Sven Mislintat has admitted that reported Arsenal target, Ozan Kabak, could leave Stuttgart this summer but AC Milan and Ivan Gazidis seem well ahead of the pack in landing him.
Although Kabak only signed for the Germans in January he already looks set to leave with a host of clubs chasing his signature.
Arsenal, United and Spurs have all been linked with the 19-year-old centreback who cost £9.9m just six months ago and comes with a €15m (£13.4m) release clause.
Speaking to Sky Sports, Mislintat said that the player could be on his way this summer following Stuttgart’s relegation.
Bayern Munich have also been following the teenage defender, who made 17 appearances and scored three goals in the second half of the season with Stuttgart.
Kabak even helped their defence keep three clean sheets in his last five games of the campaign despite the team’s struggles.
The 6’1″ defender is strong in the air and a good tackler and he’s regularly praised for his maturity despite his age.
Given Arsenal’s financial restrictions this summer, signing a promising young centre-back with a relatively low release clause might be a good idea.
At the same time, the Gunners need to be certain of Kabak’s ability because they can’t afford to add yet another mediocre centre-back to the very long list currently at the club.
They have to focus just as much on selling a few defenders as buying this summer.
None of that might matter, anyway, as AC Milan have reportedly already made an offer to the player’s camp.
