Arsenal Dealt a Blow in Signing This Defensive Midfielder

The Gunners have been concentrating on bringing backup goalkeepers and creative midfielders, but they are not ruling out the possibility of adding to their ranks elsewhere. Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur are up against Roma for Denis Zakaria, who has been identified as a top target by Jose Mourinho.

The Serie A giants have scouted Zakaria and are interested in signing the midfielder from Borussia Monchengladbach. Zakaria has suitors in the Premier League, with Arsenal and Tottenham reportedly interested in signing him.

Roma has already spent a lot of money to buy Tammy Abraham from Chelsea, so it would be interesting to see if they are willing to go all out for Zakaria to please Mourinho.

Roma senior member Tiago Pinto has contacted Zakaria's entourage Fali Ramadani about a move, according to Italian source Corriere dello Sport.

The 24-year-old is aware of the Serie A club's interest and is willing to transfer to Rome this summer if the club can complete a rumoured deal with Gladbach.

He is in the final year of his contract with the Bundesliga club and is expected to become a free agent in 2022, but despite interest from the Premier League, he might join Roma this summer.
