Arsenal talking to the representatives of quality midfielder ahead of potential free transfer

Arsenal is serious about a move for Denis Zakaria and a new report says they are discussing with the midfielder’s representatives.

The Swiss star is in the last year of his current deal at Borussia Monchengladbach.

The German club has struggled to get him on a new one and they seem to have given up on keeping him.

This has opened the door for Arsenal and his other suitors the opportunity to get their man.

The Gunners want to add him to Mikel Arteta’s squad as they prepare to lose Mohamed Elneny.

Fussball Transfers claims they have been in talks with his entourage as they look to beat his others to his signature.

Just Arsenal Opinion

With Mohamed Elneny almost certain to leave at the end of this season, Zakaria would be an upgrade to the Egyptian.

If Arsenal has to pay a transfer fee for a new quality midfielder, he would probably cost a significant amount.

Therefore, we need to offer Zakaria a contract he would struggle to reject.

The midfielder would have several other top clubs looking to offer him a lucrative contract, so we need to be on our A-game to convince him to move to the Emirates.

  1. Aproper and real talent for once among all the daft rumours that infest JA. IF we can land Zakaria it willbe a real coup!

    I DO believe we are interested in him and to call him simply “an upgrade on Elneny” is akin to saying gold is an upgrade on lead!
    It is virtually impossible to find any player who would not be an upgrade upon the dismal Elneny, tbh!

  2. For anybody who watched Brighton’s game against Chelsea would have seen how exceptionally well Bissouma played.

    If he can play that well against Chelsea for Brighton, surely he could do the same for us.

    1. Highlighted his performance as did Jon F, two days ago.He was outstanding and I suspect he would have stimulated the interest of the top three and Man Utd who need a quality central midfielder.

  3. I have said Zakaria for months especially for his quality and the price, Why not as we are losing players on a free quit regularly, would be nice to grab a couple of cheaps coming into their last 6months. Xhaka is staying, he is his international teammate and will be playing straight away. Get talking Granit

    Belotti is another one who is built for the premier league and has the hold up play to adapt to our game, again is free come the summer and could replace Laca. Eddie & Auba will be gone too so we will still need to biy another attacker to add to Belotti, even for now, Laca doesnt score many goals anyway but makes the team tick.

    Both could come now, cheap enough in Jan window, would slot straight in without spending alot & would let the possible sales of Auba/Eddie & Elneny/Niles be alot easier.

  4. The only drawback with Zakaria is his injury record which to me is a concern.When fit he is a very fine player.
