Man United and Tottenham look at young Swiss international to improve next year
According to Bild, Denis Zakaria is a highly wanted man. Premier League teams, Man United and Tottenham have shown interest in the Bundesliga star.
The 22-year-old currently plays for Borussia Monchengladbach as a midfielder.
Reports say that Bayern Munich, Inter Milan and Dortmund all initially showed interest in the Swiss player. Man United and Spurs have now joined the race but have some serious competition.
However, Dortmund apparently had a £20 million bid rejected in 2018. The sporting director for Borussia, Max Eberl, is known to be waiting for a significantly higher transfer fee.
However, he would be open to some reasonable offers. This could give the two Premier League sides some time to negotiate a price.
The Switzerland star moved to the Bundesliga side from Young Boys in 2017.
He is known as a defensive midfielder and has upped his value since the start of his career massively. It is now reported that his current club will want around £35 million or higher for him.
Switzerland teammate, Xhaka, recently spoke about the midfielder. He claims that his development is outstanding. Having Zakaria next to him on the field makes him feel better.
However, he has said that this is the time for the star to remain focussed. This is a crucial time in his career.
He will now have to make a decision on his future. Tottenham can finally spend money and Man United are looking for a squad refresh. With the future of Pogba and Matic up in the air, Solskjaer needs to recruit.
