Crystal Palace could reportedly compete with Liverpool for the signature of Schalke 04 defender Ozan Kabak.

The 20-year-old has been a regular at the heart of the defence for Schalke 04, but he has not been able to arrest their dreadful run of form.

Schalke are currently bottom of the Bundesliga standings with only four points and they are presently seven points adrift of safety.

Irrespective of their league status next term, he could be on the move and The Mail claims that Roy Hodgson's side are interested in signing him.

The Eagles are prepared to ship out Mamadou Sakho and James Tomkins while Scott Dann and Gary Cahill are also approaching the final phase of their respective careers.

Hence, there should be a defensive overhaul at the end of the season and the south London outfit are prepared to compete with the Reds for the defender, who is valued at £25m.

Aside from Jurgen Klopp's side, Manchester United and AC Milan have also been credited with an interest. The Eagles have a tough task on their hands to lure him amid the big club interest.
