Per a report from kicker, the rumors about Bayern Munich making a run at VfB Stuttgart center-back Ozan Kabak are true as the Bavarian club is in talks with the the player’s management.

Just 19, Kabak has been a popular figure on the transfer market with Schalke 04, Manchester United, Porto, Tottenham Hotspur, AC Milan, West Ham United, and Monaco all showing major interest in the talented defender.

Now, according to kicker information, representatives of FC Bayern have announced an exchange with Kabak’s management for this week. This is leading to intensive discussions with interested parties from all over Europe, and Schalke, Monaco, Manchester United, West Ham United and AC Milan are also on the ball for Turkey’s centre-back talent.

Transfer Market Web, however, is reporting that AC Milan might have the upperhand in trying to secure Kabak.

Since Stuttgart got relegated from Bundesliga, Turkish center-back Ozan Kabak (19), despite having joined German club just last January, is already leaving for good. To this end, AC Milan, after having signed Rade Krunic from Empoli, are ready to bring the 2000-born in, paying out the whole 15 million euros exit clause set upon him. Kabak, who was purchased on a €11m from Galatasaray only five months ago, is tracked by a bunch more clubs, including Bayern Munich, Schalke 04, West Ham, Porto, and Tottenham.

If you were waiting for Bild’s Christian Falk to chime in with a thumbs up or thumbs down, the was no major flexing on this one. Falk confirmed that Bayern is in discussions with Kabak’s representatives and that the price for a move would be €15 million.
