Liverpool are close to completing a loan-to-buy deal for Schalke centre-back Ozan Kabak, and while there has been a mixed response, there are clear positives.

The Reds have agreed an initial fee of up to £1.5 millon to take Kabak on loan for the rest of the season, with an option to purchase the 20-year-old in the summer for £18 million.

It is a deal significantly better than that proposed late last year, with the Turkey defender’s valuation dropping as Schalke plummet into financial trouble and towards the 2.Bundesliga.

But with a host of other centre-backs linked with Liverpool in the final days of the winter transfer window, the news of Kabak’s imminent move to Anfield has been met with a mixed response.

Here is how supporters and journalists have reacted to the deal on social media.


Plenty saw the positives in the deal…


But others have reservations, mainly due to a spitting incident in September…


Others looked to make sense of the criticism, though…


And by and large, Michael Edwards was hailed yet again…
