Sky Deutschland (via Mirror) report that both Arsenal and Liverpool have held an initial meeting with Zakaria’s representatives, whilst Manchester United have also been in talks with his entourage and Tottenham Hotspur are following his progress.

The Gladbach defensive midfielder has a contract with his current club until 2022, and he’s played every minute of every possible competition so far this season.

The Swiss international’s side sit top of the Bundesliga table, so right now things couldn’t be going much better for him. He must feel like he’s won the jackpot with https://conquestador.com/.

It’s clear why Zakaria is generating such interest, helping Gladbach maintain the second-best defensive record in the league by shielding the back four whilst also chipping in at the other end from time to time.

That’s also going to make his club keen to hold onto him though. The suggestion is that a deal could cost €50m, and with the Premier League clubs listed as having an interest, that’s hardly surprising.
