Arsenal battling Liverpool and Manchester United for the signature of 22 year Bundesliga star.
Arsenal has had problems with creativity this season and are reportedly looking at several creative players to improve their fortunes.
A lot has been said about Arsenal’s poor defence and rightly so. However, they have also had games where a little creativity could have helped swing the games in their favour.
With Mesut Ozil sidelined, Unai Emery may have to look outside to bring in some more creativity and this has linked the Gunners with a move for Bundesliga star, Denis Zakaria.
Zakaria, 22, has been a mainstay in the Borussia Munchengladbach side since he joined them. The youngster has constantly been attracting attention from Europe’s top sides over the past few seasons.
Reports from Sky Germany claims that Arsenal has joined the likes of Liverpool and Manchester United in tracking the Swiss midfielder.
According to the reports, Zakaria won’t come cheap and has been the subject of several bids already. In fact, Borussia Dortmund only recently failed with a £26m bid for him.
Arsenal operated on a tight budget in the last transfer window and it remains unclear if more funds would be made available this January.
The same report claims Arsenal would need to offer at least £43m if they want to sign the midfielder.
