Liverpool determined to sign 23-year-old Bundesliga midfielder

By | June 7, 2020

Liverpool remain interested in securing the services of Borussia Monchengladbach midfielder Denis Zakaria, according to the Sky Germany reports.

The 23-year-old is having a stunning form this campaign in Germany, with Manchester United, also believed to eyeing a move for his signature.

Gladbach are reluctant to sell the Swiss midfielder, however, with his current deal running until 2022.

With news that reported the Merseyside Reds transfer target Thomas Partey could put pen on a new deal at Atletico Madrid, Zakaria could be an excellent alternative.

With experienced midfield duo James Milner and Adam Lallana linked with a departure from the club this summer, there is a need for new faces in the Reds midfield.

While Jordan Henderson and Fabinho are strong options in the No.6 role, the latter is still, for me, better playing further forwards and more competition for the ex-could do no harm.

Zakaria has scored two goals and assists apiece in the league this campaign, which is one more each than Brazilian midfielder Fabinho, averaging the same number of tackles per game (2.1) and further more interceptions (1.6 to 1.2).

Meanwhile, Liverpool still consider Thomas Partey as their main transfer target to strengthen their midfield area, however, Zakaria is an alternative option for Klopp.
