Arsenal And Spurs In Transfer War Over Borussia Monchengladbach Midfielder Denis Zakaria

Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur are going to war over the signature of Borussia Monchengladbach midfielder Denis Zakaria, according to reports in Germany.

The Switzerland international has entered the final 12 months of his contract with the Bundesliga side, and club chief Max Eberl has admitted that he is seeking a move away this transfer window.

Zakaria's contract situation has, understandably, alerted several top clubs to his availability, with reports suggesting that bitter north London rivals Arsenal and Spurs will go head-to-head over his sought-after signature.

German outlet Bild claims that Monchengladbach are prepared to sell their midfield maestro for a fee in the region of £17m.

Monchengladbach were originally thought to want £33m for the 24-year-old, but his injury woes and contract situation have seen the German outfit drastically reduce that price.

Since 2017, Zakaria has scored nine goals as well as assisting seven from 128 games in a Monchengladbach shirt and even made two appearances for the Swiss during this summer's Euro 2020.

The 24-year-old has been attracting attention from some of Europe's biggest sides in the past few seasons.

Manchester United, Atletico Madrid and Liverpool are reported to have been monitoring the Swiss ace's form and performances.

Both Arsenal and Spurs could use more depth in their midfield next season and Zakaria could be a useful option, but which north London club will entice him the most? Watch this space.
