Arsenal receives a transfer boost – See Transfer Details
Arsenal’s search for a new midfielder has apparently been aided by the news that Denis Zakaria could be on the move this summer.
According to the Daily Mirror, the Gunners are being touted as prospective suitors for Zakaria as they seek extra reinforcements in the middle of the park, with Granit Xhaka poised to leave for Roma.
After failing to persuade the Switzerland international to sign a new contract, it appears that Borussia Monchengladbach expects him to look for a new club ahead of next season.
Zakaria has thrived in the Bundesliga, demonstrating that he is a highly talented player, and it’s not unexpected that he’s eyeing a big move as he looks to advance his career.
Gladbach sporting director Max Eberl isn’t enthusiastic about keeping Zakaria, explaining that the 24-year-old and his representatives have stated a wish to move.
The Daily Mirror quotes Eberl as saying, “With Denis (Zakaria), we have been attempting to extend his contract since October.”
“Denis and his management made it obvious to us that they would prefer a summer transfer.”
