Manchester United and Tottenham have joined the race for Stuttgart defender Ozan Kabak according to Kicker.

Per the source, United and Spurs face competition from AC Milan, Porto, Schalke 04, West Ham and Bayern Munich.

Tottenham and United are keen on signing a defender this summer. A €15m fee would likely be enough for Kabak to be granted a work-permit to play in the Premier League.

Bayer representatives reportedly revealed they have been in contact with Kabak’s management this week.

The 19-year-old defender has attracted widespread interest from Stuttgart’s relegation from the Bundesliga as it triggered a €15m release clause.

Turkish-Football have been informed by Kabak’s camp that they are currently considering all offers and have yet to make a final decision over which club he will join – he will be leaving this summer.

Stuttgart signed Kabak just six-months after he broke into the Galatasaray first team for an €11m transfer fee in January.

The rising star established himself as a star player in the Super Lig and Champions League before moving to Germany.

Kabak was named Bundesliga ‘Rookie of the Season’ despite just playing six-months of Bundesliga football.
