According to the club’s sporting director, Denis Zakaria ‘prefers a move’ over a new contract at Borussia Monchengladbach. Arsenal and Manchester City are reportedly interested in signing the defensive midfielder.
In addition, Monchengladbach CEO Max Eberl admitted that the club is battling to sign the 24-year-old to a new contract amid speculation about a move to the Premier League. ‘We’ve been attempting to extend Denis’ contract since October,’ he stated.
‘Denis and his management made it obvious to us that they would prefer a summer transfer.’
Despite vying with captain Granit Xhaka and Atalanta’s Remo Freuler for a spot in the midfield double pivot, the 34-cap international played twice for Switzerland at Euro 2020, including in the quarter-final they lost on penalties to Spain.
