Kabak opens up on 'dream' Liverpool move and reveals admiration for Klopp and Van Dijk

Ozan Kabak has opened up on his "dream" move to Liverpool while expressing his admiration towards Jurgen Klopp and Virgil van Dijk.

The 20-year-old has enjoyed a rapid ascent to stardom at Vetlins-Arena, and will now be expected to help Liverpool fight for silverware on both domestic and European fronts.

Klopp sought to add the Turkey international to his ranks amid a defensive injury crisis which has decimated his squad, with Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez and Joel Matip all unavailable for selection.

Ben Davies has also been snapped up from Preston on a permanent transfer, but Kabak is likely to the one who will slot straight into Liverpool's starting XI at centre-back heading into the business end of the season.

The Schalke loanee is itching to get his first taste of football at Anfield, and told the club's official website:"Liverpool was my childhood team. So I always wanted to come to this club, to play at this amazing stadium, in front of these amazing fans.

"It's a dream for me. Now the dream comes true."

Asked if he is relishing the prospect of working under Klopp, Kabak responded:"I'm looking forward to working with him. He's one of the best coaches in the world. I have heard a lot of things about him from my ex-coach David Wagner – he told me a lot of things about him.

"Like I said, I'm looking forward to working with him, to take some things from him."

The young defender is also looking forward to working with and learning from Van Dijk, with it his belief that the Netherlands international has no equal in his position.

"Virgil van Dijk is, I think, the best centre-back in the world at the moment. The last three or four years he was always on his best performance," he said. "He's strong, he's good, he's so fast, he's clever. So that's why I see him as an idol. I want to meet with him as soon as possible, to be honest."

Kabak added on his personal goals with the Reds:"My target is to be a top player. I need to improve a lot. I have talent but I need to improve myself and to get some minutes, to make some games here. Then I want to be a top player, like the others.
