Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool are keen on signing Borussia Monchengladbach defensive midfielder Denis Zakaria in the January transfer window, according to ESPN.
ESPN have reported that Liverpool are one of three clubs to have made ‘serious offers’ to Zakaria, who is out of contract at Monchengladbach at the end of the season and earns £51,000 per week as salary (Salary Sport).
Bayern Munch and Borussia Dortmund are the two clubs who are most keen on the 25-year-old Switzerland international defensive midfielder.
Zakaria’s agents are in talks over a move in the January transfer or in the summer of 2022, according to the report.
Could Denis Zakaria join Liverpool in January?
In our view, Liverpool do have a very good signing of Zakaria in the January transfer window.
Monchengladbach will surely not want to lose the 25-year-old defensive midfielder on a free transfer in the summer of 2022.
Now, of course, the Bundesliga club will not expect a lot in transfer fees for the former Young Boys star now, but they could still get a few millions.
As for Zakaria, he will be well aware that Liverpool could offer him far more than the £51,000-a-week salary he is getting right now.
Moreover, Liverpool are aiming to win the Premier League and the Champions League this season.
In our view, Liverpool would be very appealing to Zakaria in the middle of the season.
