According to The Mirror, Borussia Monchegladbach's Sporting Director Max Eberl recently confirmed that their midfield ace, Denis Zakaria, has expressed interest in leaving the club this summer rather than signing a new contract, whith his current deal due to expire next year.
According to The Mirror, because Zakaria's contract expires in a year, Arsenal has been told they must pay at least £25.6 million to sign him.
Zakaria, a defensive midfielder, thrives on keeping possession of the ball in order to relieve pressure on his teammates and release the ball at the right time. Arsenal currently only has Thomas Partey for that role, so Zakaria's arrival will be a significant upgrade for the Gunners' midfield next season.
With all of these details, one might wonder why the deal hasn't gone through. It's been reported that Denis Zakaria recently tested positive for Corona Virus, which means that even if the two clubs agree on a transfer fee, his move will have to be made official after some time.
Is Denis Zakaria the type of player Arteta needs to strengthen his midfield, given how critical it is for him to do so? Here's a link to his video Highlights, watch it and let us know what you think about the move. (Source - The Mirror)
