Arsenal are considering a deal to sign Borussia Monchengladbach midfielder Denis Zakaria which includes Granit Xhaka heading the other way, according to reports.

The Daily Star is reporting that Arsenal are interested in a deal to sign the 22-year-old Zakaria in January as the Gunners look to add to their squad in the mid-season transfer window.

The same story says that this deal would mean that Newcastle United – who have been linked with Xhaka in recent weeks – would miss out on signing the Switzerland international.

According to the same article, Zakaria’s good form for the German side this season has attracted interest from a host of top clubs, including Arsenal.

The same story says that Xhaka is almost certain to leave Arsenal in January after his public falling out with Gunners supporters.

Zakaria has been in good form for Borussia Monchengladbach this season and has scored two goals and made one assist in 11 Bundesliga games so far.

The same report says that the likes of Tottenham, Manchester United and Inter Milan have all been linked with moves to sign the Swiss midfielder in recent weeks.

The article concludes that any deal for Borussia Monchengladbach to sign Xhaka would be dependent on Arsenal being given first refusal to sign Zakaria in the summer.
