Liverpool Eye Wijnaldum Replacement As They Challenge Juventus And City For Bargain Bundesliga Star

Liverpool, Manchester City and Juventus are all interested in snapping up Borussia Monchengladbach midfielder Denis Zakaria, according to reports in Italy.

The Swiss international will be available on a free transfer next summer, and it appears that the Reds are eyeing the player as a potential replacement for Georginio Wijnaldum.

Zakaria has been tracked by a number of teams in England over the years, including City, Manchester United and Chelsea, but a serious knee injury had set back his progress. The 24-year-old has, though, been in decent form for Gladbach this season, leading to renewed interest in him.

Liverpool may face a stern challenge from Juve, in particular, with it being claimed that the Serie A side have already begun talks with Zakaria’s new agent: Ali Dursan.

It means Jurgen Klopp’s side will have to move fast if they are to secure the midfielder’s signature. Considering his talent and the fact that he won’t cost a fee, it does seem like the type of deal that the Reds would pursue.
