Positive covid test delays Arsenal’s move for midfielder

Arsenal has received some encouragement to make a move for Borussia Monchengladbach midfielder, Denis Zakaria in recent days, but there could be a delay before any transfer is concluded.

The Swiss midfielder will be on the move this summer after he informed Gladbach that he won’t sign a new contract and wants a new challenge instead.

Arsenal can sign him for a low transfer fee, but it seems their move for him could take some time after Mirror Football reported that the midfielder has tested positive for coronavirus.

This will come as a minor blow to Arsenal’s plans to add him to their squad as soon as possible.

However, the report maintains that Edu will keep negotiating with his club over his transfer to the Emirates.

If both clubs reach an agreement, it would be just a matter of days before he signs a deal with the Gunners.

Depending on the individual, one can be free of covid-19 within 10 days of being infected.

Zakaria has continued to show his class at Gladbach and was a key member of the squad that qualified for the Champions League last season.

He will bring talent and good experience to the Arsenal dressing room if he makes the move to the Emirates.

    No probem, it takes Arsenal 3 months to negotiate the transfer of a tea lady, so plenty of time.even if its long covid.

      Thanks… I needed that laugh (even if there’s some sad truth to it)…

      Well, my Aunt Doris, the tea lady in question, is rightly holding out for an extra pound a week above minimum wage rate. Would you have her give in so lightly then, you heartless brute!

      1. FingersFurnell says:

        Ah, but there are other, perhaps better, tea ladies around Jon and I think we have a couple coming through the academy that look good

    Okey,Arsenal can wait for him

  3. Biscuitbum says:

    I am underwhelmed by this news about a player we are probably not even interested in.

    1. siamois says:

      I agree I don’t think we are interested in him!does anyone know the number of players the club has been linked to since the start of this window?

      1. jon fox says:

        Yes I do! It is 23865 as of this precise moment. We have signed two as of now with White to come which makes three. Just 23862 left to negotiate with now and still 23 days til Brentford game. Should be easy peasy!

    I am not excited about this guy. He’s average

    1. Johannes says:

      I watched a video about him and he has a lot interesting skills and qualities. He’s also fast and strong. A bit Sambi Lokonga-ish, but more physical.

      1. Akin says:

        Why not just go for bissouma who will love to come and hit the ground running;also covid-free.

  5. allezkev says:

    Sounds like an agent generated rumour via NewsNow.

  6. Aru machuar says:

    Only cheap deals and they need results

  7. Bukeera Juliusceazor says:

    But let us wait and we see

  8. gunnerforlife says:

    He is a technically gifted player, Arsenal must go in for him.

  9. Yazeed isah says:

    We should wait and see what they can do
