Liverpool are reportedly ‘lining up’ to sign Borussia Monchengladbach midfielder Denis Zakaria

The Reds are believed to be keen on the 24-year-old with Manchester City and Juventus also in pursuit. 

Out of contract at the end of the current season, Zakaria is expected to be a transfer target in January as Monchengladbach look to cut their losses. 

That’s according to a report from Calciomercato (via Sport Witness), as cited by Total Football Center on Twitter. 

The report claims that the 40-cap Switzerland ace’s contract ‘will not be renewed’ at the Bundesliga club. 

This season Zakaria, who was described as ‘incredible’ by Marco Rose, has scored twice and provided one assist in nine league outings.


Valued at £24.3million (Transfermarkt), signing the combative Swiss star at a reduced fee in January would be an exceptional piece of business. 

Seemingly fully recovered from any major injury issues, Zakaria presents a relatively risk-free option to bolster the midfield options at Jurgen Klopp’s disposal. 

Predominantly a defensive midfielder, the former Young Boys starlet can operate in more advanced roles and possesses impressive dribbling skills.
