German outlet Fussball Transfers today writes about the ’13 million problem’ that Ozan Kabak has become for Schalke 04.

Their story recalls that the Bundesliga side had been ‘desperately’ trying to sell the player last summer, and with no buyers showing up, they ended up reaching a deal with Norwich City.

The agreement was for a loan move, with an obligation for a €13m purchase at the end of the season, but the problem is that the clause was conditioned to the Canaries’ staying up in the Premier League.

So with Norwich City now bottom of the league table, there’s not a lot of hope from Schalke 04 that the permanent move will be made.

Now there are two additional issues. The first is that his salary doesn’t fit Schalke 04’s current standards, so their plan would be to sell him again.

The other is that Kabak is barely playing at Norwich City, with only 10 appearances made this season. That means his market price is going down, and it will only make it more difficult for the German side to get rid of him next summer.

The 21-year-old is called a ‘relegation expert’ by the report, as in his few years as a professional, he’s gone down with Stuttgart and Schalke, and could now do the same with the Canaries.
