Liverpool are set to compete with Arsenal and Manchester United in the race to sign Borussia Monchengladbach midfielder Denis Zakaria, according to a report in Germany.

Sky Germany, as quoted by Inside Futbol, is reporting that the 22-year-old promising midfielder is attracting a lot of interest from the Premier League.

The same article states that Premier League leaders Liverpool FC are interested in the up-and-coming Swiss star, as well as Arsenal and Manchester United.

In fact, the three English clubs have reportedly held meetings with Zakaria’s representatives with view to a potential move to the Premier League.

According to the same story, the trio of English clubs will face competition from Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund for his signature.

The report goes on to add that Zakaria is unlikely to move in January but the midfielder’s long-term future appears to be away from Borussia Monchengladbach.

The report concludes that the Bundesliga club would be receptive to offers in excess of €50m for Zakaria.

The Switzerland international has scored seven times in 68 games in the Bundesliga since his move to Borussia Monchengladbach from Young Boys in 2017.

He’s already amassed 24 caps for the Switzerland national team by the age of 22.

Zakaria’s current deal with Gladbach will run until 2022.
