Arsenal and Liverpool have reportedly made contact with Borussia Monchengladbach over midfielder Denis Zakaria.
The 22 year-old has turned heads after a strong start to the Bundesliga campaign for Gladbach.
Arsenal are short in midfield, particularly as Granit Xhaka’s future is now uncertain.
The Gunners’ skipper plays alongside Zakaria at international level for Switzerland and is a big fan.
Defensive midfielder Zakaria has played every minute this season, with his eye-through-a-needle passing and dogged determination catching the eye.
He is under contract until the summer of 2022 but interest in his services is mounting.
As aforementioned, Premier League leaders Liverpool are also interested. As are Tottenham and Manchester United.
Gladbach have an uphill task of hanging onto the star man. It’s not just Premier League clubs who are keeping tabs, but Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund are circling, whilst La Liga giants Atletico Madrid and Serie A big boys Inter Milan are also keeping a watchful eye.
