The young defender played the second half of last season on loan at Liverpool where he adapted to Premier League football.
He would also join Turkey international teammate Caglar Soyuncu at Leicester if he were to return to England.
Kabak made nine starts from a possible 11 in the Premier League last term.
Liverpool did not use their option to buy Kabak at the end of the season however, Schalke have given the green light for a transfer as they were relegated to the German second-tier.
Schalke need to move Kabak and players on high wages on this summer to rebuild.
