Arsenal interested in Denis Zakaria

Denis Zakaria, 24, played the entire match when Borussia Mönchengladbach defeated Bayern Munich 5-0 in the German Cup on Wednesday night. The Gladbach midfielder’s contract with the club expires next summer and now German Bild reports that Arsenal have Zakaria on their wish list.

The London club can try with a bid already in the January window, but if it turns out to be too difficult, Arsenal want to sign a pre-contract with Zakaria which is valid from 1 July.

The Swiss national team player came to Mönchengladbach from Young Boys in the summer of 2017 and has scored eleven goals in 136 appearances since then.
