which is said to be around 3.5 million euros, is simply too high for the miners.

In addition, Benjamin Hübner only made five appearances in the previous season due to injury and Ermin Bicakcic is still not fit after his cruciate ligament rupture in 2020.
